Domperidone Side Effects For Old Age?
Sorry, I want to ask the domperidone medicine, can I give it to people who are over 60 years old and above, then it’s safe … thanks
Hello Novi Nopret, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Domperidone is a drug that belongs to the class of anti-vomiting drugs, where this drug works by blocking dopamine receptors (receptors), thus helping to increase digestive tract movements and shorten the time needed to empty the stomach and small intestine.
These drugs are generally just not allowed or need special attention to people with:
History of allergy with the use of domperidone drugs
Pituitary gland tumors
Prolongation of certain waves on the heart record
Electrolyte disturbance in the body
Blockage of the digestive tract
Rupture of one of the digestive tract
Moderate to severe impaired liver function
Are taking certain drugs that can interact with domperidone drugs
As long as the person you are asking is not included in the criteria that are not allowed as mentioned above, and the drug is given according to doctor's instructions, then it can be said that the drug is safe enough to be used even though it has reached 60 years or more. However, if the person decides to use the domperidone drug at his own discretion and is not directed by the doctor, then the use of the drug is not recommended, and it is advisable to check his condition first with the doctor before taking the drug to ascertain whether the condition is possible or not to consume the domperidone drug.
I hope this helps.
