    Just wondering if anyone else has high prolactin too, or if they are taking anything for it such as dostinex?

    I can't say that I even have seen my prolactin level, off the top of my head. Is it part of a CBC or other standard test?

      Yes prolactin can raise due to testosteron! To high prolactin can cause gyno and like wise lactation. Ask your doctor for full blood panel wich means all hormones, E2, Estrodial, SHGB, Testosteron, Free testosteron and bound, Progesteron, and i could keep going. Carba and dostinex if i remember correctly decrease prolactin. Whats your testosteron dose, wich ester, injection time, and are you by any means fat?

        I have high prolactin level (450) after the 3 BEP chemotherapy.

        Normal range is almost zero for male, normal range for female is around 73-371

        Should I concern?
