A study was carried out in 6 normal healthy volunteers to investigate the effect of piribedil (1.5 mg intravenously as a bolus) on serum prolactin levels. The results showed that there was a significant decrease in the levels at 180 minutes after administration. When the prolactin changes were compared with those obtained after oral administration of l-dopa (500 mg) or bromocryptine (2.5 mg) the maximal percentage reduction from baseline levels was greatest with bromocryptine and least with piribedil at the doses used.
