I used it at maximum dosage 160mg daily for 4 months. No side effects for myself or my baby.

Didn't thought of it as side effects but I do get massive hairloss as mentioned by Amanda. I lost a lot of weight too.

I've been using it for 2 months, since Molly was 3 months old, the stuff is magic! I have a low thyroid which means a lot less milk. This stuff made breastfeeding possible! I've had no side effects!

Anyone who needs domperidone? I have 100+ tablets of 30 mg each. I will give it for free. E-mail me directly at vanjbaquiran@aol.com.

Now that you mention the hair-loss, that does explain why I'm losing so much hair after finishing the Domperidone. Oh well. A small price to pay for the amazing benefits of having milk!

I took it once while we were traveling (my son was 17 months), to help with the motion sickness, and it was like I was nursing a newborn again. I actually got a little engorged!

I started taking this after I had a lactation consultant tell me my remaining placenta haulted my milk production. My little girl is now 6 months of age and I am still on the medication, still nursing fulltime. I have noticed some hair loss and dizziness. Other than those effects, I am in awe of this product and the increase of milk.

It stimulated my bowels so I went #2 more frequently, but no embarrassing issues or anything. I didn't renew my prescription since DD was already 12 months and we weaned down to twice a day, so stopping cold turkey wasn't such a smart idea. I was headachey and lightheaded for a couple weeks.

Yes, I used it. I was very helpful & no side effects. My supply increased by about 8 ounces, whoo hoo!

I used it for a couple of weeks to boost my milk supply. No side effects for me or baby! Totally restored my ability to breastfeed!

I was on them from when my boy was 4 months. It was fantastic & my milk came in so I could carry on breastfeeding. Only slight side effect I had was a bit of a dry mouth. That's it. Would highly recommend it if your milk is drying up :)

I used it when I wasn't nursing anymore because of my stomach. It caused me to not be able to dry up(I stopped breastfeeding a month before starting this), my period went away, and I started losing massive amounts of hair(more than after you have a baby). After I went off of it, all my symptoms went away within 3 weeks.

I had to use it for a while and did not notice any side effects in myself or baby. It worked wonders!

I have only used Domperidone once and there were no side effects. Wonderful boost to my low milk supply.
