Specializes in Endocrinology
Many: There are many drugs available to treat pituitary tumor but they are usually used after pituitary surgery. The only two drugs commonly used to treat pituitary tumor before surgery are: bromocriptine and carbegoline. These are utilized to treat prolactin-producing pituitary tumor.

Depends: It matters what the pituitary tumor produces. Often, bromocritpine is used for prolactinomas. Discuss with a good endocrinologist.
