    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.

    Well, 3 months on it now at 5mg. Still sleeplessness, achyness, fatigue, stuffiness (right after I take the pill), headaches and ocassional dizziness and vomiting. BUT, the good news is I had my first "normal" mentrual cycle in 9 months! I guess that means the drug is working. We'll see if it continues to happen. I'll see my doctor next week to check my prolactin levels. My HG h ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this medication for over 5 years, due to a prolactinoma. I currently take 7.5 mg and my prolactin levels have been around 30. I had the surgery in 1999 and was back on the bromocriptine within 2 months. I often feel nauseaus throughout the day and dizzy. I have learned to eat just before bed and take an acid reducer daily to try and limit vomitting. I have also had problems wit ... Show Full Comment
