Benefits of Bromorex Tablet

In High levels of prolactin

Prolactin is a hormone that helps in the growth and development of breasts and also causes milk secretion in females. Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet helps to stop breast milk secretion in females that have had a still birth, miscarriage or abortion. It acts on a chemical in the brain, dopamine, that is responsible for these high levels of prolactin and stops milk secretion.

In Female infertility

Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet helps in the regulation of ovulation and menstruation. It is used to cause menstrual periods in women who have not reached menopause but are not having periods due to too much prolactin hormone in the body. Use the medicine as prescribed for it to be effective.

In Acromegaly

Acromegaly is a hormonal disorder that occurs due to excessive secretion of growth hormone in adults. When this happens, the bones increase in size, including those of your hands, feet, and face. Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet helps decrease the growth hormone levels, and therefore, helps in treating acromegaly and its associated effects. Take it as advised by the doctor to get the most benefits.

How Bromorex Tablet works

Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet is a dopamine receptor agonist. It decreases the release of prolactin (milk hormone) in the body.

Q. What is hyperprolactinemia?

Hyperprolactinemia is a condition in which a person has higher-than-normal levels of the hormone prolactin in the blood. Prolactin is a hormone produced by the brain's pituitary gland. In women, prolactin regulates periods and helps the breasts produce milk. A high level of prolactin reduces estrogen (female sex hormone) and interferes with ovulation, causing irregular or absent periods and affecting fertility. It also leads to low bone density and causes women who aren't pregnant to produce breast milk. High prolactin also affects the levels of testosterone (male sex hormone).

Q. How is hyperprolactinemia diagnosed?

A blood test can show whether your prolactin level is higher than normal. If it’s borderline, you may be tested twice to be sure. Your doctor may also give you a physical exam and order an MRI to get an image of your brain.

Q. What is the normal level of prolactin in the body?

The normal values for prolactin are:<br>Men: less than 20 ng/mL (425 µg/L)<br>Nonpregnant women: less than 25 ng/mL (25 µg/L)<br>Pregnant women: 80 to 400 ng/mL (80 to 400 µg/L)

Q. What causes high prolactin in females?

Sometimes the cause of hyperprolactinemia is unknown. Few include a noncancerous tumor in the pituitary gland, an overactive pituitary gland, underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), certain medications, and stress.

Q. What happens if the prolactin level is high in females and males?

Excess prolactin can cause the production of breast milk in men and in women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. In women, too much prolactin can also cause menstrual problems and infertility (the inability to get pregnant). In men, it can lead to lower sex drive and erectile dysfunction (ED).

Q. What are my chances of pregnancy after treatment with Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet?

Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet is a medication that is used to lower abnormal levels of the pituitary hormone called prolactin. By lowering the level of prolactin it helps you ovulate and might cause a successful pregnancy. However, a successful pregnancy depends on various other factors like your age, timing, and frequency of sexual intercourse, any underlying medical condition, and the quality of your egg and your partner's sperm. Consult your doctor if you have any doubts.

Q. Can a woman with high prolactin get pregnant?

High prolactin levels inhibit the secretion of FSH, which is the hormone that triggers ovulation. So, if your prolactin levels are high, your ovulation may be suppressed. This is why women who are breastfeeding (and thus have high levels of prolactin) usually do not become pregnant.

Q. Does Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet increase fertility?

Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet by itself does not increase fertility. It helps reduce high prolactin (hormone) levels. With this, the women may return to normal ovulation or respond better to fertility drug treatment.

Q. Does Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet lower blood pressure?

Yes, Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet has been found to decrease blood pressure in patients with hypertension and may cause dizziness or light-headedness upon standing which may cause you to collapse (if you already have low blood pressure).

Q. Can I take my regular blood pressure medications along with Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet?

Taking Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet along with other blood pressure medications might cause your blood pressure to become too low and cause dizziness. Consult your doctor in case of any doubts.

Q. Can I drink alcohol while on treatment with Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet?

It is advisable to avoid drinking alcohol along with Bromorex 2.5mg Tablet as it might increase the severity and risk of side-effects of the medicine. Also, alcohol might affect ovulation, which can make it difficult to conceive. Alcohol can also affect fertility in men by altering sperm count, quality, and motility.
