Reglan for milk supply?

has anyone ever taken Reglan for milk supply? Do you think the risk of depression is worth taking it? With my other two kids I had bad PPD and I think I may have even had PTSD after the birth of my 8 year old. So far with this one I've been ok, mostly just exhausted. So I'm not sure whether I should risk taking the reglan.

I talked to my doctor about domperidone too, he said he doesn't care which I take as long as I only take them for 2 weeks and stop (he knows its important for me to bf as long as possible even if I have to supplement with formula). The domperidone can only be ordered online though, I'm not keen on taking a drug that can only be ordered online from another country especially when my baby is going to be affected. The reglan is covered by my insurance too so it will be cheaper.

Thanks

A friend of mine took domperidone for her milk supply. Her midwife prescribed it for her and it worked well for her.

I don't know about the reglan.
