    Default Domperidone came today! Yay!

    Hi ladies! I'm so excited right now! Thanks to Shanda, I got some domperidone (about 1 month's worth using Dr. Newmans highest dosing) and it arrived today! It came early enough that I can start to take it right away.... Though I'm not sure if I should start today or wait until tomorrow... Maybe waiting until tomorrow to take it first thing in the morning is better? I'm going to start out with 30mg a day since I've heard that can work just as well. I'd love for this to last longer than 1 month!

    Hmm... Maybe I should just start it up today? Thoughts anyone?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I'm going to start it tomorrow though, after looking at the instructions. It's to be taken 90 min after a meal and given that it's already 2:30pm, I'd never get in 3 doses!

    Thanks!

    Just disregard the info about taking it 90 minutes before/after food. That's for people with gut problems. Just take it 3 times a day and I bet 24 hours later you'll start feeding all full and achy!

    JoyBells - I got the info on domperidone dosing here... http://bfar.org/domperidone.shtml

    This site is using the directions for lactating mothers... The maximum absorbtion rate is higher when taken 90 min after meals.

    Thanks ladies! Tomorrow is D-Day!

    Oh thanks! I wonder why I was told not to worry about that then! I'll remember that when I start taking it again.
