Domperidone Usage

When are you supposed to take it: before you pump? after you pump? does it matter? I've been on it a little while mostly taking it after I pump. Lately I've noticed my supply has kind of leveled off. What's the maximum dosage you should take in one day?

For those who have stopped taking it, did you notice a dramatic decrease in your supply? I have always been a LVP and have tried everything under the sun to boost it. Fenugreek did not work for me, nor did the mother's milk teas. Domperidone was about the only thing that worked, and even then it wasn't that dramatic.

I recently ordered the milkmakers cookies off the internet (yummy!!) and noticed a bit of an increase in supply when I ate one not too long before I pumped, which led me to thinking about when I should use domperidone.

I'd appreciate hearing others advice/stories/experiences. Thanks!

Hi.. if your a LVP say only 20 oz a day.. then most likely you will need to stay on it until you are done pumping completly..

I take 80mg per day. I take 8 10mg pills over the course of the day. One dr said I should take 2 at certain times a day, another said as long as I take all 8 over the course of the day, I'm ok. I'm not an EPer but nurse and pump and I pump 3 times a day. Some times I take my pill before, sometimes after, sometimes no where near pumping. I havn't really noticed a difference in supply. I've been on it for 5 mths and understand that as long as I am nursing and/or pumping I will have to be taking it. In my 3 pumps a day (and baby is 7 mths) I make 10-15oz plus all nursing (I'm freezing my pumps). That is with the dom. Without it my daughter was losing weight at 8 wks.
