    I have been taking this medication for a year. the first 3 weeks I felt dizzy and drowsy, and a rash on neck. I could not drink any caffeine, once I stopped drinking coffee I felt fabulous. I recovered my menstruation 3 weeks after taking the medication and in 3 months my prolactin levels that were 150 went down to 30. The side effects disappeared.

    Lowered my blood prolactin to normal levels very quickly. It also increased my energy levels, restarted my periods, stopped my lactation, improved my depression, and improved my sexual function back to normal levels. I did find that I got more headaches while taking the drug, and I needed to take it right before bed for this reason. Could not believe how much better I felt taking it.

    I started taking Cabergoline for a pituitary adenoma (prolactinoma). Great medicine, the tumor reduced in size very quickly (effectiveness), no side effects at all, and I've been very happy with it. Prior to Cabergoline, I was taking bromocriptine. That medicine was giving me nausea, hot flashes, and I would get fatigued very easy and with very little physical activity. After getting swi ... Show Full Comment
