What Is Bromocriptine Used For?

Off-Label Bromocriptine Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend bromocriptine for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. At this time, bromocriptine is sometimes used off-label for the following uses:
  • Treating neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS)
  • Suppressing lactation in new mothers who choose not to breastfeed (although Bromocriptine is usually not recommended for this use, due to serious complications).


Using Parlodel (or generic versions) to treat type 2 diabetes would be off-label, as would using Cycloset to treat acromegaly, hyperprolactinemia, or Parkinson's disease
