In 1995, to my dismay I was diagnosed with a prolactin producing brain tumor. What a Terrible shock the news was to me.

I became VERY sick and extremely depressed, both of which are side effects to Parlodel. I chan ... Show Full Comment

I had a cyst on my pituatary gland and had it removed in 1995. I was initially put on parlodel and it made me so sick that i couldnt handle it so I had the surgery.

Comment:
For the overproduction of prolactin in my body this drug was amazing and after a couple of months my levels were practically normal. However, it caused my heartrate to speed up randomly and now I'm at the point where the cure is worse than the ailment, and before this, I was pretty healthy without any medical allergies or anything. Please be careful taking this.
