I am posting for a computer-less friend. Through a combination of work and sickness, she has had a hugely diminished milk supply for her 4-month-old, and is practically weaned. She really wants to try again to re-establish a supply. She (like me) is a poor pumper, and doesn't get much even though she tries religiously. She wants to try Domperidome. I found the link to buy it from globaldrug.com. If she buys it, what are the dosing directions???? The tablets look like they are 10mg. So, any advice or links???

In my city we have a compounding pharmacy (one of only a handful in California that will compound domperidone) and his prices are usually lower than others (and he gives free shipping on orders over $60.00). <a href="http://www.apothecaryoptions.com/domperidone.aspx" target="_blank">http://www.apothecaryoptions.com/domperidone.aspx</a> Might be worth checking into. He also compounds Newman's All-Purpose Nipple Ointment (both require an RX -- one disadvantage of getting them in the US).

I have just started taking it and this is what my doctor prescribed 2-10mg tablets 4x/day. She said the maximum dose is 4-10mg tablets 4x/day, but she did'nt want to start me on such a high dose because she did'nt want to overwelm me. I would tell your friend to start with a low dose and work up to a larger dose if needed. She also said it takes 48 hours to start working and really kicks in after a couple of weeks. I am not taking it as prescribed though, because she gave me a handout with information on taking it with Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle (which she fully supports). Her handout says to take 3-10mg tablets with 3 Fenugreek tablets and 3 Blessed Thistle tablets 3x/day. That is what I'm taking and it's working beautifully.
