The data presented in this paper describe supplementary material to the article entitled “Pharmacological treatment strategies for lowering prolactin in people with a psychotic disorder and hyperprolactinaemia: a systematic review and meta-analysis” . Although raw data was published on the original article, additional raw data has been included in the current paper (new tables with socio-demographic and clinical characteristics of the samples of the studies included in the systematic review). Supplementary data also include the PICO scheme of the systematic review, PRISMA checklist, flow diagram, an explanation of the method for obtaining prolactin concentrations from published figures when data was only available in figures, list of the selected studies, risk of bias summary of all five randomized clinical trials evaluating the addition of aripiprazole for lowering prolactin (included in the meta-analysis in the original article). Extra analyses, figures and R code of the meta-analysis have been also included. Meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials (RCTs) considering aripiprazole addition for lowering prolactin in people with a psychotic disorder and hyperprolactinaemia were conducted with two softwares: 1) R and the metaphor package (for the meta-analysis of the primary outcome [prolactin reduction]); 2) MedCalc version 18.11 (for the meta-analysis of the secondary outcome [withdrawal rates]). Data from a sensitivity analysis (repeating the meta-analysis with only placebo-controlled RCTs) has been also included in the current article.
