supply issues, anyone used metoclopramide?

Hey everyone,
My son and I have been on an uphill battle, or so it seems, to get breastfeeding running smoothly. First we had tongue tie issues and now slow weight gain with continuous eating. I have been working with a LC for the past 2.5 weeks trying to increase my supply after the pedi expressed concern over slow weight gain coupled with how long my son is at the breast (8 lb 8 oz at 2 weeks and 8 lb 11 oz at 1 month). The LC believes our latch is fine, but since I have never felt full (hard to with continuous nursing, but even times when he does nap I have never felt full) she thinks my supply is low. I have been following her rec (supplements, pumping when possible, etc), but it isn't getting much better. My OB said he has had success prescribing metoclopramide in the past...has anyone used with success? thanks..lori

I have used domperidone with great success -- and without the nasty side effects of Reglan.

Domperidone by Dr. Jack Newman (link on that page to another page of info)

I suffered from low supply but beat it!! You can too! I'm typing one handed so this post is only 1/8 of what I want to write. PM me w/questions.
