Domperidone side effects

Hi guys,

I'm 23 and suffer from sphincter of oddi. I've had Botox, 2 sphincterotomies and a sphincteroplasty. These haven't been effective so I've been put on domperidone and sucralfate. I started taking them on 25 oct. I take 30mg domperidone a day (3x10mg) and 4mg of sucralfate a day (4x1mg). I noticed two days ago I am producing milk. Aside from the above condition I am healthy. I'm on two forms of contraception so I'm not pregnant. My mum has a pertuitry tumour and suffers high prolactin levels. Has anyone else had similar side effects? Should I notify my gp as I have a family history of high prolactin? It says that domperidone has a RARE side effect of high prolactin levels and unusual milk production....

    Domperidone is generally thought to cause this side effect much less often than metoclopramide which works very similarly. Although it's rare I don't think it's impossible - I think it's best to discuss this with your GP.
