prolactin and mood

Hi all

This is a random stab in the dark.

Has anyone noticed a link between higher prolactin and low mood?

The tumour that I have is not a prolactinoma, and while my levels are slightly elevated, they are 'only' in the hundreds not the thousands.
I've noticed that my mood has been going down such that over the past 6-9 months I have really struggled and it's not getting easier. Just by chance, blood tests have shown prolactin going up. This could of course merely be a coincidence.

I'm due to see the endocrinologist in a few months' time but I'm wondering if it is worthwhile asking to go back onto cabergoline? I was on it once for about a year; I became hyperactive so I was taken off it. Now I think that a bit of hyperactivity-inducing drug would be handy just to help function on a day to day basis!

Thanks for any thoughts
