    Default Domperidone - where do I get this now?

    Here's the deal:
    LO is 8 months old and things were going great. I pump 3x's/day while at work and supply went from the 4 oz I used to get per session now down to 1-2. Freezer stash isn't going to last much longer. I need help!!!

    Currently taking/doing:
    Pumping with Symphony 3xs a day while I work 8 hours. Nurse right before I leave and right when I get home. Daycare is only 5 min away from home.
    Oatmeal - 1 bowl twice a day (and maybe a cookie or 2).
    More Milk Plus - Caplets 3x's a day as directed including the instructions about waiting 20 min before and after to drink anything.
    Mother's Milk Tea - 3-4 cups per day
    Water - 64 oz a day
    Compressions - can sometimes get a second let down
    Smelling clothing he wore the night before
    Viewing pictures of him while I pump
    Multi-Vitamin
    CoSleeping
    Nursing whenever we are together. Even took a nursing vacation last weekend and NO CHANGE

    How do I get Domperidone? I asked my Dr for a Rx and he gave me Reglan. And the Reglan dose he gave me was only 5mg 2x's a day....and only 30 tabs and no refills and I have a history of depression...and I told his nurse this and her response was, well that is what he has written, do you want me to call it in for you?

    I took Domperidone with my first son, started at about 9 months to make it to a year of pumping, and his old practice was able to supply it to their patients but now I guess the new place can't (or won't). I don't live close to Canada. How can I get this medication and ensure it is safe and isn't kept at the border by customs?

    Thanks for the help!

    I get mine from www.inhousepharmacy.com
    My sister & cousin also used this place as well. None of us had any problems. It does take 2 to 3 weeks to get it though.
    It has helped with my supply. I went from pumping 10 oz a day to 12 oz a day. Not a huge increase, but at least I haven't had to increase her formula supplement! In fact, I've cut it out completely on the weekends. Her weight gain is also better.

    I got mine in 10 days. I took reglan 10mg 2x/day to hold me over. I wasn't any more irritable than normal Even after 3 days, I've noticed a huge difference. I'm very happy with the results. I ordered 300 tablets for about $50. This should be enough to get me to at least a year and then be able to relax some as I won't pump at daycare.

    Good luck! You're certainly doing everything right! PM me if you have any questions.

    Thanks! I did get it at In House and it took 2 weeks but not stopped at customs! YAY!

    And working like a charm. I am back to my old pumping self. Woo hoo. Now I have no doubts I will make it to a year (and maybe more!)

    I'm so glad for you, Sarah! Isn't it such a great feeling to see that milk pouring into the pump bottles???
