Objective. A case of hyperprolactinemia during paroxetine treatment of depression is presented.
Case. A female patient with the past medical history of hormonal disorders was treated for depression with paroxetine. When hyperprolactinemia was recognised, bromocriptine was added.
Commentary. Concurrent treatment of both disorders had positive results. It is difficult to establish which of the disorders was primary. The patient 's hormonal state has probably increased the risk of hyperprolactinemia after paroxetine treatment.
