    Domperidone changed my life. Among my disabilities, I have gastroparesis, IBS, and chronic vomiting. I have tried every option available but this is the only drug that works to help control my symptoms. I have been on it for years and my doctors carefully monitor for any side effects.

    This drug changes lives. Please do not take our freedom from some of our pain and ability to live as normally as possible away. We are patients who use this drug and accept the possible side effects. There are many, far more dangerous medical treatments more widely used that cause more harm on the market and widely accepted.

    Please don't take our miracle drug away.

    As long as patients go for electrocardiograms as needed there is no reason why domperidone should not be made available to us in the USA. It is the most effective motility medication available with the fewest possible side effects.

    My husband suffers in pain daily due to greatly enlarged colon and gastroparesis. I'm begging for this drug to be approved and monitored closely.

    PLease approve this drug as it is the only thing that relieves some symptoms of gastroparesis ..eating is a necessity and cannot be done away with..........reglan is no answer as it can only be used about 2 months and causes irreversible neurological brain damage. If the reason for not approving is cause of pregnant women should not use it then doctors can just not give it to them. Other drugs that they should not take are still on the market. Makes no sense why people who desperately need this drug for some relief cannot have it. This is a matter of survival.We should not have to deal with medicines that do not work or have awful side effects. Please consider all the people who suffer and cannot live a good life as a result of not approving this drug. This needs to be approved immediately..Thank you.
