Unclear question: Not sure what you mean by long enough. It certainly is long enough to recheck your prolactin level and see if it has normalized. However, the duration of treatment is usually longer than several weeks, if this is what your question was. Again, there are variables in the treatment such as your symptoms, the initial prolactin level, CT or MRI findings of the brain, goals of treatment, etc.

Type of headache: You have chronic headaches, which simply get better with a carbohydrate load. If you haven't seen a neurologist, do so. These are pretty much always benign.

See a doctor: There are a few possibilities for the symptoms you're experiencing, including pelvic organ or rectal prolapse, which is when the walls of the vagina pouch down, or the rectum sags down out of the body. Your gynecologist, or a specialist called a urogynecologist can help confirm the cause of the bulging, and reduce your symptoms with a pessary (non-surgical support), or surgery.

Tylenol, (acetaminophen) then wait: A 2 year-old toddler with mild cold symptoms can use tylenol (acetaminophen) for fevers, aches, or fussiness, during the first 2-3 days. Over-the-counter cold and cough medicines are not recommended for young children. If a toddler has changes in behavior, higher fevers, ear or throat pain, or any other worrisome symptoms, he should see a doctor for an evaluation.
