High levels of prolactin in women may result in missed or irregular menstrual periods, infertility, and in some cases, bone loss. In men, this condition can lead to reduced libido and enlarged breasts. Caberlin has been prescribed in conjunction with other medications to treat patients suffering from ParkinsonÍs disease.
