Except in individuals with acromegaly, where it decreases high blood levels of growth hormone, bromocriptine mesilate is a nonhormonal, nonestrogenic drug that suppresses prolactin secretion in humans with little or no impact on other pituitary hormones. Bromocriptine mesilate is a dopamine receptor agonist that stimulates dopamine receptors in the post-synaptic area. Dopaminergic neurons in the tuberoinfundibular process secrete a prolactin inhibitory factor (considered to be dopamine) that modulates prolactin production from the anterior pituitary; dopaminergic neurons in the corpus striatum are engaged in motor function regulation.

Dosage guideline:
General: It is recommended that Bromocriptine mesilate be taken with food. Patients should be evaluated frequently during dose escalation to determine the lowest dosage that produces a therapeutic response.

Hyperprolactinemic lndications: The initial dosage is 0.5 mg to 2.5 mg tablet daily. An additional 2.5 mg tablet may be added to the treatment regimen as tolerated as tolerated every 2-7 days until an optimal therapeutic response is achieved.Based on limited data in children of age 11 to 15 the initial dose is 0.5 to 2.5 mg tablet daily. Dosing may need to be increased as tolerated until a therapeutic response is achieved. The therapeutic dosage ranged from 2.5-10 mg daily in children with prolactin-secreting pituitary adenomas.

Acromegaly: The initial recommended dosage is 0.5 to 2.5 mg on retiring (with food) for 3 days. An additional 0.5 to 2.5 mg should be added to the treatment regimen as tolerated every 3-7 days until patient obtains optimal therapeutic benefit. The maximal dosage should not exceed 100 mg/day.

Parkinson’s disease: The basic principle of bromocriptine mesilate therapy is to initiate treatment at a low dosage. The initial dose of Bromocriptine mesilate is 0.5 of a 2.5 mg tablet twice daily with meals.
