Common: It has increased your prolactin level. A common side effect of first generation anti-psychotic medications. These will stop with stopping of medication.

Hyperprolactinaemia: Agree with earlier response. Treatment of hyperprolactinaemia should restore periods and stop lactation. This can be done by stopping medication or through other methods. Please see excellent site: http://www.sussexpartnership.nhs.uk/sites/default/files/documents/hyperprolactinaemia_glines_-_final_-_0414.pdf * take care.
