Bromocriptine tablets and capsules should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep bromocriptine and all other medications out of the reach of children.
For most uses, if you forget to take a dose of bromocriptine, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. However, if you take bromocriptine for diabetes and you miss a dose, simply skip the missed dose (since the medication should only be taken within two hours of waking for this use). Do not take a double dose.
Bromocriptine is available in the following strengths:
- Bromocriptine 0.8 mg tablets (Cycloset)
- Bromocriptine 2.5 mg tablets (Parlodel)
- Bromocriptine 5 mg capsules (Parlodel).
