A drug that stimulates production of prolactin inhibitory factor and suppresses lactation. Many years ago, bromocryptine (Parlodel) was given to postpartum women who did not want to breastfeed their babies to inhibit milk production. It is now known that such medication is not only not necessary, but may actually be dangerous to women. It is no longer approved by the FDA for this purpose, though still used in other countries.
