Price depends on your area. I got a month's supply for around $120. That is with taking 4x per day..so 80 mg.

Motillium is not the same exactly as compounded dom. If you get compounded domperidone, you can ask for them to put acidophilus in with it. Then it will be dom + acidophilus. That's it. Motillium has other ingredients to prolong it's shelf life.

There is usually a compounding pharmacies anywhere near major cancer treatment centers as well as fertility treatment centers.

Has anybody had luck with their insurance co paying for it if they have a prescription? Or do you always have to pay out of pocket and from out of the USA?

i just recently shifted from dopergin to motilium. I was prescribed dopergin as my little baby was born but the doctor fund aftersome weeks that it was not enough boosting the production of milk.
Indeed, that worked in a marvellous way.
Would anyone just tell me of the different side eefects that are caused there?

From what I hear, the main "side effect" of motilium is what is usually prescribed for, faster stomach emptying. I was more hungry all the time when I was on a higher dose, and also gained some weight. Some people get a bit of headache while on higher dosages too. Other than that I think it's pretty well tolerated.

Glad to hear it worked for you to boost your milk

I have to say I used dpd as a BFAR mom with my dd, and it worked wonders! I'm ttc #4 now and plan to use it again!

If I order it online and it is confiscated by the FDA at the border will I be out the money I spent? I anticipate needing a supply in May 07 so should I try and get it ordered now?

From what I hear, if your order gets confiscated, you get a letter from the FDA. You then call or email InHouse pharmacy and somehow send them the confiscation letter. The original package gets returned to InHouse pharmacy, and they refund your money. In the mean time, you have to order again. So you are out (temporarily) for two orders, but you get your money back eventually.

If you are worried, you might go ahead and order at least 2-3 months early, to give time for at least one confiscation. I think it's relatively rare to be confiscated but still when it happens.

Here's their email if you want to inquire directly:

Does anyone know anything about this online pharmacy: http://healthcarepharma.com/store/in...f980637f3a69cf. I was told it had the cheapest prices around.

Is anyone concerned about the safety of drugs from non-US online pharmacies? I probably wouldn't be concerned from a Canadian/UK/Australian/NZ pharmacy, but some others make me a bit leery. Did yours come in a bottle of blister pack?

I read that Customs is no longer seizing drugs at the border.

Good news about customs.

My domperidone comes in a box, with the pills inside in a blister pack.

I honestly don't know how to respond about the safety question. I was also very leery, and all I can say is that everything's been OK with me and lots of other people I've "met" on the internet
