    Personally I haven't had any major side effects on cabergoline besides at first nausea feeling. I take mine at night right before I go to bed. I've been on cabergoline now for about 4 years. Currently I take it twice a week but there was a time when I took it 5 days a week.

    I have tried Cabergoline and it had the most extreme side-effects: dreadful hopelessness and depression, nervousness, drowsiness. Generally I felt completely awful, but the symptoms were more psychological than physical.

    I had some dizziness.

    I was then prescribed Quinagolide which I have been on for quite a few years, and that seems better. Sometimes I feel sick and it has some other physical side-effects, such as constipation and indigestion, but not the dreadful despair that resulted from the Cabergoline.

    I am in Melbourne, Australia, and I have just been told that they are no longer making Quinagolide.

    I have seen an endocrinologist - I go to a hospital Out-patients Clinic - and he says that nothing can be done about it. There is no Quinagolide anywhere in Australia any more.

    Apparently the drug companies just are not making it any more.

    The endocrinologist has prescribed Bromocriptine, but I haven't started taking it yet. I am terrified of taking Bromocriptine, which could be worse even than Cabergoline.

    I have also posted this on another thread, in case someone is following it.
