Not having worked with this dopamine agonist, but having now looked in Merck Index, 
I ask whether you have heated the solution, and also whether you might be over saturating
the prep.
B. mesylate, in H20, has solubility of 0.8mg/ml at 25º C, and high enough mp that isomerization/decomposition is not to be expected much before actually boiling the solution.
Offhand, I'd *guess* you're not super-saturating, and at normative saline would not be salting-out a precipitate.
Noted is that the molecule is 30X more soluble in alcohols, if that's of any help to you.
