    Great medication. Started out with 2.5mg at 277 prolactin levels. After one month on medication and 1 week off prolactin decreased to 219. Doctor recommended 5mg. side effects were just sever headaches and numbness on the right side of face. Waiting on prolactin level results in another week.

    Was diagnosed with 3mm prolactin secreting tumor, was placed on medication right away, initial prolactin levels at 70, checked 1 month later, prolactin at 40, recently checked 1 week ago at 13! Working great for me , some drowsiness and nausea at the beginning, now hardly any side effects. I am eating healthier and losing a little bit of weight, very happy!

I had no intention of having children so I did not go on any medication. 2 years later is was (59) & just recently up to (89)& the MRI found a 5mm adenoma.

    Since taking bromocriptine I have noticed a decrease in my weight. I also experience stuffiness at night. Overall I am very pleased.
