Hi, my husband just tested 268 for Prolactin and the only medication he takes is Zyrtec, which he has been taking daily for years. I suspect that the Zyrtec could be causing this, but see that there is a very small percentage of people who have reported this to the FDA. I'd love to hear anyone's stories confirming this fact. He is going to stop taking the Zyrtec and be tested again in 3 or 4 days. Any comments about your experiences would be appreciated. Thanks, Cathy
