Have you taken domperidone? Are you currently taking it to increase your supply? If so, how long did you/ do you plan to take it?<br><br>
I'm just wondering what's a normal length of time to take it. Can I take it as long as I bf my dd?

I took Domperidone for about 2-3 months. My supply dropped after I stopped pumping once per day and DD started sleeping through (around 3 months). I tried to stop taking it around 4.5 months but again my supply couldn't handle it. I eventually stopped around 6.5 months and things have been fine since. I just make sure I nurse on both sides each time now whereas b/f I was only doing one side at a time.<br><br>
According to the lactation consultant and doctor I saw, you can take it as long as you are nursing if you need to.<br><br>
Good luck! I hope it helps you.
