I have a pituitary tumor called a prolactinoma, I am also breastfeeding. I desperately want to get pregnant without going back on Dostinex which I had to take to get pregnant with dd. I am trying to find a natural/herbal remedy but can't find any good information for herbs to lower prolactin levels. I have found some info on Vitex, but it seems that you must take like 20mg a day and no more for it to have any effect, and I can't find a 20mg dose. I am also looking for other herbs that might help.

Does anyone know of any herbal/natural products that can lower prolactin levels?

Hi Lisa,
I went to the heath food store today and I was only able to get a list of vitamins herbs, and minerals but I was not able to read about it.

For Vitamins: B Complex and E

Minerals: Bromine Iodine, Manganese Phoshorus,Silicon Sulphur

Herbs: Licorice Root, Ginger, Cayenne, and Golden Seal

I hope that this at least gets you started.

Take care
