Medication indications

Bromocriptine 1mg Tablets

Inhibition of lactation for medical reasons

Prevention or suppression of post-partum physiological lactation only where medically indicated (such as in case of intrapartum loss, neonatal death, HIV infection of the mother).

BROMOCRIPTINE is not recommended for the routine suppression of lactation or for the relief of symptoms of post-partum pain and engorgement which can be adequately treated with non-pharmacological intervention (such as firm breast support, ice application) and/or simple analgesics.

Hyperprolactinaemia

The treatment of hyperprolactinaemia in men and women with hypogonadism and/or galactorrhoea.

Menstrual cycle disorders and female infertility

Amenorrhoea and oligomenorrhoea, with or without galactorrhoea.

Drug-induced hyperprolactinaemic disorders.

Polycystic ovary syndrome.

Some infertile women with oligomenorrhoea or amenorrhoea and galactorrhoea may be unduly sensitive to prolactin. BROMOCRIPTINE has been used successfully in the treatment of a number of infertile women with galactorrhoea who do not have demonstrable hyperprolactinaemia.

Prolactinomas

To reduce tumour size, particularly in those at risk of optic nerve compression.

Acromegaly

BROMOCRIPTINE has been used in a number of specialised units, as an adjunct to surgery and/or radiotherapy to reduce circulating growth hormone in the management of acromegalic patients.

Parkinson's Disease

In the treatment of idiopathic Parkinson's Disease, BROMOCRIPTINE has been used both alone and in combination with Levodopa in the management of previously untreated patients and those disabled by 'on-off' phenomena. BROMOCRIPTINE has been used with occasional benefit in patients who do not respond to or are unable to tolerate Levodopa and those whose response to Levodopa is declining.

Premenstrual symptoms and benign breast disease (see section 4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use).
