Since the chasteberry is natural would it be better for him to be on
that vs. pergolide? Can chasteberry and pergolide be given together?

Natural or not, when it's influencing the way the body works it is a drug.
They have been used together but we have no information at all on whether
the combination is better, worse, or totally independent effects.

Let's back up a little bit first. I'm wondering about the same things as
Claire. Also, what time of year was he diagnosed and by what tests? What
were his symptoms? Has the pergolide corrected them? 10 is young to have
Cushing's. Not impossible, but unusual.
