Hi,

1. Hypothryoidism can stimulate the prolactin producing cells in pituitary - leading to increased prolactin. Stress can also elevate the prolactin

2.No need of a prolactin lowering drug, You can start on thyroxine hormone relacement which will normalise your thyroid function and prolactin in 4-6 weeks time.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
