Can I Consume Domperidone After Eating?
Afternoon doctor, want to ask, for domperidone can be consumed after eating? How long is the distance from taking the drug after eating?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Domperidone is an antiemetic class of drugs that can be used to relieve nausea, vomiting, acid reflux, and various other digestive disorders. This drug works by speeding up the process of digestion of food in the stomach so that it continues into the intestine.
In order to be optimally absorbed from the digestive tract, domperidone should be consumed in an empty stomach. Therefore, consumption of domperidone is recommended before meals (30 to 60 minutes before meals). However, this medication can also be consumed after eating, provided you give a gap of at least 2 hours between eating with domperidone consumption so that you wait for an empty stomach first.
Although it can be obtained easily at drug stores, domperidone does not actually belong to the free drug class. Therefore, before consuming it, you must first check your complaint to the doctor so that it is given the right treatment and avoid the dangerous risks due to improper drug consumption.
Hope this helps ...
