Question for those who have used domperidone

How long did it start to work? Today was my 4th full day and I have yet to see any increase in my supply. I'm taking the amount recommended on the inhousepharmacy website - 2 tabs 4 times a day. I'm worried that it's not going to work. I only have half of a full supply right now... I need to make more milk!!!

Re: Question for those who have used domperidone

If I remember right(it's been a few yrs) it was 5-7 days before I noticed a difference. I used it to bring my milk back in and once it started wroking I had more milk then I knew what to do with. Hope it starts working for you soon!

Oh good, thanks, that's what I'm hoping will happen. I am relactating. I started with only a few drops each pumping session... that was 5 wks ago and now I'm up to 2 oz per pumping session. It has been a very very slow progression. I would love to get up to 6 oz each time!

I take 3 tabs 3 times a day and noticed an increase almost right away but I wasn't relactating. I read that it can take up to two weeks to notice a significant increase in some mamas.

I started off taking 3 tablets 3 times a day and within a couple days I was totally engorged and leaking. I would give it at least a week to start seeing results.

Re: Question for those who have used domperidone

Thanks mamas. I'm going to change and start taking 3 three times a day. That will be easier to remember anyway and it will be one more each day than what I'm taking now. Then when I start to see an increase, maybe I'll go back to 8 a day if I can.
Thanks again!

Re: Question for those who have used domperidone

It did not really work very well for me at all and that was in combination with pumping, the SNS, skin to skin, herbs, etc. I was not re-lactating, I just had a very low supply. Just my 2 cents.

That would make me so sad. I have very high hopes for this stuff. How much were you taking? How long did you use it?

Re: Question for those who have used domperidone

My son was 7mths old when I started pumping. I pumped every 2hrs and twice at night. Once on the domperidone I could pump around 6 oz at a time. It got to the point where I had to cut back because I had a TON of milk in the freezer,plus pumped more then he was using in a day. I did find that I had to keep taking it though,but it was well worth it

Re: Question for those who have used domperidone

within 2 days I was making tons more milk and I am on 12 a day (3 pills 4x a day) I went from no supply to having 150+ spare oz in my freezer within 1 month.

I think you need more.....and I've heard though once you are on it....you can never really get off it. You can cut back (which I may have too since I make too much milk now) but once you stop so does your supply.

good luck though.
