    That's a real shame. It's a powerful drug especially in high doses.

    He took it for six years and was taking some other research drug
    CV205-502 which is a dopamine agonist it’s an interesting story and probably why these studies are more ethical when trialed on rats.

    I wonder how much he was on? I took 15mg/day for 1.5 years and had to stop because of the side effects. It did increase my sex drive. I've taken it since at much lower doses though with out any problems.

    When I was on it through my old endo from 2007- early 2009 I got it from my local pharmacy by prescription. Since then I've gotten it through Inhousechemist. They carry an Australian product that seems high quality.

    Pituitary tumor could have been the culprit of heightened stress and agitated sexual state which is itself a type of stress,

    It might be more of a specific type of serotonin agonism that makes bromocriptine users become addicts because L-DOPA which increases purely dopamine across the board has no such reported effects

    The guy was a 42 year old virgin with a safe, boring life, grew himself a tumor and then seemed to enjoy life, he should be grateful but then goes on to sue for 8.5 million pounds for the joy ride, probably in order to begin another one. A catch 23 situation, if he didn’t take the bromo or he did, he would regret both.

    Early stages of a movement disorder. It resolved gradually after I stopped all medicines. I was also on an SSRI, benzo and a sleeping pill so I think it was a combination of all the meds and working nights and not just the bromocriptine.
