Which drugs or supplements interact with cabergoline-oral?
Cabergoline is related to the ergot alkaloids. The use of cabergoline with other ergot alkaloids is not recommended due to the increased risk for adverse events. Ergot alkaloids are commonly used to treat migraine headaches. Therefore, patients receiving treatment for migraine headaches should discuss treatment with cabergoline with their doctor or pharmacist before using cabergoline.
Cabergoline works by stimulating dopamine receptors in the brain. It should not be used with dopamine antagonists or blockers which might decrease or cancel out the beneficial effects of cabergoline. Examples of dopamine antagonists are phenothiazines, butyrophenones, thioxanthenes, and metoclopramide (Reglan).
