What is Domperidone?
Domperidone is an anti-sickness medicine that helps to alleviate the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. It is also prescribed to treat stomach pain by increasing the contractions or movements of the stomach and bowel.

Domperidone has been shown to be effective in preventing stomach problems associated with certain medications for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
Often referred to by its brand name Motilium, Domperidone is available in tablet or suspension form.
How does Domperidone work?
Domperidone is an antiemetic and a prokinetic medicine. What this means is that it is effective at relieving symptoms of vomiting & nausea (antiemetic) and acid reflux (prokinetic).
Antiemetic medication works by blocking the action of chemicals in the brain that results in feelings of nausea and vomiting.
Prokinetic medications control acid reflux in the stomach. It helps to empty the stomach and digestive tract quicker through increased movements and contractions of the stomach and intestines. It also helps to reduce the feelings of fullness, indigestion and bloating.
