Abstract

Carbidopa, at the dose of 250 mg. and benserazide at the dose of 125 mg, given orally in a single dose to healthy women aged between 23 - 26 years enhance significantly serum prolactin. The effect is not shared by two other inhibitors of AADC, namely alpha-methyl DOPA (500 mg) and fentiazac (400 mg). The effect of benserazide is suppressed by bromocriptine (2.5 mg) and blunted by 1-DOPA (400 mg) given orally simultaneusly.
