User avatar Hello,
Sometimes there are disorders of the pituitary gland which cause an increase in the prolactin hormone. It can be a common, benign tumor. At any rate, it's best to have it checked out. Medications can sometimes have this side effect and if there's a chance you are pregnant, that sometimes brings it on. You will want to find out the exact cause.

Best wishes.
