Sometimes: Some patients, especially those with small tumors, will continue to have normal prolactin levels if they stop bromocryptine after successful treatment, but this should only be done under the supervision of an endocrinologist.

A 50-year-old member asked:

Could prolactinoma patients stop bromocriptine after some years?

Prolactinoma: Patients with prolactinoma typically have to take medications like bromocriptine for a life time - there might be some cases of patients that were able to come off the medication but in my experience this is quite rare unless there is surgery to remove the prolactinoma.
