No good data: Our science (MD) has not studied this product or it's active ingredients. It may have some data on efficacy, but typically we do not prescribe such medications. It is a natural process, and is limited by a neuro-humoral pathway involving prolactin, etc. Relaxed state of mind and fluids in plenty help.
