I am concerned about my prescription for Gastroparesis, need more info before I second guess the doc

I have been prescribed domperidone by a specialist and after reading up on it I am a little concerned that it is not safe for me to take. I also have Factor V Leiden, a gene mutation which makes me more prone to blood clots and have had clots in my lungs within the last 2 years. Domperidone is also used to help women produce milk and contains hormones. I know that most hormones are unsafe for me to take as they increase the chance of clotting, as I have been told previously.
It also says in the attached leaflet not to take Domperidone if you are on treatment for depression and lists some examples. I am taking Sertraline, which it doesn't specifically list but I know its a very similar drug to the ones listed.
It also says on the leaflet do not take Domperidone if you could have possible intestinal bleeding or if you have had any blood in your stools. I have been off work for the last 6 months ill and one of my main concerning symptoms is frequent bright red blood and black blood in my stool.
I have stopped taking Domperidone for now as I have been feeling considerably worse since taking it and have developed new symptoms. I will contact my GP to ask her opinion, but before I second guess the specialist (who I really hope hasn't over looked all these factors, that he was well aware of) I would be really grateful for any information from people who have experience with any of these illnesses.
