Default Bromocriptine FAQ

Question: I read in the bromo book that you shouldn't use bromocriptine with ephedrine or another sympathomimetic, is this correct?

Answer:
Cincotta/Meier were looking specificlaly at the effect of bromo on insulin sensitivity and wrote that sympathomimetics (of which EC) is one blocked the effects.

I put that in the book without thinking about it too much.

However, EC is known to impair insulin sensitivity peripherally so the blockage makes sense.

This is different than the metabolic effects I was looking at. I did try contacting the researchers about this specific issue but they never emailed me back.

And folks who used bromo with EC reported that it worked fine. So it's not somehting to be concerned with so far as I'm concerned.
