Can Zyprexa cause elevated prolactin?

Olanzapine, an antipsychotic with an intermediary D2 receptor binding affinity, induces a moderate elevation of prolactin levels (Peuskens et al., 2014).

Which antipsychotics cause high prolactin levels?

Conventional or typical antipsychotics are commonly associated with elevated prolactin serum levels, with haloperidol being the most potent drug in terms of its increasing prolactin levels. Amisulpride is another antipsychotic that can cause a significant increase in prolactin serum levels [38,39].

What medications affect prolactin levels?

Medication induced hyperprolactinemia. Mayo Clin Proc 2005; 80:1050….

Medication class Frequency of prolactin elevation* Mechanism
Haloperidol High Dopamine D2 receptor blockade within hypothalamic tuberoinfundibular system.
Loxapine Moderate
Perphenazine Moderate
Pimozide Moderate

How do antipsychotics affect prolactin?

Typical antipsychotics block dopamine inhibition of the pituitary and cause prolactin rise. Secretion of prolactin by the pituitary is under inhibitory control via dopamine from the hypothalamus. Interference with dopamine secretion or action leads to an increase in serum prolactin.

What antipsychotics do not increase prolactin?

Now we know that atypical antipsychotics such as clozapine, olanzapine, quetiapine, sertindole, and ziprasidone are not associated with significant prolactin increase.

Does Vyvanse affect prolactin?

Drug Levels and Effects The 15 mg dose significantly decreased serum prolactin by 30 to 37% at times after the infusion.

Can anxiety cause high prolactin levels?

The highest levels occur during sleep and shortly after you wake up. Prolactin levels also get higher during times of physical or emotional stress.

Do all antipsychotics cause high prolactin?

All antipsychotics have the potential to raise prolactin. All typical antipsychotics are associated with hyperprolactinaemia to varying degrees. Of the atypicals, the highest prevalence is with risperidone.

Do antidepressants increase prolactin?

It is some evidence that antidepressants that inhibit serotonin reuptake can increase the prolactin level. This adverse effect has been called serotonin overactivity. Selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) have been reported as the most common cause of drug-induced hyperprolactinemia.

What happens if your prolactin levels are too high?

Excess prolactin can cause the production of breast milk in men and in women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. In women, too much prolactin can also cause menstrual problems and infertility (the inability to get pregnant). In men, it can lead to lower sex drive and erectile dysfunction (ED).
