I was shocked to see this post.
I have done extensive Domperidone research and worked very closely with many of the most highly regarded lactation consultants (and MD's who work in lactation... not easy to find) in the greater Seattle area. The information I have found locally and online indicate that the most recent court ruling is that it is indeed legal for a US physician to prescibe Domperidone at a compouding pharmacy to a lactating woman. Many are just afraid to make a habit of it due to the FDA watch. They are concerned about losing their license if they are handing out scripts for it left and right.
I am fully aware that there are so many other galactologues and techniques that must be first tried and evaluated, but Domperidone is a last resort and an effective one at that for many women. Hale and the AAP do not object to its use in the nursing mother. The data that originally concerned the FDA were "heart troubles in cancer patients on high dose chemotherapy receiving high dose IV Domperidone". Not exactly a good comparison to its use in a lactating mother. There is no such thing as a safe medication, however Jack Newman has prescribed it to thousands of lactating mothers with nothing other headache type side effects.
Perhaps my post should be relocated to lactivism, but I was about to post about another issue in this forum and was disappointed to read this sticky as I do not feel it is accurate and should be updated.
