    Default Medication to induce?

    I emailed my Dr. To see if they would prescribe something to help relactation. He said that "reglan" is common for moms to ask for but has never seen success with it. Anyone have luck with prescription medication to relactate or induce lactation? Which medication?

    Some moms have used it, but more moms seem to use domperidone.

    If you're in the US, be aware that obtaining Domperidone may be problematic. It is not FDA-approved, though it is commonly used in the EU and Canada. As far as I know, the only way to legally obtain Domperidone in the US is through a compounding pharmacy.

    I used Reglan and had no side-effects from it other than increased milk supply.
