What is Motilium?

Domperidone (trade names Motilium, Motillium, Motinorm Costi, Nomit and Molax) is a medication developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica that is a peripheral, specific blocker of dopamine receptors. It is administered orally, rectally, or intravenously. Domperidone is given in order to relieve nausea and vomiting; to increase the transit of food through the stomach (as a prokinetic agent through increase in gastrointestinal peristalsis); and to increase lactation (breast milk production) by release of prolactin. It is also used in the scientific study of the way dopamine (an important neurotransmitter) acts in the body.

Domperidone is available in the form of tablets, orally disintegrating tablets (based on Zydis technology),
