Anyone Taking Domperidone?
I was recently diagnosed with Gastroparesis after a positive gastric empying test. After some time with symptons of this dreadful condition I suspected It was Gastroparesis and voiced concerned at my endocrine appointment, have diabetes too which I was told is the reason I have this. I saw a gastroenterologist, was prescribed domperidone which isnt available is the USA/not FDA approved and I have to get it either from a compounding pharmacy or Canada. I'm a bit leery about a medicine that isnt fda approved and Im wondering is anyone else on this medication? If so, has it helped your symptoms? Are side effects worth the risk? Right now I vomit multiple times daily. Even smells will trigger a vomiting episode, I cant eat anything solid! My stomach hurts, my throat and chest burn, my blood sugars are all over the map. This is the worse thing ever to have to live with. Help.
