    I just ordered it from www.inhousepharmacy.com without a perscription. I haven't got it yet though they said 7-12 days, it's been just about 7.

    My midwife mentioned today that Domperidone is not available in the US. You have to go to Mexico to get it? I think they have it in Canada though. I may be trying it if the fenugreek doesn't start kicking in.

    Here's some info I found online:

    Since Domperidone has never been licensed for sale in the United States, one might think it would be unavailable for purchase legally. However, whether or not Domperidone is available for purchase legally, would seem to depend on who you are and who you know! Contrary to popular opinion, Domperidone is legal for purchase in the United States through online sales and Compounding Pharmacies, as long as you have a valid prescription. Getting the prescription is the problem

    In 2004, the United States Federal Drug and Food Administration, (FDA), issued a letter warning that purchase of Domperidone was illegal through both Online and Compounding Pharmacies. However in 2006, the FDA rescinded that letter, and posted guidelines for issuing prescriptions for Domperidone.

    In layman's terms, the FDA guidelines basically state: if Acid Reflux Disease is uncontrollable by FDA approved medications, a doctor may issue a valid prescription for Domperidone. And with proper paper work, Domperidone may be legally purchased through Online and Compounding Pharmacies. However, the FDA guidelines do not authorize prescriptions for use of Domperidone as a galactagogue.

    To legally obtain a prescription for Domperidone in the United States, you must have Acid Reflux Disease, and your doctor must agree Domperidone is the best treatment for that disease. As with many things in life, it would seem getting a prescription for Domperidone would depend on who you are and who you know!

    Legal or not, most women in the United States who use Domperidone as a galactagogue, simply order it online without a prescription. As long as the orders are small, there have been few problems. Other than an occasional confiscation at the port of entry, most shipments have arrived without incident.

    Funny you posted this, I was just researching this today!!

    http://www.breastfeedingonline.com/d...onewhere.shtml

    Some compounding pharmacies here have it, but I can't get my doc to write a script. If your doc will give you one, just order online from Canada.

    I'm going to order online. Places in the Pacific don't require prescriptions.

    Brandi, Inhouse was the site I was thinking I'd use. Can you tell me how long it ends up taking?
