The prolactin levels decreased by 93.6 with normal levels obtained in 73 of patients at doses of mg per week. Three of 5 patients who had failed to normalize prolactin on prior dopamine agonists achieved normal levels.The authors concluded that cabergoline is more effective and better tolerated than bromocriptine in women with hyperprolactinemic amenorrhea. In a United States multicenter study of patients with macroprolactinomas, we also found cabergoline to he effective and well tolerated.
