Take this information to your GI doctor if you feel that Domperidone is a medication you want to try for your gastroparesis. I will also add the link to our Links tab.

How To Obtain Domperidone

On June 7, 2004, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned compounding pharmacies and firms that supply domperidone for use in compounding that it is illegal to compound domperidone and issued an import alert advising FDA field personnel that they may detain shipments of finished drug products and bulk ingredients containing domperidone.

These actions were the result of the Agency's concern about the potential public health risks associated with the use of domperidone by women who were breastfeeding.

Although FDA has determined that domperidone should not be compounded or used to enhance breast milk production in lactating women, there are some patients with severe gastrointestinal disorders, such as severe gastroparesis or severe GI motility disorders that are refractory to standard therapy, who may benefit from the drug and in whom the drug’s benefits outweigh its risks.

FDA encourages physicians who would like to prescribe domperidone for their patients with severe gastrointestinal disorders that are refractory to standard therapy to open an Investigational New Drug Application (IND). An IND is a request for FDA authorization to administer an investigational drug to humans. Such authorization would allow the importation, interstate shipment, and administration of the drug even though it is not approved for sale in the U.S.

For questions relating to domperidone INDs contact the Division of Drug Information, toll free at (800) INFO-FDA or (301) 796-3400.

{{Your doctor can find out how to prescribe domperidome for you and you can then order it through pharmacies in Canada. There are a few of us who can recommend the one we use.}}

Zelnorm, the brand name for Tegaserod, was one of the medications used for GP and other causes. Not sure if it can be still obtained in the US.

A Wikipedia article on Domperidone, a controversial GP medication. As in all Wikipedia articles, sometimes not all the information is there, but there are links at the bottom of the articles that are worth checking out. This article could be considered a good starting point.

The two most commonly prescribed antibiotics that are use to treat GP (because the side effects of the antibiotics can sometimes get the stomach to either start or complete the digestive process), are Erythromycin and Azithromycin. Here is information about both and how they are different.
