Exciting news?

I read this article yesterday about a drug called Cycloset. Although it's for diabetes, it also for insulin resistance and it's basically the drug bromocriptine which is sometimes used in PCOS treatment and for women with high levels of prolactin. I don't understand enough about it yet, but it makes me wonder if this couldn't be a new PCOS treatment. Its name even sounds like something that could be used to regulate cycles, I mean it's called 'Cycloset' for crying out loud! Here is published paper of the clinical trial. I haven't had a chance to google it much yet, but you can bet I will soon.

Must add to list of questions for RE.

Hopefully it doesn't have the lovely side effects that Metformin does!
