... different person. He is depressed, anxious, cannot sleep and obsesses about minor issues. He is also quick to anger. He takes 0.5 mg.-1 1/2 pills twice a week. He had this Prolactinoma on his Pituitary gland for 10 years before we were told by a new doctor who studied all his scans. Radiology in 2 hospitals doing pre-op sinus series missed it - it was 15 mm. The tumor is gone becasue of the Cabergoline but the endocronologist wants him on it for life to prevent the tumor's return. Does anyone out there have any of these symptoms?
Hi, i'm sorry no one has got round to answering your question until now! If you still need information, i had a search through the site and came up with some interesting side effects that could be the cause of your husbands change of personality? I have added the link for you to look through. Take particular notice of the side effects listed in the 'psychiatric' section.
Hello collielover2 & welcome to the site. Delila has given you the side effects, but also my husband has suffered with depression & many of the problems you describe also. He had a pitutatary tumor that was surgically removed several years ago, & is medicated for depression, but continues to have problems. Recently his endoctrinologist, (finally got him to go see one again) found out his adrenals are not working, his thyroid is about as low as it can be, testosertone is low, & glucose is high etc... He is on many new meds for these conditions, & I do see a difference already after just one month. His doctor feels the pituatary tumor is either comng back because of all these other conditions, or they didn't get it all.He cannot have another MRI to find out because of a pace maker. I assume his endroctrinologist is keeping a close check on this as it effects so many differnt hormones in our bodies. Best of wishes to you & him...
