Dostinex, also known as Cabergoline, was originally introduced by the anti-aging community to the bodybuilding world. The drug is one of the best drugs for combating prolactin and its effects.
This drug is routinely recommended by medical practitioners for treating hyperprolactinemic (idiopathic and pituitary adenomas) conditions and may even be advised to minimizing production of breast milk. Dostinex is even used by men with hyperprolactinemia and struggling with enlarged mammary glands, production of milk, reduced sperm production, impotency, and decreased sex drive. The dopamine agonist, Dostinex, puts a stop to side effects of prolactin and sends a message to the body for reducing the rate of prolactin secretion besides binding with receptors on lactotrophs; dopamine is also useful in inhibiting the synthesis and secretion of prolactin.
The tablets of Dostinex include cabergoline, a dopamine receptor agonist and chemical name of the drug is 1-[(6-allylergolin-8ß-yl)-carbonyl]-1-[3-(dimethylamino) propyl]-3-ethylurea. Its molecular formula is C26H37N5O2, and its molecular weight is 451.62. For oral administration, Dostinex tablets include 0.5 mg of cabergoline and the list of inactive ingredients includes leucine, USP, lactose, and NF.
Dostinex is admired by sportsmen on anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs as it reduces the chance of any of prolactin-related side effects. Many studies in the past have revealed that the drug is very effective to reduce prolactin and prolactin related conditions and side effects. Moreover, the drug is also useful in treatment of hyperprolactinemia and its symptoms. In addition to these advantages, the drug is also beneficial to treat sexual dysfunction that is caused by excess prolactin that is highly correlative with usage of specific anabolic steroids such as Trenbolone and Deca Durabolin. Dostinex use is also associated with reduced recovery time and gaining an erection between orgasms. If that was not all, this performance enhancing drug can even improve all parameters of sexual function and drive. This drug is also useful in combating estrogenic side effects such as oily skin, acne, gynecomastia, and bloating and is equally effective for treating galactorrhea and sexual dysfunction.
Dostinex is also admired by some sportsmen for its unique ability to improve memory and help in processing information more quickly. It is also admired for its potential of helping users learn new motor skills in a short span of time besides helping them learn new strategies or techniques to gain a big lead over competitors. The drug is also recommended to patients struggling with Parkinson’s disease because of its abilities of working on information pathways and nervous system of the body.
The drug is also a hit with sportsmen who want to feel “full” more often and reduce cravings for food without feeling the discomfort that dieting usually brings and this is the biggest reason why the drug is popular among pre-contest bodybuilders and other dieters who want to avoid anxiety and discomfort associated with calorie restrictions. Furthermore, the drug is neither physically nor mentally addictive and one of the best drugs when it comes to promoting positive sense of well being.
The recommended dose of Dostinex(Cabergoline) is half a milligram (1/2 mg) a week with a glass full of water and this low dose is very much effective for users to experience all of the anti-prolactin, antidepressant, cognitive, and prosexual effects of Dostinex. A medical practitioner may recommend cardiovascular evaluation and echocardiography for assessing valvular disease before initiating Dostinex treatment. Sportsmen who have used steroids in the past or regular steroid users may use it in doses of 0.25 mg – 0.50 mg twice a week. Since Dostinex can aid sleep, it is best taken before bed time, with or without food.
Medical advice should always be sought before any one can make use of Dostinex, especially those suffering with liver disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), heart valve disease, and abnormal scarring/thickening of the lining in the lungs/heart/behind the abdomen (pulmonary/pericardial/retroperitoneal fibrosis). It is very important to note that this drug is not to be administered concurrently with D2antagonists, such as phenothiazines, butyrophenones, thioxanthenes, or metoclopramide. It should also not be used by patients with pregnancy-induced hypertension, for example, preeclampsia, eclampsia, and post partum hypertension unless its potential benefits exceed the possible risks. Moreover, the drug is not indicated for the inhibition or suppression of physiologic lactation; patients with hepatic impairment should observe a high sense of care and must use the drug only under medical supervision. The tablets of Cabergoline are not recommended to patients with uncontrolled hypertension or known hypersensitivity to ergot derivatives, history of pulmonary, pericardial, or retroperitoneal fibrotic disorders, or those having a history of cardiac valvular disorders.
This drug is also not meant to be used by pregnant and lactating women or women who may get pregnant while using the drug and those suffering from liver, kidney, and heart complications or having an existing allergy to the drug or any of its ingredients. If you are thinking of using this drug and using drugs such as medicines for treating migraine, mental illness, nausea, vomiting, and bacterial infections, the same is never recommended. In case you experience side effects such as weakness, tiredness, breast pain, hot flushes, dizziness, unusual sleepiness, abdominal pain, constipation, changes in behavior, rash, or hair loss, medical advice should be sought on an immediate basis. Medical intervention also becomes necessary if users of this drug experience side effects such as irregular heart beat, breathing problems, or leg cramps or pain in the toes or fingers.
