I was diagnosed with a small prolactinoma in August last year, and went to a specialist to get treated for it, but also the symptoms I was having. Before I even started medication I was ALWAYS feeling tired, my memory was getting bad, and some blury vision. I was also diagnosed with an under active thyroid, so it makes sense now why I was feeling that way. I was put on bromocryptine and it gave me the worst anxiety I've ever had, which gave me insomnia some nights. The bromo helped my thyroid but not decrease the prolactin. I've been on levothyroxin and cabergoline for over 4 months now. Less anxiety, but now I am feeling depressed. My specialist said that the cabergoline does not cause depression, and has not suggested anything to lesson the symptoms I have (now headaches still sleepy and foggy headed). I am having trouble staying engaged at work and remembering to do things. Management knows about the prolactinoma, but I don't think they understand what I'm going through right now. I don't want to loose my job over this and I'm not sure if it will hurt or help if I tell them how I feel. Any suggestions? O
