Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cabergoline (CAB) used for?

Short Answer

Cabergoline (ca-BER-goe-leen) is used to treat medical problems that occur when too much of the hormone prolactin is produced. It works by stopping the brain from making and releasing the prolactin hormone from the pituitary gland.

Long Answer

Cabergoline may be used when a woman is not ovulating because she has high levels of prolactin in her blood. It may be used to treat a man whose reproductive functions are impaired because he has abnormally high levels of prolactin. It may also be used to treat Parkinson's disease.
