In brief: Yes

Bromocriptine inhibits prolactin which inhibits testosterone.
So, bromocriptine can raise testosterone levels, more profoundly in men. This would be most effective in a man with a pituitary tumor that is driving his testosterone down. I haven't heard of bromocriptine as a first line agent for weight loss.
