Hi, I'm a third year medical student with a bachelor's degree in
biochemistry and pharmacology. I hope this can help.

Prolactin is controlled by the neurotransmitter dopamine. When the
levels of dopamine being sent to the anterior pituitary (one of the
key brain structures that control your body's hormone levels) are
high, prolactin release is blocked. Therefore, when dopamine levels
decrease, prolactin increases.
The most important drugs that decrease dopamine levels are the
anti-psychotic medications. These include haloperidol, clozipine,
olanzipine, risperidone, phenothiazines, butyrophenones,
metoclopramide, sulpiride, and domperidone. Other medications that

the antihypertensive drugs methyldopa and reserpine.
The calcium channel blocker verapamil and estrogens also increase prolactin levels.

The only natural products that would help increase prolactin levels
are ones that would contain natural estrogens. Soy and yam roots are
the only natural products that I know of that contain significant
amounts of estrogens.
