Hi, I've been taking 75 mcg Quinagolide since November 2017 to reduce Prolactin. It has gone down about a quarter but my recent blood test has showed no further reduction. So I'll probably have to increase it at my next endo appointment. I'm wondering what doses others have found to be effective and how long you have taken it for?

    Hi there I was in 100 and it was lowering the prolactin levels but..... I had to stop bc I was getting quite high blood pressure so I stopped and went back to caberoline  or what ever the spelling is. I had to to stop that one at first bc I had unpredictable diareaha , now I’m on really low size of caberoline. Does not really answer your question just wanted you to watch to see if you BP goes up .

      Thanks for your reply Kim. That's interesting as my blood pressure went low when starting it and is still low at times, though I'm not sure if that's due to tablets or something else! Hope the Cabergoline works for you.
