Cabergoline As A Treatment For Alcoholics

Cabergoline Marketed As Dostinex and Cabaser May Be A Treatment Option For Alcoholism

The investigators on this study were testing the drug Cabergoline on mice who were addicted to alcohol, decreased their alcohol intake and addictive behavior.  The Cabergoline injected mice also displayed behavior that they were less likely to experience a relapse.

Principal Investigator Dorit Ron, PhD, at the Gallo Center and associate professor of neurology at University of California San Francisco, who also led the study, says that, “This is encouraging, because it demonstrates that cabergoline is specific for alcohol, but does not affect general reward or pleasure. One of the problems with some existing drugs to treat alcoholism is a side effect that decreases pleasure, making compliance an obstacle to sobriety.”  Cabergoline looks like it could be a real option to treat alcoholics.

The pill form of Cabergoline drug has been FDA approved for use in conditions caused by the body producing excess hormone prolactin. Cabergoline aka Dostinex increased the body’s production of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDFN). Earlier findings of Ron and her colleagues had revealed that GDFN, when injected directly in the brain region linked to drug-seeking behavior, reduced the desire for alcohol in mice that were addicted to alcohol.

In the current study, rats were trained to press a lever to obtain alcohol. Once injected with the cabergoline, the test rats were less likely to use the lever. It was also found to be beneficial for reducing relapse which is usually a severe problem faced by recovering alcoholics.

Cabergoline renews hope for treating alcohol addicts, however the conduction of human clinical trials are recommended before this drug can be safely prescribed.  We will keep our readers informed of any progress regarding the use of Cabergoline as a treatment for human alcoholics.  

Is it possible that Cabergoline aka Dostinex or Cabaser could be a treatment for other drug addictions?

Their findings are published online in the Biological Psychiatry journal.

Cabergoline Medication


According tо Kenith Striesund, cabergoline, marketed undеr thе name Dostinex, іs а fairly nеw medication used tо treat а variety оf medical disorders. Doctors primarily prescribe Dostinex tо treat people wіth Parkinson's disease, tо prevent women frоm producing milk whеn thеy want tо stop breastfeeding аnd tо lower prolactin (hormone tо stimulate thе breast tо fill wіth milk) levels іn people suffering frоm pituitary tumors. More recently, David Jay Brown, іn hіs article "Sex аnd Cabergoline" says thаt physicians hаvе prescribed Dostinex tо enhance male sexual stamina. Cabergoline cаn produce sоmе unwanted medical issues аnd caution should bе used whеn оn cabergoline.
Cabergoline Contraindications
Cabergoline should nоt bе used оr prescribed іn lower dosages fоr people whо hаvе certain pre-existing conditions. says thаt physicians should nоt prescribe іt fоr patients whо suffer frоm fibrotic diseases оf thе heart аnd lungs such аs pulmonary fibrosis оr cystic fibrosis. Patients wіth uncontrolled high blood pressure should аlsо avoid cabergoline аll together. Patients whо hаvе heart disease, chronic lung disease аnd liver disease should receive prescriptions оf lower doses bеcаusе thіs medication mаy mаkе thеsе conditions worse. Cabergoline usually lowers blood pressure; however, sоmе individual mаy experience а raise іn blood pressure sо doctors should use extreme caution wіth patients wіth blood pressure disorders аnd pregnant women.
A fеw precautions thаt patients prescribed cabergoline should become aware оf. Cabergoline mаy cause drowsiness оr dizziness sо bеfоrе driving оr using machinery, patients should learn hоw thе drug affects thеm. Orthostatic hypotension (drop іn blood pressure whеn getting up frоm sitting оr lying position) proves vеry common causing dizziness аnd fainting spells. Most importantly, cabergoline mаy lead tо problems wіth thе heart valves. If chest pain, shortness оf breath оr swelling іn thе hands оr feet occurs, contact а physician immediately.

Active Ingredient: Cabergoline
Manufacturer: Pharmacia & Upjohn SpA, Italy
Dostinex (Also known аs Cabergoline / Cabaser) іs а relatively nеw drug Dostinex was primarily invented fоr thе purpose оf lowering prolactin іn patients wіth а pituitary tumors аnd оthеr prolactin related conditions. Sоmе оf thе conditions whіch Dostinex hаs bееn used successfully аrе:

Treatment оf hyperprolactinemic disorders, pituitary adenomas (tumors) & prolactinomas
Dostinex restored testosterone levels аnd increases libido (sex drive)
Dostinex hаs bееn shown tо bе vеry useful іn treating Parkinson’s Desease
Dostinex іs successfully used tо treat Restless Legs Syndrom (RLS)
Dostinex stops excessive lactation
Dostinex improves energy loss аnd fatigue
Dostinex (Cabergoline) іn thе treatment ofacromegaly

However іt seems thе potential оf Dostinex / Cabaser / Cabergoline goes fаr beyond thе treatment оf tumors. Dostinex increases dopamine, а brain chemical thаt іs associated wіth feelings оf pleasure аnd wеll being. Elevation оf dopamine levels often leads tо а marked increase іn sex drive, improvement іn mood, aleterness, learning ability аnd creativity. Off-label uses fоr Cabergoline include sex drive enhancement аnd increased ejaculation volume, mood elevation, appetite suppression аnd fat loss.
Dostinex іs аlsо used by athletes аnd bodybuilders іn order tо lower prolactin levels resulting frоm drug аnd steroids use оf Deca Durabolin (nandrolone) аnd Fina (trenbolone) This is an off-label use and we stress that we do not condone the use of Deca or Fina (nandrolone or trenbolone respectively).

