Domperidene


#1
Does anyone have any info on this drug. I have beeb advised by my consultant that it may help my useless right hand which is limp and aches all the time when shaking. I am advised that the drs are 50/50 as to whether there are any advantages to taking this however the side effects terrify me. My Consultant says it is my choice and I might me the lucky one to see an improvement great!

I thought that domperidone was an anti-nausea drug.
Welcome , but I don't think that I can help you much. As with most stuff in life:
suck it and see.

good luck. mrs.t.

Hi Farmers wife,

I've not heard of Domperidone to be used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's. From what I understand Domperidone is used to treat nausea and vomiting caused by other drugs used to treat Parkinson's Disease.

Mrs T....you are right I was given that to stop my sickness............but on looking it up I was taken aback to read ......


Domperidone - Dopamine antagonist Used for The relief of sickness, feeling sick, or the regurgitation of stomach contents.....does not cross the blood-brain barrier to any appreciable degree....just those two words DA made me feel sick.


I have learnt so much on this forum, and beginning to think a bit of knowledge IS a dangerous thing.


Farmers's Wife... welcome and the best of luck to you
