Dawn Marcus
Neurology
Some studies have evaluated the benefit of anti-estrogen therapy, such as danazol (Danocrine) and tamoxifen (Soltamox); the endometriosis treatment gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist followed by estrogen add-back therapy; and the dopamine mimic bromocriptine (Parlodel, Cycloset).
