Prolactinoma and Nettle Root Extract Supplement

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have a small prolactinoma, and have been treating it with Cabergoline .5 mg twice weekly. I would like to take a Nettle Root Extract Supplement for hair growth and boosting Free Testosterone, but I read somewhere that it may increase prolactin levels.  Has anyone read more on this subject, and if it's safe to take Nettle Root Extract as a supplement with a prolactinoma?  I would love any feedback.  Thanks!

    is there a chemists near you? it might be worth popping in to check with the pharmacist. they'll have the reliable drugs and interactions information so they should be able to advise you.

    let us know - it's very interesting.
