    Abstract

    In five patients with inappropriate lactation and amenorrhoea or impotence brom-ergocryptine was found to suppress the lactation and to diminish the raised plasma prolactin levels. The responses to treatment suggest that there may be an inverse relationship between prolactin secretion and gonadotrophin secretion in man.
