Does Parlodel Delay Periods
TRYING TO CONCEIVE 18/03/2015 was my period & Parlodel day 1 I'm now on 2.5mg morn& 2.5mg night When& What mg clomid (clomiphene) can I take for 5days wit Parlodel?
Parlodel (bromocriptine) ovulation: Parlodel (bromocriptine) is often used to treat hyperprolactinemia and help ovulation. Women with hyperprolactinemia many times will ovulate while taking parlodel (bromocriptine) once their prolactin levels are normal. However it they don't ovulate then clomiphene can be used. We usually start with 50 milligrams of clomiphene a day for 5 days and slowly increase until ovulation or 150 mg per day for 5 days, before switch. ...Read more
Be patient: Hi. I assume you're treating a prolactinoma. It takes time for the prolactin level to normalize and then for normal rhythmic hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian function to resume. Your prolactin dose may not even be adequate yet, so further dosage adjustment may be necessary before your periods resume. Be patient. Are you tolerating the bromocriptine OK? Good luck! ...Read more

Pituary gland tumour it is 7mm am on bromocriptine&have been having it for 1 month&period has already came back I ave 2.5 my doc said you need 5mg why?
Tumor shrinkage: Hi. Many prolactinomas shrink in response to bromocriptine. Return of periods and cessation of lactation are two goals of therapy, but so is tumor shrinkage. Are you tolerating the bromocriptine OK? If so, the tumor might get more shrinkage on 5 mg than on 2.5 mg. If you get really good control for a couple of years, sometimes you can stop the bromocriptine entirely and the tumor stays gone. ...Read more

Too early: prolactin level might come down after two weeks of therapy with dopamanergic agents. Titration of the dose may be required as well as more time. Long term use of Bromocriptine requires monitoring for pulmonary and retro peritoneal fibrosis. Your adenoma can be surgically removed if it gets a bit larger. ...Read more

I'm 23 Started taking Bromocriptine 2.5mg 3 days ago got period 2 weeks early. Red with big clots and lots of cramps (not normal). Call doc or ER?
Prolactinoma?: Hi. Why are you being treated with bromocriptine? I must assume for a prolactinoma, but it would be better not to guess. Prolactinomas often cause amenorrhea, and bromocriptine can restore periods...but usually not after only 3 days of treatment. If you are dizzy and/or have a fast heart rate, go to the ER. Otherwise, see your gynecologist. Good luck! ...Read more
Had unprotected sex 3 times in a week, getting lower stomach period like pain 2 weeks before period, taking 16mg bromocriptine, could I be pregnant?
Take a test: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. The abdominal pain will need to be evaluated separately. ...Read more
High prolactin level of 22.8ng/ml. Last period was 29th march & next period should 30th april, 23rd april I used bromocriptine for 8days. Missed period?
High Prolactin: If you were started on bromocriptine for an elevated proloactin then that explains your cycle irregularity. High prolactin levels inhibit the menstrual cycle. That is often how the benign brain tumor called a prolactinoma is found. Normally the medication is given daily not just for 8 days. Clarify the plan with your treating physician. ...Read more
