    Default question about taking reglan

    has anyone ever taken reglan just once a day instead of taking it for 3 weeks & tapering off like my doctor prescribed? the lactation consultant said she has heard of women taking one a day to help maintain supply. just wondering if anyone else has done this?

    I've never heard of this but see no reason why it would be harmful.

    so....would you just start out taking 1/day or would you ramp up for the 2/3 wk period & then taper down to 1/day?

    I take a pill a day...I decreased gradually to that level...I started at 4 a day. I decreased my dosage by one pill per week till I was at the one a day mark. It seems to be helping my supply. I stopped once and saw a dip so I started taking it again.

    My doc says that it is fine to take it for a longer peroiod of time...but you may want to check with yours.

    Just be sure you know all the risks etc, it has been known to cause problems w/ agitation and depression etc. Check out www.mobimotherhood.com for other galactogogue options.
