    I had absence of period for a year and inability to get pregnant in 2005. I was diagnosed with Micro prolactinomia and put on 2.5 mg. Within a month my levels were down and I had a period and within a few months I was pregnant. I had my second baby a year ago. My levels as of my last check were around 7. I have had nausea, but I take it right before bed and that helps a ton!! I'm amazed with ... Show Full Comment

    I was diagnosed with a prolactin secreting tumor in 2005. I had the surgery to have my tumor removed because it was not responding to the medication Dostinex. I contiuned on Dostinex after the surgery and my prolactin level has stayed slightly elevated. Around 38. My doctor chose to put me on Bromocriptine to see if my level would go down this time. I had my blood drawn today so now is the waiting ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this med for over 20 years. I was diagnosed with a micropituitary adenoma when I was 19 and prescribed 2.5 mg - for the first 6 months or so I took this several times a day - after that, just once a day. I was never told to take this with food - figured that out on my own. Now it at least shows up on my presciption bottles! One side effect that I did have was while in colleg ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking the 2.5 mg dose for 5 weeks now and it no longer affects me physically when I take it at night. The only time I was sick was on the second day. Still no period though (not that I really want it back!) I can't sleep worth anything - not sure if that's due to the medication or not. Nonetheless, it has stopped the physical symptoms I was having.
