Hi all. I read over all your posts and just wanted to say that I feel I have gained weight due to this as well. I was just recently, well I wouldn't say diagnosed but for lack of a better term, with prolactinoma. I am waiting to get the MRI done to see how bad it is which will probably be in January. My doctor has started me on bromocriptine a month ago and I still have yet to start my period. As for the weight gain I was 130 about 3 years ago and now am at 180. Actually the past month or two I think I leveled off.

Anyway I am supposed to have a follow up appointment on the 17th of this month to see how the meds are working and get the MRI setup. I am still learning about this and hoping it is the cause of the weight gain and can be reversed. (I previously thought the gain was from birth control but it didn't seem to be stopping so I was concerned.)

I would like to hear updates from all of you. Thanks
