Issue: 
Pages: 
100–01

INTRODUCTION

Dopamine has an inhibitor effect on prolactin and inhibition of dopamine increases the serum prolactin level. Several publications (1, 2) identified the serotonergic drugs as one cause of hyperprolactinaemia; Selective Serotonin Receptor Inhibitor (SSRIs) were sometimes considered one of the most frequent iatrogenic causes of hyperprolactinaemia (3). All SSRIs were identified as a cause of hyperprolactinaemia: paroxetine (3), fluoxetine (4), fluvoxamine (5), citalopram
(6) and sertraline (3).
