  • I have never taken Reglan, but have taken domperidone, which is very similar, even supposedly a little less effective than Reglan, and it worked WONDERS for my supply. Within about a week I went from pumping 4-6 ounces a day to pumping 30.

    Domperidone is not FDA approved, so it isn't covered by insurance and is expensive, and it also has to be made at a compounding pharmacy. But I highly recommend looking into it instead of the Reglan....way less side effects.

  • never took never heard of it before; I had problems getting my milk to come in also even after pumping for an hour I would get 2 ounces at the most. It is disheartening but if your doctor feels that this will help then I would trust my doctor and see how things go. Good Luck

  • Reglan has the nasty side effect of depression.

    Is baby on the breast at all? It will help.

    Drop by the breastfeeding moms group; I think we can really help you.

  • im on Domperidone. the Dr said reglan but pharmacy gave me Domperidone. { they're pretty much the same thing } my insurance covered it just fine. she loves breast feeding.. she will take a bottle if i have to but adores the closeness for breastfeeding.
