Antipsychotics are well known to affect prolactin secretion, resulting in hyperprolactinemia and its consequent manifestations like amenorrhoea, galactorrhoea, gynaecomastia, etc. Levosulpiride is a novel antipsychotic drug with additional antidepressant, antiemetic and antidyspeptic actions. The authors report a case of levosulpiride-induced hyperprolactinemia, presenting as galactorrhoea in a female patient with dyspepsia at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal, in South India.
