anybody tried cabergoline?
« on: November 16, 2016, 12:53:17 PM »
I found a report on a trial in atlanta concerning the use of cabergoline for men with anorgasmia. try googling medpage today , drug restores normal orgasm in men. it seems a genuine trial, with a good success rate. long half life ( 3 days ) so you only have to take it couple of times week but it isn't approved by nhs so its a private prescription here in uk. ive had it prescribed by the therapist I'm currently seeing looking for a cure. he is anxious about possible side effects , and therefore so am I, as I had a heart attack 10 years ago , and also suffer from anxiety issues
so if anybody has experience on it, please post!

I think the report you're referring to is this one:

http://www.medpagetoday.com/meetingcoverage/aua/32903

I think I saw that article some time ago. Cabergoline is one of the drugs I might want to try, but the possible heart problems which are mentioned prevent me from trying it without medical supervision. My current neurologist just prescribed me bupropion at least until mid-december. He also mentioned cabergoline as a possibility, but I still don't know whether he'll prescribe it to me or not.

I don't know what to tell you... We want a solution because life without sex is like mid-life, not living the fullest sensations we could achieve. In my case, I would try to play it safe and have a heart test done... But I've also gone through desperation and thought about buying the substance online.

hi sensation
I am a very wary person by nature and not prepared to take random meds like some guys on here seem to. I have had a heart attack 10 years ago, and a stent fitted, but the therapist I'm seeing in Harley st who prescribed me the cabergoline specialises in physchosexual cases - transgender, emotional issues, as well as other stuff like me - and he was ok for me to take it on a trial basis and that I am to inform him of any unusual effects I may notice. he is aware of the possibility of meeting trouble half way if he had read me a long list of possible side effects. the power of suggestion!  the pharmacist was very helpful and looked into possible interactions with the meds I'm already on. he suggested an ecg after a few months use just to be sure, but I tend to have a yearly check anyway because of my history. its a difficult call to make but I'm giving it a try. only been on it a week so far but no effects good or bad so far. if anything I would say my libido and erection quality is actually down. hopefully that is temporary. I'm going through a period of anxiety and depression at the moment, due to a stuttering relationship, which doesn't help

I hope everything goes well. My heart goes out to you. I'm still not feeling much with bupropion 150 mg after one week... Nothing bad. If anything, I'm feeling a bit better emotionally and my libido is high... But it was already high before and I wasn't particularly depressed or anything. But physical pleasure sensations are still almost zero. So I still don't know if this is just placebo effect. This is my first 'real medication' (prescribed). I've tried lots of supplements with almost no results.

hi sensation
I too have tried all kinds of things, all to no avail. the cabergoline has not been a success. I'm convinced it was coincidence and a muscular problem rather than a side effect of the drug but I developed chest pains a couple of weeks in. as I had a heart attack 10 years ago I got a bit freaked, so decided to stop the cabergoline. things are calming down now. after a while I will consider whether to give it another try

Hi fireman. I'm sorry to hear that. I don't know whether my doctor will prescribe me cabergoline in the future. I'll keep you all informed as long as I can. I hope you're feeling better now. Best regards.

I did, it didn't do absolutely anything for me.

I was on cabergoline for a year or so, maybe 6 years ago. I didn't think it really helped. But I had a one-month's supply that I had not used. So a couple months ago I took it.

As I review my notes, it appears I did have improvement during that time.

But I haven't thought about it too much because I'm trying different doses of adderall, at different times of the day.

I would definitely try it again, though.

For the guys doing cabergoline, did you have your prolactin tested?

Cabergoline is generally prescribed for hyperprolactinemia. If you have that, it's probably a good idea. Also, getting diagnosed with hyperprolactinemia likely helps with getting coverage for using Cabergoline.

update on the cabergoline
an unexpected issue has arisen a few months down the line. after my annual blood tests which were taken about the time of my trying the cabegoline ( carried out ever since my heart attack 11 years ago ) my gp noticed that my liver function results were off the chart. asked me if I had had a tattoo recently - no - and told me that results such as these can be a marker for hepatitis. or liver disease....or had I taken any unusual meds as all things get metabolised in the liver. he wasn't happy when I told him about the cabergoline. the results COULD have just been a freak showing, but they have dropped right back to normal now so just a word of warning really for anybody out there thinking of trying a new potent drug. while we all want desperately to find the answer, consider any repercussions very carefully.
