Hi,

Parlodel contains bromocriptine which is used to treat parkinson's disease. It can improve the ability to move and can decrease shakiness, stiffness, slowed movement and unsteadiness. It is also used to treat high levels of a certain hormones namely prolactin and growth hormone. High levels of prolactin may cause problems like unwanted breast milk, weight gain, difficulty becoming pregnant, decreased sperm production etc. Side effects of Parlodel are dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, constipation, headache, lightheadedness, sleep problems, loss of appetite, dry mouth, stuffy nose, confusion, hallucinations, anger, allergic reactions etc. If you experience any of these side effects, you should contact your doctor for medical help.

Take care. Hope I have answered your questions. Let me know if I can assist you further.
