My LO is 4 months old. He doesn't take supplementation of ANY kind and I cannot pump.
First 2 months I had oversupply which due to his un-diagnosed tongue tie, reflux and ineffective transfer he brought down to low supply.
I started on 30mg/day of Dom when he was 2 months old and somehow kept plateauing and everytime that happened I added 10mg....
Now am on 160mg/day of Dom.
Have plateaued and I seem to have gotten drug-tolerant to it.
Am thinking of taking Reglan for 1.5 to 2 weeks to jumpstart my supply. I am aware of the risks.
I have heard that taking Reglan for even two weeks has long term supply benefits...versus Dom which needs to be taken continually. Is this true?
If I do take Reglan.. how do I switch? Stop Dom cold turkey and take Reglan for two weeks.. and then go back to Dom?
If I do go back to Dom because my Reglan supply isn't holding up should I take 160mg/day again or start over with 30mg/day?
Remember - my LO doesn't take any supplementation so I cannot experiment with low supply. It can get dangerous and go south very fast.
If I need a doc or LC or midwife to help me...who do I contact? My obgyn doesnt seem to have had experience with Dom. How can I find one who has experience with both and knows how they individually function and how they will interact with each other (atleast during the overlap time)?
Does anyone know one such person around the Seattle area? Does anyone know an answer to my Question? Apart from the side effects does anyone see an inherent detriment in my plan?
I am thinking if Reglan doesn't work I will go back to Dom and at least I should be no worse than I am today and if Reglan works ..then great.. I should have a good supply again and if it is true that you need to take Reglan only for 2 weeks for even 2 months or more of benefit then I will be drug free..
...even if I get 2 months benefit out of this I will be in a better place because I will start my LO on solids when he is 6 months old.
