Can Klonopin or Wellbutrin (bupropion) cause high prolactin levels?

Can Klonopin or Wellbutrin (bupropion) cause high prolactin levels?

Why would 10mg celexa (citalopram) make your blood serotonin level low? When i wasn't on celexa (citalopram) my serotonin level was high?

CSF correlation?: CSF serotonin levels may not correlate with blood levels, and some labs are very unreliable also. Celexa (citalopram) inhibits the reuptake of serotonin back into pre-synaptic neurons -- increasing synaptic amounts. This is one of the ways Celexa (citalopram) works in depression. Because of the blood-brain barrier your CSF level may be higher than blood level. CSF levels are obtainable by lumbar puncture only. ...Read more
