Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Your Prolactin could be high because of certain drugs you may be taking, also certain problems in Pituitary gland. Are you having any visual defects. It is not raised very much and can be reduced by drugs like Cabergoline. Consult your Doctor to investigate the possible pituitary gland cause and benefits of drug treatment.
