Gastroparesis & Domperidone

I have Gastroparesis and have been taking Reglan and Zithromycin along with Phenergan and Zofran as needed for nausea. The Reglan has not been working for me and rather than increase my dose and risk unwanted side effects, I am going to try Domperidone.

Does anyone have experience with Domperidone for Gastroparesis? Did it help? What were the side effects?

Thanks in advance!!

I've had great luck with Domperidone. I had no observable side effects. SO much better than awful Reglan.

Re: Gastroparesis & Domperidone

Erik,
What dose are you taking & how long did it take before you began seeing results?
I've been taking 10 mg 3 times a day for about a week but haven't really been able to tell if it's working yet.

Thanks so much for your reply.

I started with 10mg 3 times daily, it took about a week to work. after a month I weened it down to 10 mg once daily and it works still.
