Re: Anyone with both GERD and Gastroparesis?

I am taking Domperidone, imported. It helps a LOT and it's so much less toxic than Reglan. I was on PPIs for a long time, they helped but they never seemed to help MUCH, probably because the motility issues weren't being addressed.
Let me know if you want to chat.
Jane, how do you get domperidone? Do you live in Canada?
