Patient :I have high prolactin , but my tumor already disappeared . Since 3 years I am taking cabergolin and
Bromocriptine BT still my level are not under normal .It keeps on fluctuating how long will it take to come back to normal
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Microprolactinoma is a small sized pituitary tumor which secrete prolactin in larger quantities.
Usually medical treatment with dopamine agonists can cure this condition.
But sometimes it may take longer periods for the treatment.
As you are having persist elevated prolactin levels, you have to rule out factors like:
Thyroid hormonal abnormalities and kidney function abnormalities, which can affect prolactin levels.
Medicines like antidepressants can increase prolactin levels.
Recurrence of prolactinoma etc.
So, please discuss these things with your doctor and plan management accordingly.
