Prolactin inhibitors

What are Prolactin inhibitors?

Prolactin inhibitors are agents that inhibit the production of prolactin, a hormone that stimulates milk production after childbirth. In both sexes, excessive secretion of prolactin (hyperprolactinemia) can give rise to abnormal production of milk (galactorrhea).

Prolactin inhibitors are dopamine agonists, which effectively treat hyperprolactinemia.
