To the Editor: Aripiprazole is a second-generation antipsychotic medication that can be used in the management of major depression and other disorders that commonly arise during the postpartum period. Due to its partial agonistic action at the D2 receptor, aripiprazole has been used to treat hyperprolactinemia in patients on D2 antagonists. Higher doses of aripiprazole (15–30 mg) can decrease antipsychotic-induced hyperprolactinemia.
