Description of Norprolac
Norprolac is a medication with the generic name quinagolide, which belongs to the drug class known as dopamine agonists. This particular drug stimulates the dopamine receptors- specific chemicals that are found in the brain. You can buy Norprolac for the treatment of several disorders that occur due to hyperprolactinemia, which is an extremely high level of the hormone prolactin in the body. The high level of this particular hormone is known to cause several other conditions, like galactorrhea (high breast milk production) and hypogonadism (suppressed sexual glands) that may lead to infertility.
Indications & Dosage of Norprolac
Norprolac is specifically indicated for treating a diagnosed case of hyperprolactinemia, which may occur due to pituitary gland tumor or any other unknown cause. The dosage and duration of treatment would be determined by your doctor, and you must only follow the prescribed schedule. Your doctor may change the dosage of Norprolac for the best results.

Warnings & Precautions of Norprolac
You must not buy Norprolac if you suffer from reduced kidney or liver functions, or if you are breastfeeding a baby. This medicine reduces the amount of breast milk produced, which may hamper your baby’s health. Some patients who have just started taking Norprolac may experience dizziness as a result of low blood pressure. Therefore, it would be best if you take Norprolac just before sleeping. Moreover, your blood pressure may also be monitored during treatment.
If you feel dizzy while you are on Norprolac, you can get some relief by lying down until the dizziness subsides. This effect may magnify if you consume alcohol, so it is best if you avoid consuming it while you are being treated with Norprolac. You must also be careful while performing any activities that require a high level of alertness. Such activities include operating machinery and driving.
In rare cases, Norprolac may cause sudden sleepiness, especially if the patient is also taking drugs for treating Parkinson’s disease. In fact, you may begin to feel sleepy without any warning. If you experience such sudden bouts of sleepiness, you must completely avoid the activities mentioned above.
