Motilium, also known by its generic alternative name domperidone is a medication used in adults and children to treat nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick). It belongs to a group of medicines called ‘dopamine antagonists’ and manages problems in your digestive system, often linked to gastroparesis. It works by blocking the messages that pass between your digestive system and your brain, causing the muscles at the entrance of your stomach to tighten and the muscles at the exit of your stomach to relax. This makes you less likely to be sick. It can be also used to treat stomach pain during palliative care. Domperidone may also occasionally be prescribed to increase milk supply if you are having trouble breast-feeding but only if other alternatives have not worked.
