Causes Of Hyperprolactinemia
Sometines: There are two medications that can lower prolactin levels, often to normal, in patients with prolactinomas- these are bromocryptine and cabergoline. In some cases if the prolactin has been persistently normal on the medication, it will remain normal after the medication is stopped. This should only be done under the supervision of an experienced endocrinologist. ...Read more

This can be normal during puberty, related to hormone imbalances, or certain drugs/medications. Hyperprolactinemia is high levels of the hormone prolactin in the blood, this can affect breast development. ...Read more
Probably not: You're referring to chaste tree supplements (vitex agnus castus). In a small german study vitex capsules were thought to help "latent hyperprolactinemia" in women with normal prolactin levels. The hormone test used in the study is not used in clinical practice. If you have hyperprolactinemia see a reproductive endocrinology md even if not trying to conceive; it may be due to a non-cancerous tumor. ...Read more
Maybe: If elevated prolactin levels are caused by a pituitary tumor labeled as a macro adenoma which is greater than 1 cm in size, then surgery is recommended for treatment which can be potentially permanent.