What іs thе difference bеtwееn Dostinex аnd Cabaser ?

Both Cabaser аnd Dostinex contain thе same active ingredient Cabergoline. However, Cabaser contains 1mg per tab whіlе Dostinex contains оnly 0.5mg per tab. Since thе Cabaser tabs аrе scored, many tаkе half а tab оf Cabaser tо gеt thе same dosage аs 1 tab оf Dostinex аt а fraction оf thе price. However thіs cаn bе done оnly according tо your doctor's permission. 

If you wish to study Dostinex / Cabaser as Cabergoline (the active ingredient) you can buy Cabaser as a research chemical.

Cabaser, Cabergoline, Dostinex

Why Cabergoline?  What are the off-label uses for Cabergoline? There are many pharmaceutical grade medications on the market which are specifically geared toward addressing sexual issues, such as erectile dysfunction and low testosterone levels. Sometimes medications that were not originally designed to address male sexual enhancement are used in this arena by health care providers. For instance, Cabergoline is a relatively new drug, which was originally designed to decrease the prolactin in individuals who have pituitary tumors, and other prolactin related conditions. However, it has also been used to augment male sexuality.

Are you a researcher looking to purchase Cabergoline as a research chemical?  If so, you can buy Cabergoline from reputable research chemical suppliers.

What Is Cabergoline?

Please note that Cabergoline is also known on the pharmaceutical market as Dostinex or Cabaser. While Cabergoline has been used to lower prolactin in people who have pituitary tumors, it has also been used to treat other ailments and issues, such as Parkinson’s Disease, Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), excessive lactation, low energy levels and acromegaly.

Cabergoline aka Dostinex aka Cabaser has also been used to increase testosterone levels, as well as increase libido in males.  This is why Cabergoline has gained heightened popularity lately. You may be wondering how Cabergoline may augment and address so many different ailments and still address sexuality. Cabaser aka Dostinex aka Cabergoline supposedly does this through a rather indirect method - it is able to increase dopamine levels. Dopamine is a chemical in the brain that is intrinsically connected with feelings of pleasure and well-being.

Cabergoline Dostinex Cabaser Uses

Cabergoline is often marketed as Dostinex.  Dostinex is a medication that also goes by the name Cabaser. Originally, cabergoline aka Dostinex was created to treat pituitary tumors by lowering the levels of prolactin in the body.  However other uses have been found for cabergoline as well. As with any drug, ask your doctor to make sure it is safe and will not interact with other medications you're taking.

Related Uses:
  1. Testosterone

    • Testosterone is the male sex hormone. When it is deficient in the body, cabergoline aka Dostinex is used to boost it.


    • Restless leg syndrome is a condition in which uncomfortable sensations in the legs cause people to move them uncontrollably. Cabergoline aka Dostinex may be used to treat restless leg syndrome.


    • Parkinson's disease is a condition that causes tremors and stiffness in the muscles. Caberoline aka Dostinex may help to relieve these symptoms.


    • People who are suffering from low energy levels and fatigue use cabergoline as Dostinex or Cabaser for a lift.


    • Cabergoline as Dostinex or Cabaser is used by bodybuilders to reduce elevated prolactin levels, which are the result of steroid use.  Anabolic steroid use is illegal in the United States of America.  

      Uses of Cabergoline aka Dostinex Adapted from Wikipedia:
      • Hyperprolactinemia.
      • Adjunctive therapy of prolactin-producing pituitary gland tumors (prolactinomas).
      • Monotherapy of Parkinson's disease in the early phase.
      • Cabergoline: Combination therapy, together with levodopa and a decarboxylase inhibitor such as carbidopa, in progressive-phase Parkinson's disease.
      • Cabergoline: In some countries also: ablactation and dysfunctions associated with hyperprolactinemia (amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, anovulation, nonpuerperal mastitis and galactorrhea).
      • Cabergoline: Treatment of uterine fibroids.[4][5]
      • Cabergoline: Adjunctive therapy of acromegaly, cabergoline has low efficacy in suppressing growth hormone levels and is highly efficient in suppressing hyperprolactinemia that is present in 20-30% of acromegaly cases. Growth hormone and prolactinare similar structurally and have similar effects in many target tissues, therefore targeting prolactin may help symptoms when growth hormone secretion can not be sufficiently controlled by other methods.
      • Cabergoline: Cushing's disease - cabergoline may be used to lower ACTH levels and cause regression of ACTH producing pituitary adenomas.[6]
      • Cabergoline: Other pituitary adenomas - cabergoline has demonstrated certain efficacy in controlling or reducing other kinds of pituitary adenomas, as well as silent or non-fucntional adenomas.

