Commonly prescribed for: Equine Cushing's Syndrome
Therapeutic Class: Dopamine Agonist
Pergolide is the drug of choice to treat the most common endocrine disease of older horses and ponies. This disease is called Equine Cushing's syndrome. The scientific name is pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction. Equine Cushing's syndrome is caused by decreased production of an important chemical messenger called dopamine. People with Parkinson's disease also have decreased dopamine levels and pergolide was used to treat Parkinson's disease until 2007. The FDA withdrew pergolide from the human market due to cardiac complications seen in some human patients. These problems have not been seen in the horse.
