I am going to give it one last shot. She is still seeking the breast when the droplets surface {I don't wear a bra around the house, and still have droplets surface when she cries} but won't/can't latch, and I am only getting a few drops using my medela single... but now I am being blessed with a 2002 model PIS, gently used... so I'm going to try it and see if it works out. I'm considering dom, but I'm worried about what might happen if my shipment gets searched, and also about amount & frequency. I also have a dozen questions regarding length of usage, immediacy/term of results, and so on..

I get my dom at:<br><br><a href="http://www.globaldrug.tv/category.asp?CtgID=1003" target="_blank">http://www.globaldrug.tv/category.asp?CtgID=1003</a><br><br>
The worst thing that can happen if you shipment gets searched is it gets sent back to them company, and they send you a new shipment. This happens very rarely, per the ladies on my MOBI yahoo group (Mothers Overcoming Breastfeeding Issues) but does tend to happen more often between Thanksgiving and Christmas (who knows why). If you decide to take it all the time, be sure to order so you dont run out. Shipment *usually* takes 2 weeks but can take up to 6 weeks or more so plann accordingly. Nobody there has ever had credit card fraud or anything with this company so I feel pretty safe.<br><br>
Here's some information on dosage, immediacy of results, etc.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/prescript_galactagogue.html" target="_blank">http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/...actagogue.html</a><br><br>
Good luck with your lactating / relactating/ whatever your nursing goals are!

Hey MaryJaneLouise - I'm on MOBI as well! How cool!<br><br>
In answer to the Dom question, I've ordered from <a href="http://www.globaldrug.tv" target="_blank">www.globaldrug.tv</a> and also from <a href="http://www.healthcarepharma.com" target="_blank">www.healthcarepharma.com</a>. The prices at healthcarepharma are way way way cheaper, however the globaldrug stuff comes in it's original blistered and boxed packaging and the stuff from healthcarepharma comes in little plastic bag. I actually have NOT taken the stuff I got from healthcare pharma yet, but it's markings are exactly the same so I may take it one day and see if I notice anything different.<br><br>
As for dosage, I'm on 90 mg./day now (30 x 3). I'm thinking of going up to 100 mg./day (last ditch effort these last few months, kwim?). I've read.....um....I can't remember where... maybe Newman's site....that you can go as high as 120 or 150 mg/day.<br><br>
Drops are better than nothing! You go, mama!!!

I have ordered from healthcarepharma and also globaldrug.tv. Like the pp said healthcarepharma does come in little baggies, I have been taking dom from them for a few months now and can tell you it's the real thing, my supply rebounded within a few days of taking dom again. It's $5/100 pills with free shipping, globaldrug was about $140/800 pills with shipping if I remember correctly. I know of a handful of moms that order from healthcarepharma and have never had a problem.<br><br>

I'm on MOBI three -- love that listserv <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I got a whole bunch from globaldrug.tv - wish I knew there was a cheaper way to get it. I too am on 90 mg and am thinking of upping it to 120. I saw that on Dr. Newman's site as well.

I considered starting Domperidone. I would feel safe ordering it from only a couple places:<br><br>
1) A compounding pharmacy in the US (some will mail it to you, if there is not one local to you.) Here is a list:<br><a href="http://www.breastfeedingonline.com/domperidonewhere.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.breastfeedingonline.com/d...onewhere.shtml</a><br><br>
2) A reputable pharmacy in New Zealand.<br><br>
I contacted a US compounding pharmacy on the list and they said they would compound it (with a valid prescription) and mail it. I also contacted a local pharmacy and they would also make it. It isn't *that* hard to get it in the US - you'll just pay more. But I'd rather pay more than order something from one of these places that send you pills in baggies, etc. There is no guarantee of purity- it could be dangerous! Remember that these pharmacy companies are the same people who frequently send spam - and are not only suspicious in nature but can often be criminal. If you need a cheaper source - try New Zealand.

Lenore Goldfarb worked with Dr. Newman to develop the protocol for using dom. I suggest checking out her site (asklenore.com) for suggestions for how to use it. Also, she suggested Global to me when I asked her where she'd buy it. She's great at answering emails. For that matter, so is Dr. Newman! If you have any questions, go to the source, and they'll give you a hand.
