    Evening. You are having a condition called galactorrhea which is usually due to a high level of an hormone called prolactin in your blood. You will need to have a hormonal assay done first to make the diagnosis after this is done then a drug will be prescribed to you to suppress the level of this hormone. Cheers

    Unfortunately, you can't procure the drug without a doctor's prescription. Also, it's necessary to know what is the cause of this high prolactin. It could be from use of drugs such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, birth control pills, use of mariana, chronic kidney disease and pituitary tumor are some of the causes. So you still need to run some investigations to know what could be causing yours before the drugs will be prescribed. Cheers
