Has anyone heard about Domperidone potentially causing heart problems? I decided to do some research on Domperidone since I'm looking at different options to boost my supply and found out that just over a month ago a safety alert was issued by the FDA saying the medication could cause fatal heart problems! Yikes! I was going to try Fenugreek first anyways but if it didn't work I would have tried the Dom but definitely won't be doing that now. Just thought I'd post this link about it in case anyone else is considering using the medication and doesn't know about this.

I took domperidone with all 3 of my previous babies (haven't really needed it this go around). I never had any heart issues. Reglan is another used to increase milk supply.

Never heard of Domperidone. Fenugreek works for me
