Hyperprolactinemia is a frequent side-effect in the use of atypical antipsychotics. The propensity to induce hyperprolactinemia is highly substance dependent and hyperprolactinemia is not always associated with clinical side-effects. We report a case in which hyperprolactinemia and amenorrhea under the treatment with olanzapine gets normalized after the addition of aripiprazole.
