SIDE EFFECTS CONTINUE AFTER STOPPING DRUG

I was on carbergoline 0.25 twice weekly for one month and had terrible hot flashes . Now off of it for almost 2 weeks and the flashes continue. any one know why? ## Generally, a month is the length of time it takes for a medication to reach its full efficacy level in the body and, once that happens, it can take several weeks for it to fully process out and for any side effects to completely wear off.

Are there any other questions or comments?
