Paliperidone(invega) prolactin dose dependent or not?

Is Paliperidone(invega) prolactin elevation dose dependent or not ?

Makes sense if it is.

Yes its dose dependant like risperidone

Yes paliperodone is the active metabolite of risperidone which is dose dependent on prolactin elevation. Increased dopamine causes prolactin to decrease. Since most antipsychotics reduce dopamine, prolactin increases.
