Cabergoline History and Overview
Cabergoline, commonly known in the community as Caber, is a dopamine agonist that is made to reduce the levels of prolactin in the body, In the serious medical circles, it is known for its use as a way to combat prolactinomas, which are a kind of benign tumour that affects the pituitary gland and results in excess production of prolactin. A lot of athletes use it to combat the elevated prolactin levels that you get in drugs like Nandrolone and Trenbolone. This is especially important for people that are prolactin sensitive and want to avoid those nasty side effects that so often come from those kinds of compounds.
Cabergoline is typically sold under a brand name called Dostinex. It’s not a new drug by any means, and has been around for 36 years since Farmitalia-Carlo Erba Spa made it in the year 1986. Later on, the drug was bought out by a company called Pharmacia, and it then was bought and remained at the famous Pfizer company in 2002.
Cabergoline Functions and Actions
As a dopamine agonist, Caber is supposed to work with the D2 receptor in your body. It essentially works as an inhibitor by binding to the receptor site and preventing the secretion of prolactin throughout the body. And by proxy, it reduces serum prolactin levels. Also, being a dopamine agonist, that means it is capable of treating Parkinson’s disease and hyperprolactinemia, which is a condition where you get high levels of prolactin in the blood. It can also help combat Cushing’s disease, and as previously mentioned, prolactinomas, which are tumours that form on the pituitary gland.
Cabergoline works directly to inhibit prolactin secretion in the pituitary gland’s lactotroph cells. In actuality, the function of the drug is incredibly simple, and that’s why it’s so interesting to a lot of people. The medication itself was actually accidentally discovered, and while people were simply experimenting with ergot alkaloids, they managed to discover this incredibly effective drug.
Effects of Cabergoline
There are numerous reasons why one would prefer to use Cabergoline, both in a medical and performance context. This ensures that one can maximize the most out of Cabergoline, even if you’re not planning to be a world champion athlete. In fact, some of the uses in personal life are of a sexual nature. For the athlete, however, the primary reason they would need caber is due to their use of Anabolics. This is because there are some steroids or compounds that raise prolactin, Tren comes to mind as one popular kind. Because they can raise prolactin levels, a lot of people who are sensitive to prolactin can run the risk of gyno. Running Cabergoline prevents this from occurring. It’s also popular to use because it will stave off erectile dysfunction and decreased libido, which is often caused by elevated prolactin levels from Nandrolone or Tren. Nandrolone, also known as Deca, is notorious for causing erectile dysfunction, and because of this problem, many avoid Nandrolone based drugs. If someone can reduce or limit their prolactin as much as possible, they can avoid those unsavoury side effects.
Some athletes like Cabergoline because they enjoy the rush that often comes from increased dopamine. Scientifically, however, this data isn’t really supported, but because of the anecdotal evidence, it remains very popular. The surge in dopamine can still provide benefits in terms of memory and cognition, and this is a very big asset to those in combat sports. Many athletes also claim that Caber encourages them to stick to healthier food choices.
Another positive attribute of using Cabergoline is the positive sleep effects that people report on it. For many Caber users, they claim they get deeper, more restful sleep. And lastly, they also report that there is a tremendous increase in sex drive. When we have sex, particular males during ejaculation, their prolactin levels go up, thereby reducing the desire for sex immediately after. When you take Cabergoline, you’re basically reducing your overall prolactin levels, so you’ll find that the desire to have sex is increased. In some cases, almost immediately with or without any rest at all.
Side Effects of Cabergoline
Overall, the most common side effects of Cabergoline are upset stomach, nausea, and possible stomach cramps. These are usually all GI related issues and are related to the amount of Cabergoline that someone is taking. If someone reduces the dose and takes it with food, these issues can normally be avoided entirely. Other side effects are related to lowering you prolactin way too much. The fact is, as much as it can be annoying for its sexual side effects, prolactin is important. We need prolactin in our body as with any other hormone. It’s no different than taking an AI and reducing your estrogen to dangerous levels. Reduced prolactin can lead to sexual dysfunction or an inability to orgasm. For women, it can prevent them for producing breast milk, and in men and women, it can lead to depression and anxiety.
Other more serious side effects include an inability to breathe long breaths, inability to urinate, edema in hands and feet, and heavy coughing. If these effects show up, stop using Cabergoline immediately and seek medical attention.
Less serious side effects can include drowsiness, headaches and nausea.
Caber can be acquired via most pharmacies as with any other pharmaceutical drug. Some underground labs sell it, but it is not commonly available for sale. However, the one place where it is very common to find is on research chemical websites. It is a very desired compound on those sites, but coincidentally, it is also very low in supply. That said, it remains a very popular item, so if you do try to get it online, be prepared to pay a pretty penny for it.
Overall, Caber is a great product for the anabolic steroid user because it provides a practical prevention of prolactin-related gynecomastia or side effects, while at the same time offering some cognitive benefits. Even if you’re not a steroid user, low doses of it can still provide a myriad of benefits, mostly of sexual nature.
