I get post orgasm hangovers really bad. I dont like them, so I started to do research on how people like me could possibly alleviate the hangover process or skip it entirely. Anyways, I stumbled across a drug with some interesting effects on the human brain. Its called Cabergoline. Read below:
[quote]"Cabergoline is from the dopaminergic family of drugs that increase the level of dopamine and also decreases the levels of the hormone prolactin. Prolactin is the hormone secreted in women after giving birth and to enhance their lactation for breast feeding. However, prolactin has recently been shown to be an inhibitor to a healthy libido. But men can also suffer from prolactinoma (high levels of prolactin) leading to a lack of sex drive- as well as developing breasts, particularly as prolactin levels tend to increase for most men with age.
Recently it has been discovered that prolactin is released immediately after an ejaculation and may be part of the reason men like to go sleep after sex with no will for further love making.
Cabergoline has been proven to significantly decrease prolactin and in so doing increase the sex drive (libido) substantially. There have been reports of enhanced and multiple orgasms as well as stronger ejaculations.
Dr. Manfred Schedlowski, who was involved in this trial in Germany, said; “Cabergoline raised the libido to enable the male to orgasm again more quickly. We saw that prolactin rises after orgasm and then thought that maybe prolactin is a negative feedback system. Our subjects who took cabergoline had decreased prolactin levels and reported their orgasm was better and there was a shorter refractory period.”
Dr. Schedlowski went on to say; "We interviewed the subjects and found they were able to have multiple orgasms in very rapid succession. This is sitting very nicely with our hypothesis that orgasms and sexual drive are steered by prolactin and dopamine in the brain."
Furthermore, cabergoline had no side effects on men during the tests; this was reported in an article for the International Journal of Impotence Research. The researchers now plan to carry out trials to investigate whether cabergoline will have the same effect on women. [/quote]
So they appear to be touting this drug as a sex enhancer to help you achieve orgasm again and again. However, thats not what entices me about this drug. We all should now know that dopamine drops dramatically and prolactin rises dramatically after orgasm. From Marnia's book it states that low dopamine is responsible for the following symptoms:
Inability to love
Anhedonia (no pleasure)
Lack of ambition
So my question is this: Since this drug causes dopamine levels to rise and prolactin to fall, could this drug be used to help alleviate and/or skip the post orgasm hangover symptoms, if so, which ones would it target specifically?
Has anybody tried this drug? Does anybody know if dopamine levels fall off again if the drug is stopped?
This drug only effects the dopamine/prolactin chemicals specifically, and there are other chemicals that matter as well, such as oxytocin. But it seems like this drug could remove that social anxiety, get you out of the house, and talking to people (thus generating oxytocin)
I am heavily thinking about trying an experiment on myself.
What are your thoughts?
