Domperidone/reflux side effects

Posted , 6 users are following.

Very embarrassing side effect of faecal incontinence when I excercise. Want to cut down on Domperidone because it can apparently cause this but my reflux is bad so need Domperidone. Lived with IBS for over 30 years.

    Ask your doctor to change your medication if you are reacting to it.

    Hi can you just clarify what is Domperidone and what you take it for. Also what type of reflux are you referring to? I ask because depending on what you are treating, maybe there is another  medication

    Hey claire domperidone will mainly  push the stomach content forward so will help in reflux and reduce nausea and vomiting but if you have IBS-d and if you are experiencing side effects then consult your gp and change the medicine.

      hey claire sorry she could not help...But can you tell us what is the real reason of your acid reflux? for example gastritis, hiatal hernia or just loosening of lower esophageal sphincter....initially u can try reducing the dose of domperidone up to half and observe for a week...If after reducing the dose you experience acid reflux as dose is not sufficient and also experience diarrhea then you can try over the counter ranitidine...it will basically reduce your acid reflux and with that you can take sucralfate or carafate that will reduce acidity in your stomach...hope this will help...and if you try that please let us know if that works or not...
