Why is this medication prescribed?

Cabergoline is used to treat hyperprolactinemia (high levels of prolactin, a natural substance that helps breast-feeding women produce milk but can cause symptoms such as infertility, sexual problems, and bone loss in women who are not breast-feeding or men). Cabergoline is in a class of medications called dopamine receptor agonists. It works by decreasing the amount of prolactin in the body.

How should this medicine be used?

Cabergoline comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken with or without food two times a week. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take cabergoline exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Your doctor will probably start you on a low dose of cabergoline and gradually increase your dose, not more often than once every 4 weeks.

Do not stop taking cabergoline without talking to your doctor. Your doctor will probably decrease your dose gradually.

Other uses for this medicine


Cabergoline is also sometimes used to treat Parkinson's disease (a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance). Talk to your doctor about the risks of using this medication for your condition.

What special precautions should I follow?


Before taking cabergoline,

  • tell      your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to cabergoline, ergot      medications such as bromocriptine (Parlodel); dihydroergotamine (D.H.E.      45, Migranal), ergoloid mesylates (Hydergine), ergotamine (in Cafergot, in      Ergomar), methylergonovine (Methergine), methysergide (Sansert), and      pergolide (Permax); any other medications, or any of the ingredients in      cabergoline tablets. Ask your pharmacist for a list of the ingredients.
  • tell      your doctor and pharmacist what other prescription and nonprescription      medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you      are taking or plan to take. Be sure to mention any of the following:      antihistamines; ergot medications such as dihydroergotamine (D.H.E. 45,      Migranal), ergotamine (in Cafergot, in Ergomar), and methylergonovine      (Methergine); haloperidol (Haldol); levodopa (in Parcopa, Sinemet, and      Stalevo); medications for high blood pressure, mental illness, or nausea;      metoclopramide (Reglan); or thiothixene (Navane). Your doctor may need to      change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side      effects.
  • tell      your doctor if you use or have ever used street drugs and if you have or      have ever had high blood pressure or any condition that causes thickening      or scarring in your lungs, heart, or abdomen. Also tell your doctor if you      have or have ever had heart valve disease. Your doctor will examine you      and will order tests to see if your heart valves are healthy. Your doctor      may tell you not to take cabergoline if you have signs of heart valve      disease or any of these conditions.
  • tell      your doctor if you have or have ever had liver disease.
  • tell      your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. If you become      pregnant while taking cabergoline, call your doctor.
  • tell      your doctor if you are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed. Cabergoline      may slow or stop the production of breast-milk.
  • you      should know that cabergoline may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, and      fainting when you get up too quickly from a lying position. This is more      common when you first start taking cabergoline. To avoid this problem, get      out of bed slowly, resting your feet on the floor for a few minutes before      standing up.
  • you      should know that some people treated with cabergoline have developed      gambling problems or other intense urges or behaviors that were compulsive      or unusual for them, such as increased sexual urges or behaviors. There is      not enough information to tell whether the people developed these problems      because they took the medication or for other reasons. Call your doctor if      you have an urge to gamble that is difficult to control, you have intense      urges, or you are unable to control your behavior. Tell your family      members about this risk so that they can call the doctor even if you do      not realize that your gambling or any other intense urges or unusual      behaviors have become a problem.

What special dietary instructions should I follow?


Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, continue your normal diet.

What should I do if I forget a dose?


Take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • heartburn
  • constipation
  • tiredness

What should I know about storage and disposal of this medication?


Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture (not in the bathroom). Throw away any medication that is outdated or no longer needed. Talk to your pharmacist about the proper disposal of your medication.

In case of emergency/overdose

Symptoms of overdose may include the following:

  • stuffy nose
  • fainting
  • hallucinations (seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist)

What other information should I know?


Keep all appointments with your doctor and the laboratory. Your doctor will order certain lab tests and other tests to check your body's response to cabergoline.

Do not let anyone else take your medication. Ask your pharmacist any questions you have about refilling your prescription.

It is important for you to keep a written list of all of the prescription and nonprescription (over-the-counter) medicines you are taking, as well as any products such as vitamins, minerals, or other dietary supplements. You should bring this list with you each time you visit a doctor or if you are admitted to a hospital. It is also important information to carry with you in case of emergencies.
