    I've only been on this for 1.5 weeks. I'm on the lowest dose of 2.5 mg for now. Dr. will increase in a couple of weeks I think. LOTS of headaches, some dizziness, sleepless nights, fatigue, not too much nausea at all. I'm also experiencing pain in my joints...anyone else having that? Too early to tell the effectivness. I'll report back in a couple of weeks.

    My prolatin level was in the range of 79 after using bromocriptine for 3 months its down to <10. I've had no dizzeines, no headaches, no nausa. But I have blurred vision constantly, maybe from tumor. Dr. says this is very unusual for this drug to cause this. Has anyone else experienced this side effect?
