>>>Is this the same bromocriptine salt given to humans?  It's given for 
Parkinson's and pituitary dysfunction, so it would seem that it does get

actually, many of the agents used in treating alzheimer's and parkinson's
disease are unable to cross the blood-brain barrier and must be
administered i.n. instead of i.v. in order for them to cross. any other
way besides intranasal adminstration <via the olfactory route> would
require invasive surgical techniques.
