I started Reglan 3 days ago. How long until I see an increase? And the dose recommended by my LC is different than the one prescribed by the OB. I don't want to over do it because of all of the side effects. What is the appropriate dose?

Your MD would likely consider different factors to determine the correct dose and it can vary between brand name and generic. 30-45mg per day is what would usually be taken by a breastfeeding mother but dosage might be different depending on your weight, medical history etc.

If you're questioning the different recommendation from your LC vs. your MD. Talk to your MD about it, they would likely have a good reason for

Thanks for the advice. I spoke to my LC about the difference in dosage and she had yet another fact sheet with a different recommendation! Right now I'm taking 3 a day and have noticed a slight increase. I will talk to my MD about it if I don't get the results I expect. Thanks again!
