CB LIN 0.5MG contains Cabergoline which belongs to a group of medicines known as prolactin inhibitors. It prevents lactation (production of milk) by decreasing the levels of a hormone known as prolactin and also used to reduce abnormal quantities of the hormone prolactin in the blood. Hyperprolactinemia is a condition of elevated prolactin levels in blood which could be physiological, pathological, or idiopathic in origin.
