    Default Domperidone and weight gain

    I took dom in order to increase my supply and it worked really well (YAY!) I have just weaned off of it and my baby is doing well but I realized that I gained close to 20 lbs while taking it.

    Did anyone else have this issue? Did you lose the weight when you went off?

    Yes! See this thread that I started too! (called the same thing )

    I have now lost almost all of the weight. I gained almost 25 lbs. I have been off of it almost 8 weeks now I think.

    Someone told me they read that it empties your stomach contents faster and therefore makes you hungrier faster. I don't know if it's that or just the high levels of prolactin.

    Congrats on getting your supply established and successfully weaning off of Dom.
