Hello madam, well from the history you have given, you are diagnosed to have hyperprolactinemia, a thyroid profile should be done first, if thyroid is excluded......And if drug induced hyperprolactinemia is excluded....you may require an MRI to look for any micro or macro adenoma. .....well cabergoline is the drug of choice....well if the medical management is not effective in lowering prolactin levels then an MRI test is required ....Basing on the report you may also require a neurologist consultation.....Hope i was helpful to you
