... most recent medication for over 10 years is cabergoline. My prolactin level is now very low 1.9. I would like to quit taking the medication now. I do not have an Endocrinologist treating me to ask questions about the side effects after taking the drug for so long. Can I just stop or do I need to wean off slowly?
I have been taking cabergoline for a pit tumor for about 3-4 years at a dose of 4mg three times a week and I had to stop it when I was going to start an experimental drug.. all I did was a real quick wean where I took 3mg for two doses then 2mg for 2 doses then 1mg for a few doses and I was off of it. I was then told I would still have cabergoline in my body for about 25 days, so I had to wait 4 weeks before I could begin the new drug I was waiting to start. I never felt any withdrawal symptoms or anything when I stopped, I felt about the same up until I started having side effects with my new med.
