Does domperidone have to be taken 3x a day rather than in one larger daily dose?


The script my OB called in for domperidone just said "90mg a day" so the pharmacist made up 90mg capsules.

I don't have an answer to your question but I take 20mg 4x a day.

That's a really big increase, how long were you taking dom before you saw that much of a difference?

It gradually increased over about a week and a half.

I take 80mg per day in 8 pills (10mg ea). I was told by my dr to take 2 4 times a day, but I take them 1 at a time over the course of the day. I think 90mg at once might be too much at once, but may be wrong. I went from 2-4oz per day to an avg of 10-14oz per day in about 1-2 wks. I am not an EP'er though. I still nurse but am pumping for occasional bottles and freezer.

Well since they're capsules I can't cut them I'm just trying the 90mg once a day.

Does it typically work for AVP as well or only LVP?

Did you ask your doctor to prescribe it to you or do you buy it online? I noticed that it is quite expensive online but I am not sure if it is cheaper if your doctor prescribed it to you and you have to get it from here.
I have low milk supply and I tried fenugreek but its making my LO all fussy and gassy. I wanted to feed her with just BM until her first year and i am considering buying domperidone if it means doubling up my supply. I am only producing 16-20 oz a day and that's with the power pumping and everything. I pump 10 to 12 times daily and I am seriously getting frustrated because it seems like my supply only increased by 1 oz total a day since I started fenugreek and powerpumping more than 2 weeks ago.
