    They recommend using it for at least 8 weeks before deciding if it works or not for you. If it does work, there is a 10 week weaning process... So you'd want to order at least a 20 week supply at the max dose of 90mg a day (9 pills a day)... My math was 1260 pills.

    It really depends on how long you want to take it...

    Good luck!

    If you don't want to invest the money for 1200 pills for something that may or may not help, you could start out by ordering enough for 3 pills a day for 4 - 6 weeks. That would put you at 90 - 135 pills.

    I have been taking 3 pills a day for about 7 months now. It has made the difference between needing to suppliment versus not needing to suppliment (roughly 1.5 ounces per pumping session increased to 2-3 ounces). I did notice the effects within 3-4 days of taking the domperidone.
