Additional information about Lysuride

Lysuride Indication: For the management of Parkinson's Disease
Mechanism Of Action: Lysuride is an anti-Parkinson drug chemically related to the dopaminergic ergoline Parkinson's drugs. Lysuride binds to the 5-HT(1A) and 5-HT(2A/2C) receptors. It is also thought to bind to the dopamine receptor and to act as a dopamine agonist. Evidence has also emerged that Lysuride also binds to the Histamine H1 receptor. Lysuride is also used to lower prolactin and, in low doses, to prevent migraine attacks.
