After reading reviews and side effects it seems that not many people who take bromoctiptine experience severe depression as a side effect. Unfortunately, I cannot go on with bromoctiptine for more than 2 weeks at a time due to the severe depression it causes. I had the same issue with cabergoline. However, I have had absolutely no issues with nausea, headaches, or fatigue, which seems to be the main complaint from other users.
You don't seem to have a question. I consider you fortunate not to have the side effects of an addiction of some variety from these drugs. The severe depression is definitely a bad enough side effect. Here's a link to drugs that are in the same class should you want to try one of them:
