After seeing my Neurologist I'm to stop Omeprazole and introduce Domperidone. Domperidone is a unique gastrokinetic and antimetic drug and because of its favourable safety profile, my Neurologist thought it would help kick my rather sluggish gut into action. I asked if he would refer me to be tested for gastroparesis and he said he would like me to try Domperidone first. Well, I've not introduced Domperidone yet because I wasn't prepared to wait two hours for the prescription to be dispensed at the hospital pharmacy and the prescription cannot be used elsewhere (how crazy is that?!!) So I’m waiting for my repeat prescription to be upadated. If all goes to plan, I will start Domperidone on August 5th.
Meanwhile, I’ve made some changes to my diet and the way I eat. I made these changes after reading this article http://www.puristat.com/bloating/Food-Combining.aspx
Since doing so I am no longer constipated and experiencing no off dystonia. My overall day is a lot smoother. Therefore, I’m going to see how I go over the next few weeks and I will keep you informed.
