I have just been reading about the causes of RA from an article provided by an NRAS medical expert available on the NRAS site. Interestingly the article finds a link between prolactin and raised levels of inflammation. I have been on seroxat which is an anti depressant but also used in other cases to raise prolactin in women who are finding breast feeding difficult. This drug has raised my prolactin levels and I have been advised by Gynaecology to reduce the seroxat.
I am now wondering if there is a link between seroxat and raised prolactin leading to higher suseptability of developing RA???? Prob too obscure to research but I wonder how many cases of people on seroxat develop RA - ?
