How do I manage my prolactinoma on a daily basis?

To manage prolactinoma on a daily basis, it's important to follow your doctor's recommendations for treatment. Some people who don't have many symptoms may not have to do anything at all. Other people may have to take a medication, such as bromocriptine, several times a day. These medications are usually long-term treatments that only work for as long as you're taking them, and they may cause side effects like dizziness and nausea. Because of this, it's important to follow your doctor's directions regarding medications. Anyone with prolactinoma should be aware of any changes in symptoms, and you should maintain a close relationship with your doctors so you can alert them to any changes.
