Abstract

The effect of acute and chronic administration of metoclopramide on serum prolactin levels in normal subjects was studied. Metoclopramide 10 mg i.v. induced a prompt rise in serum prolactin levels in all subjects. At 180 min the levels remained high. Prolactin levels were markedly elevated during a 5 day course of treatment with metoclopramide in six subjects. It is suggested that metoclopramide could be used in the functional exploration of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis.