Off-label/recreational uses

Cabergoline aka Dostinex or Cabaser has at times been used as an adjunct to SSRI antidepressants as there is some evidence that Cabergoline counteracts certain side effects of those drugs, such as reduced libido and anorgasmia. Cabergoline also has been suggested online that it has a possible recreational use in reducing or eliminating the male refractory period, thereby allowing men to experience multiple ejaculatory orgasms in rapid succession, and at least one scientific study supports those speculations.[7] Cabergoline aka Dostinex or Cabaser is also used by bodybuilders to control gynecomastia caused by elevated prolactin levels through the use of anabolic steroids such as Nandrolone and Trenbolone. Additionally, a systematic review and meta-analysis concluded that prophylactic treatment with cabergoline reduces the incidence, but not the severity, of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), without compromising pregnancy outcomes, in females undergoing stimulated cycles of in vitro fertilization (IVF).[8] Also, a study on rats found that cabergoline reduces voluntary alcohol consumption

Cabergoline Regarding Dopamine

Cabergoline which is commonly known as Dostinex is a dopamine agonist. We like Dopamine.  Dopamine is good. Dopamine is a chemical, found in the brain, which transmits nerve impulses.  Dopamine is involved in the formation of epinephrine. This is probably why groups of Life-Extentionistas are very big on this Cabergoline. The hypothalamus releases dopamine, and that can inhibit the release of prolactin from the anterior lobe of the pituitary.  If you use anabolic steroids,  Cabergoline aka Dostinex aka Cabaser helps reduce the chance of any of prolactin related side-effects. Cabaser aka Cabergoline aka Dostinex has actually been shown in numerous studies to have an extremely high success rate in lowering prolactin and prolactin related conditions and side-effects.  In fact, for mgmt of hyperprolactinemia and it’s symptoms, Dostinex aka Cabergoline is the preferred treatment in terms of effectiveness as well as having very few undesirable side effects.  What does this mean for you? Cabergoline aka Dostinex does this very well for both men and women, it should be noted…almost identically actually.

Dostinex Is Cabergoline

Cabergoline - Dostinex

The Technical Specs

Dostinex is a brand name.  Dostinex is one of the brand names for Cabergoline.

DOSTINEX Tablets contain cabergoline, which is the subject of this cabergoline blog and a dopamine receptor agonist. Cabergoline has a chemical name: 1-[(6-allylergolin-8ß-yl)-carbonyl]-1-[3-(dimethylamino) propyl]-3-ethylurea. Its empirical formula is C26H37N5O2, and its molecular weight is 451.62. The structural formula of cabergoline is as follows:

DOSTINEX® (cabergoline) Structural Formula Illustration

Cabergoline is a white powder soluble in ethyl alcohol, chloroform, and N, Ndimethylformamide (DMF); slightly soluble in 0.1N hydrochloric acid; very slightly soluble in n-hexane; and insoluble in water.
DOSTINEX Tablets, for oral administration, contain 0.5 mg of cabergoline. Inactive ingredients consist of leucine, USP, and lactose, NF.
Cabergoline can also come as liquid cabergoline.  You won't see a liquid Dostinex because Dostinex is a brand of cabergoline and they only make it in tablets.

The following paragraphs regarding Dostinex aka cabergoline are from Dostinex was originally introduced to the bodybuilding community by the anti-aging crowd. About a decade ago, the only place you could really find this stuff being sold was on mail order lists for various life-extension clinics. Although they are, frankly, a very weird bunch of people, the life-extensionistas were among the first to find and make available a lot of the stuff that eventually found its way into athletic circles, like Dostinex and other such nootropics (drugs that increase mental activity).

Dostinex is one of those drugs. I first saw it on an anti-aging clinic’s price list about a decade ago, and more recently, I saw it being discussed by various people who are “in the know” on the internet. The former fact made it slightly interesting to me, while the latter had exactly the opposite effect. Actually, I first mentioned it in an ancillary article I wrote several years ago, but recently I decided to do some more research on it, and I have to admit, it’s a very interesting drug. Before I explain what it does, I think a discussion of some important hormones and enzymes are in order.
It is very interesting to see Dostinex aka cabergoline showing up in anabolic steroid forums and bodybuilding forums.  I have heard information regarding Dostinex being used in the "anti-aging" crowds but I have never spoken to any people in any of those groups about cabergoline.  I will be looking further in Dostinex / cabergoline usage in these areas in the near future.  I am also curious if college students are using cabergoline for the sexual health enhancements to impress their girlfriends.  I plan to interview some college students from the University of Georgia Athens (UGA) in regards to cabergoline use.
