I went to see the NP in my doctor's office. I discussed with her I was having a menstrual cycle every other month so she decided to do some lab work on me. This is when she noticed I had a elevated prolactin level. I had a MRI done to r/o any problems with my pituitary gland. The MRI was normal.
I had to get some psy meds renewed for my bipolar disorder. I ask my psy doctor about this issue and he stated that risperdal will cause an elevation in the prolactin level. I am not lactating. He stated if I did start lactating he would have to change the med to something else.
Has anyone heard of this ??
