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.

Technically this drug worked for me. It reduced my serum prolactin levels within 6 months of treatment. However, the side effects were horrid â?? severe congestion that triggered sinus headaches, lightheadedness, nausea, and hair loss. I have been off it for over a year and still suffer from alopecia and congestion though it is not as frequent.

I have been taking bromocriptine in refill bottles for a little over 2 years now and just two weeks ago, it was changed to this brand. Now, I have severe constipation. I have to get the previous one I have been using . I am rating this drug because I must give a rating to be able to post.

I had a high prolactin level of 1200, was proscribed bromocriptine and the first few weeks prolactin level went up to 1800 now after being on this med for 25yrs my levels are much lower and its working great. I do get headaches and very restless sleeps. Feelings of anxiety are more obvious too. I feel tired, fall asleep but wake every he or so. But apart from that, all's well.
