Stop bromocriptine: You can stop taking this medication "cold turkey". But if your taking it for abnormal lactation be prepared that this condition will restart.

Bromocriptine: Bromocriptine is used primarily to inhibit pituitary function. Milk production can be stopped with bromocriptine, and it is used for acromegaly to inhibit growth hormone, and with certain pituitary tumors to decrease tumor size. If you are taking bromocriptine, you are being prescribed it for a reason, and your physician should advise you when to use it or discontinue.
