Hi,

Does anyone take Motilium for their gastrointestinal (GI) problems, if so, how has it helped you and did you have any side effects?

Thanks,

Summer

Summer,

I can't speak personally about Motilium; however, you should be aware that Motilium has an FDA warning here in the US. There have been several published reports and case studies of cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac arrest and sudden death in patients receiving an intravenous form of domperidone (brand names Motilium. Eucito, cilronton, praxis, seronex, and emiken) U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 2004.

Please the Domperidome Warning under Dismobility Syndrome.

You might want to explore our Gastrointestinal Involvement page for other options.

Big Hugs,

Hello Summer

I use motillium for nausea/vomiting and although it's good for nausea not so much for when you're actually puking.

I use it in suppository form as oral anti emetics seem rather pointless! It can make me drowsey but no effects other than that. I believe it's supposed to speed up digestive transit.

Hope this helps.
