Domperidone in Seattle area?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Anyone have recs for a practitioner that will prescribe domperidone for a compounding pharmacy in the Seattle area?  If not, anyone in the Seattle area using dom right now that would be willing to contact a friend of mine who is struggling to keep breastfeeding her FTT 3 week old son?  Maybe get her started with a few pills while she orders from New Zealand?  Is there a LLL group she should be attending that could help support her and provide her with resources?  Any info you can provide me for her would be greatly appreciated.

 

TIA!

I once visited an LC at Overlake Maternity (Eastside) and she said they knew of doctors who could prescribe Dom. Since I was already getting it from the inhouse pharm I didn't pay close attention but maybe you guys can call them and ask for names?

Totally off the topic of the meds...but has your friend had her baby checked for tongue tie? That can often be a big factor in FTT.

Thanks for the thought.  Yes, she has had him checked, though sometimes I wonder if some practitioners really know what to look for... she isn't having any pain with nursing, though, so that fit with the conclusion.  I did suggest she ask a different practitioner... not sure if she did yet.

Emily Healy is an LC who has a drop in clinic at the Center for Birth on Eastlake. I think she still does it. Anyway, she's experienced in an initial diagnosis of TT and works with a breastfeeding who does formal diagnosis and clipping (my daughter saw both and had her tongue clipped). They're both pretty helpful women.  I certainly can't say that's the issue, but if she had any doubts, she could go to the clinic. It's $10 and held on Thursday mornings.  I didn't have any pain though my DD had a posterior tie.

Are you talking about Dr. O'Hara?

Yep! My post should have said "works with a breastfeeding doctor"

Dr. Chenelle Roberts is a fabulous doc and midwife in green lake. Very gifted with babies and breastfeeding and can prescribe meds if needed.

Thank you all!  My friend ended up ordering from inhousepharmacy and so far the meds have been working wonderfully well.
