Indications and guidelines for treatment.
Information on the use of domperidone treatment for low milk supply is provided by the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine: Use of Galactogogues in Initiating or Augmenting the Rate of Maternal Milk Secretion.
Note: Domperidone is not approved for use as a galactagogue in New Zealand. Medsafe has not evaluated the safety and efficacy of domperidone when used as a galactagogue; and therefore Medsafe (Ministry of Health) cannot conclude that it is safe or effective for this indication. More information on the approved uses of domperidone is available as a download from the Medsafe website: Motilium/Domperidone data sheet (PDF, 173KB).
For information on the use of unapproved medicines including limitations embedded in the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers’ Rights Act 1996 see Unapproved medicines on the Medsafe website.
