Does TRH promote prolactin secretion?

Found my own answer. TRH does stimulate prolactin release and hyperprolactinemia can occur in primary hypothyroidism (Mosby).

TRH also stimulates TSH, and if your TSH is not working you will create more TRH that will also stimulate prolactine so the Hyperprolactinemia is because of TRH trying to make THS to work but because TSH is not working you get hipothyroidism
