Motilium (Domperidone) Medication Information

Uses

Motilium can be prescribed for the short-term treatment of diabetic gastroparesis or nausea and vomiting that’s not treatable with other medications.

Diabetic gastroparesis is a long-term complication of diabetes where the gastrointestinal (GI) nerves become damaged from high levels of blood sugar. Motilium can be prescribed once you have gotten underlying diabetes under control with diet, exercise, and medication.

Domperidone works by blocking dopamine receptors in the GI tract. Dopamine receptors are involved in the contraction of muscles in the stomach and intestines. By blocking these receptors, Motilium improves the movement of food through the GI tract.

Domperidone is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use or sale in the United States. However, it can be obtained by certain pharmacies and physicians who have completed the required paperwork for an expanded access Investigational New Drug application (IND).

Dosage

The usual dose is 10 mg by mouth up to three times daily before meals. Take Motilium 15-30 minutes before meals.

The maximum dose of Motilium is 30 mg per day.

For acute nausea and vomiting, Motilium should be used for a maximum of one week.

For diabetic gastroparesis, Domperidone should not be used for longer than four weeks.
