Effect of domperidone, an extracerebral inhibitor of dopamine receptors, on thyrotropin, prolactin, renin, aldosterone, and 18-hydroxycorticosterone secretion in man.

Abstract

This study investigates the dopaminergic mechanisms involved in the control of corticosteroid secretion in normal subjects. TSH, PRL, PRA, aldosterone, and 18-hydroxycorticosterone (18-OHB) were measured before and after the administration of domperidone (10 mg, iv) to eight healthy males. Domperidone, a selective peripheral dopamine antagonist, stimulated… (More)
