Maternal Hyperprolactinemia

Low Risk for breastfeeding


Moderately safe. Probably compatible.
Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended.
Read the Comment.

Hyperprolactinemia by itself is not a contraindication while breastfeeding. There is experience about long-lasting breastfeeding from 8 to 33 months long without encountering any problem (even when patients have taken Bromocriptine).

If because an increased level of prolactinemia it would require medication, it is preferred to use Bromocriptine or Lisuride instead of Cabergoline because a lesser storage in blood, lesser passage to breast milk and poor absorption by the infant, even though, they are worst tolerated by the mother.
