    Since Domperidone isn't legal in the US, I'm not comfortable with having sources posted publicly. If you have information for s.p, please send her a PM.

    With respect, LLLKaren, it is not quite accurate to say that it is illegal in the US. It is possible to legally obtain a prescription for it, and obtain it legally from a compounding pharmacist. I went this route, for example. There aren't very many doctors who will prescribe it, but some will. And it is commonly prescribed and used in other countries.

    I certainly understand and respect your wishes about posting potentially quasi-legal or illegal ways to obtain it, which are out there...

    just to piggyback that, even if you obtain w/o a script, it is not illegal as it is not a controlled substance. dr. newman has all the info on his site.

    From the FDA:
    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.
    ...all drug products containing domperidone (whether compounded or not) violate the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) because they are unapproved new drugs and misbranded. In addition, distribution within the U.S., or importation of domperidone-containing products, violates the law.
    I just want to be on the safe side. Thanks for understanding.

    Hmm. The legalities of this are beyond my understanding. I am fairly confident that what I did was legal, but I am no expert, and I can certainly understand your concern...

    I know that I read somewhere that Domperidone is being review for FDA approval. This smells to me like American drug company big business....can't get it here, we don't want someone else making money when you get it somewhere else....

    I totally gotcha Karen!

    My apologies for bringing it up so nonchalantly in OP's other thread. It's used commonly here in Canada for supply issues, and Jack Newman has been known to email scripts for it. I didn't realize the issue was so touchy South of the border

    So... does anyone know of doctors who might prescribe it ? I will try to get it from them. I am not comfortable ordering and taking meds from the internet. Please PM me if its not too much trouble. Its such a battle daily to get anything into her. I think she is not getting much at all... she has dropped from 75th percentile to 50th percentile, ie crossing growth curve lines or something.
    thankyou
