Table of contents:

Motilium DT is a prescription oral medication which is used as an anti-emetic medicine for the treatment of nausea and vomiting caused by slow-moving stomach resulting in delayed emptying. It can be known for its effect on increasing breast milk production by raising levels of prolactin.

Motilium contains Domperidone as an active ingredient. Domperidone is an antiemetic (anti-sickness) and prokinetic drug. It works by blocking certain receptors such as dopamine and serotonin that trigger these symptoms.

Use and Dosage

Domperidone comes as a tablet that should be taken with a glass of water before meals, and the dose and duration of treatment should be determined by a healthcare professional. The tablets should be swallowed whole with a drink of water and not crushed or chewed.

The recommended dosages of Domperidone tablets vary slightly depending on the source, but the usual dose is 10mg tablet taken up to three times per day, preferably before meals. The maximum daily dose is typically 30mg per day. However, the dosage and duration of treatment should be determined by a healthcare professional and may be adjusted depending on the individual's medical condition and response to the medication.

If you miss a dose of Motilium DT (Domperidone), take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.
