Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Domperidone can cause high prolactin levels. There are many causes which may lead to high prolactin. Consult a endocrinologist. Other causes of hyperprolactinemia should also be evaluated. Take care.

I have high prolactin levels (45-75) and have been post menopausal for 7 years. I have breast pain, galactorrhea, headaches 24/7/365 due to the microprolactinoma 1x2x3 mm. I eliminated any meds that could increase the levels four years ago. I only take atenolol and Panhematin for AIPorphyria. Ideas on foods that might drive the levels up?

I have had problems with pituatary tumors most of my life... I'm 52 and have had a total hysterectomy about 1.5 yrs ago due to breast cancer. My Prolactin level is elevated again ( just this past week I had a draw done) I have been taking bromocriptine for some time.(yrs). I want to know since the hysterectomy should i still be taking this? I'm also taking Aromasin for the breast cancer treatment. Why now has my Prolactin level gone back up? I would say my level is probably close to 50 or higher. my last draw in December was 37.
