Been having bromocriptine tablets for 22 days now still not had my period why is this?

Been having bromocriptine tablets for 22 days now still not had my period why is this?

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

I have a pituitary gland tumour benign and I take bromocriptine tablets 5mg and I occasionally smoke hookah will this affect my tumour?

Yes and no: Hi. Assuming your pituitary tumor is a prolactinoma (based on the fact you're being treated with bromocriptine), yes bromocriptine (or the preferred dopaminergic, cabergoline) CAN shrink the tumor. Smoking a hookah will not hurt your tumor, but WTF?! Smoking is utterly stupid and horrible for your health! Do you want physicians on this site to condone stupid behavior? I think you're outta luck. ...Read more

Since I have a pituitary gland tumour benign that is 7mm I am now taking bromocriptine tablets butin the future will it be hard for me to have a baby?

Cannot say: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health,
Most common cause of a pituitary tumor secretes prolactin, and crowd out normal hormone production. Of course the pills you mentioned are supposed to treat that.
but it doesn't look good.

You will not.: There is not special way to prevent this. You may want to ask your doctor that prescribed this as to what can be done. May be able to premedicate for this such as antinauseant to prevent the side effects. I am not sure what is available in the UK for this. ...Read more

Prolactin: It may take a few months. Also, it depends on how high the prolactin level was, and whether or not the 2.5 mg is lowering prolactin sufficiently. You may need a higher dose, but it is wise to start low and work up. Go with your doctor's advice and be patient. ...Read more

Have been havin bromocriptine 2.5mg tablets for 13 days nw cause I have a pituitary gland tumour that is 7mm stil haven't gotten my period back why??

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

Having bromocriptine 2.5mg tablets for 10 days now &I have already had 2 side effects which are blocked nose&nausea is this normal can I carry on?

Yes, you can...: ...but we don't want the treatment to be worse than the disease (prolactinoma)! It won't do you any serious harm to continue with low dose bromocriptine, but nasal congestion and nausea suck! Ask your doc for a trial of cabergoline. The mechanisms are the same, but cabergoline tends to be better tolerated. Good luck! ...Read more

Prolactin: elevation is the only indication for bromocryptine. If it is elevated then that is a good medicine (and also a reason to see if there is a prolactin secreting struture somewhere). If the prolactin isn't elevated then bromocryptine isn't as good as metformin. ...Read more
