No, I don't think so.

For hyperprolactinoma I'd ask for a diagnostic test such as ultrasound.
But, out of curiousity, I wouldn't shy away from experimenting with vitamin E for a few days, weeks, or months.
I wouldn't take any advice from //en.wikipedia.org -- they've got too many FEAR messages.
However, I have faith in the book "Life Extension" by Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw. On page 747
the authors say Kelly Freas, the artist with the arthritic hands, took 10,000 IU of vitamin E along with
20,000 IU of vitamin A, per day. And that he was on that regimen for at least 8-10 months.

I would start looking for a better doctor.
A) because, if I had hyperprolactinoma and low free testosteron, I would work on those conditions/disorders.
And B) because a better doctor would initiate a few highly important diagnostic tests, instead of simply
"letting you try" one of those meds.
And C) because if it was Focalin, and nothing but Focalin, that tied to my current doctor, I wouldn't
stick with that doctor -- because there are many excellent OTC supplements for ADHD.
> and with my mildly elevated hematocrit
To my profile I'd add the relevant hematocrit numbers.
I hope this helps.
Again, excellent advice. Very sound. I have tried virtually all OTC supplements you can possibly name that are not combo mixes of ingredients. Ashwagandha, CBD, Omega 3, 3/6/9 mix, CoQ10, B12, B6, B-Vitamin Combo, handful of multivitamins I’ve tried, Beta-Alanine, Tyrosine, NALT, Ginseng, Melatonin, N-Acetyl-L-Carbitine, etc.
I know all that stuff. Nothing new. But many are helpful for sure. I feel like I am coming off as being rude or ignorant, but I am simply trying to display how much I have tried and how hard I have worked over the past 13 years to improve my health, social health, testosterone, reduce Rx med needs, etc.
I’ve tried 36 psychiatric medications over the course of 8 years. Did time in some hospital wards. I’ve had 9 psychotherapists and 7 psychiatrists. I’ve done online counseling and group-based talk-therapy and exposure + response therapy for trauma from sexual abuse I previously experienced.
