: : : I have had gastroparesis since 1993. I have been on Propulsid since the middle of 1993 and it has worked well for my motility. My GI doctor would like me to try domperidone/motilium to replace the Propulsid. Would like to hear pro/con of this medication. Thanks.

: : Hi!
: : My doctor said I'd have to travel to Canada to get domperidone for my gastroparesis. I live in NH, so I am not happy about this! Do you know when it will be available in the states? Thanks. Kim

: Kim - No I do not know when it will be available in the US. When I was diagnosed back in 1993 with gastroparesis domperidone was one of the medicines the doctors had mentioned. It has not passed FDA approval yet. I have heard that it is in phase II clinical trials but I do not know that for a fact. Since it does not appear to meet the guidelines for this forum to include commercial (ie. business) names I will not post it. My email address is bacsul@hal-pc.org. If you provide info on how to get the info to you I will send the location my doctor's office recommended I purchase it from in Canada. They have a 1-800 number to call. What they require follows:
: 1) Full name and social security number (I never like providing this, but in this case I will have to)
: 2) mailing address
: 3) phone number with area code at home and/or work
: 4) a visa or mastercard number for payment

: I have not checked on pricing at this time.
: Information provided in the note obtained from my doctor contains the following - From our previous experience U.S. Customs will allow import of medication for personal use as long as an American physician prescribes the medication and a copy of the American perscription accompanies the medication. All medication is sent by federal express.

: Note: I have observed on several FDA web pages that note what perscriptions have been confiscated. This pharmacy has had a few confiscated.
: Sorry this response was so long and I was not able to provide pharmacy name(s) in this post.


Hi!

I just read your postings. I have the name of a reliable canadian source that provides U.S patients domperidone on prescription. You can fax/send an Rx and pay by Visa/Moneyorder/Cheque.
I had tried another place from Mexico but they were not the most reliable...unfortunately.
I went without domperidone for a while before my doctor recommend this Canadian place. I never had a problem with my supply so far...but customs can be tricky at times...I prefer to get my medicine through snail mail 7-10days, it seems to help get passed the radar at customs.
Email me if you'd like more info. michael_valence@hotmail.com
