For the past 4 months l have gone natural and alternative medication. l do not show any signs that the tumor is growing or is making me sick. My other 5 hormones associated with the pituatary gland are almost normal except the prolactin. After reading the side effects of this drug l am not comfortable taking it. Should l take it?
All drugs have side-effects but not everyone experiences them. Unfortunately it is impossible to predict what side-effects will effect you, if any.
At the end of the day you need to way up the benefits of taking bromocriptine against the risks of side-effects. If the benefits out weigh the risks then follow the advice of your doctor and take the medicine.
This is a decision that only you, with the help of your doctor, can make.
