Drug Description


Motilium DT (generically known as Domperidone) is an oral medication primarily used for the treatment of symptoms such as indigestion, nausea, and vomiting. It can be prescribed to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastroparesis. It helps improve breast milk supply in lactating women by increasing the levels of prolactin, a hormone involved in breast milk production. 

Domperidone works by blocking certain receptors in the body, specifically dopamine and serotonin receptors. By blocking these receptors, Domperidone increases the movement of food through the stomach and prevents nausea and vomiting.  

Use and Dosage 

Domperidone comes in the form of DT tablets and is taken before meals, usually one tablet (5 mg) taken three times a day. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet before swallowing. The tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. 

The usual starting dose of domperidone for adults is 10 mg taken three times a day. The maximum recommended daily dose is 30 mg. Domperidone is typically taken before meals, but if taken after meals, absorption of the drug may be somewhat delayed. 

If you miss a dose of Motilium DT, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is close to the time for your next scheduled dose. In that case, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
