Hi,

Dopergin contains lisuride that belongs to the group of medications known as dopamine agonists is used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, migraine and high prolactin levels. This medication should be taken for as long as your prescribing doctor has advised it for you depending on your present medical status.

Some medical studies suggested a significant drop of prolactin level after lisuride therapy like Dopergin. So, this medication can reduce prolactin levels to normal values, improve fertility as well as the symptoms of hyperprolactinemia like rapid formation of acne pimples and help restoration of menstrual cycles. If your prolactin levels again become higher in the near future, then the symptoms of hyperprolactinemia like rapid formation of acne pimples may reoccur after stop taking this medication.

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

Regards,
Dr. Zubayer Alam, General And Family Physician
