I used it for morning sickness during pregnancy (hyperemisis gravidarium (sp?)). Neither I nor my son have ever used it for reflux but it did nothing for the HG...

While my son was in the hospital they put him on it and it was awful. He went from a calm baby to the hulk. He was angry and screamed non stop and wouldn't sleep. They tried to discharge us and I refused until they switched the meds. They thought I was nuts but it turned out it was the medicine.

I would avoid it if possible. It comes with some nasty side-effects. Our son had tremors. Safer drugs in that category for motility are Bethanechol and Eryped (erythromycin). I suggest trying those first.

Our son's ENT wanted us to try Reglan for his emptying problems and we declined - it has a black box warning from the FDA and isn't ever supposed to be used for more than 12 weeks.

Nolan had a Nissen fundoplication back in March (he is five years old with multiple health issues - undiagnosed as to the global cause). He is currently tube fed overnight and that has been working well for him, so we're staying with that. I know there are some families who are able to get domperidone from Canada, and it is a safer drug as it doesn't cross the blood-brain barrier.

I hate this drug! I haven't used it for my kids but I have taken it myself before once and had a really awful reaction to it that I haven't forgotten. They gave it to me intravenously once at the hospital for a migraine. I really thought they might check me into their psych ward because I freaked out on it. Well, I didn't act crazy or anything but my heart felt like it was racing, I felt sweaty, and like I was going to die. It felt sort of like an anxiety attack but I felt this urge to move, like I couldn't sit in the hospital room any longer. From what I understand, all of that was a reaction to the medicine. I wouldn't give this to my kids because I would worry that they were having the kind of reaction I had and not have a way to tell me. It was a really scary/uncomfortable feeling.
