Abstract
Oral administration of 0.5 milligram L-Dopa (59927) to normal young men induced release of human-growth-hormone (9002726) 40-90 minutes after treatment. There were no significant differences in the levels of plasma luteinizing-hormone (9002679) and follicle- stimulating hormone between treated and control subjects. The single, low dose of L-Dopa induced infrequent nausea, vomiting, mild headache, "feeling cold", and orthostatic hypotension.
