What is Parlodel (Bromocriptine) used for?

How does it work

Bromocriptine mesylate is a dopamine agonist. It activates dopamine receptors in the absence of the physiological ligand for this receptor, the neurotransmitter dopamine. Essentially, it will forcefully increase dopamine in the body.

Understanding Dopamine

Dopamine is a hormone and a neurotransmitter, which plays an important role in the human brain and body. With the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter: a chemical released by nerve cells to send signals to other nerve cells. When a person is addicted to drugs, dopamine levels will be increased.

Parkinson's disease involves a dysfunction of the dopaminergic system, which will result in tremors and movement disorders. There is also evidence that schizophrenia involves altered levels of dopaminergic activity. Also, ADHD and Restless Legs Syndrome are believed to be associated with decreased dopaminergic activity.


There are a few ways Bromocriptine is used in bodybuilding.

Prolactin Inhibition: Whenever a progestin compound is used (Trenbolone and Nandrolone Decanoate), prolactin levels will increase. Using bromocriptine to lower prolactin levels will keep prolactin-based gynecomastia away and also keep libido strong.

Calorie Restricted Diet: When a bodybuilder cuts calories, leptin levels will drop and the body will respond by clinging to nutrient stores. It is believed that bromocriptine will help normalize the slow metabolism during this time, and it will help maintain normal leptin stimulation. This phenomenon is related to its dopamine effects.


The normal starting dose in bodybuilding is 2.5-5mg, either divided during the day or daily. If the side effects become too great, then cutting the dose in half may be effective.
