Active Ingredients

Chemical substance
Description
Bromocriptine

Bromocriptine is an inhibitor of prolactin secretion and a stimulator of dopamine receptors. The areas of application of bromocriptine are divided into endocrinological and neurological indications.

Cabergoline

Cabergoline is a dopaminergic ergoline derivative endowed with a potent and long-lasting PRL-lowering activity.

Lisuride
Quinagolide

Quinagolide is a selective dopamine D2-receptor agonist not belonging to the chemical classes of ergot or ergoline compounds. Owing to its dopaminergic action, the drug exerts a strong inhibitory effect on the secretion of the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin, but does not reduce normal levels of other pituitary hormones.
