Thread: Legality of domperidone in the US - please read

    Exclamation Legality of domperidone in the US - please read

    At this time, domperidone is not approved for use in the United States, and it can only be legally obtained in the US as part of an approved Investigational New Drug application (IND) for a gastrointestinal condition.

    No pharmacies in the US are authorized to compound domperidone.

    It is illegal to transport domperidone across US borders. For this reason, please DO NOT post links to online pharmacies or other sources for the drug.

    Thank you.

    Domperidone is an anti-nausea medication commonly used in many countries that is also used off-label for increasing milk production in mothers with low prolactin levels. Because it can affect heart rhythms in some people, and because using it with any one of many other common medications can increase the risk of serious side effects, domperidone should only be used under the supervision of a physician.
