Bad mother that I am, i have almost run out and what I thought was bag with a new bottle in in the cupboard was in fact something else. My GP needs 48hrs for a repeat prescription so it wont be ready before FRiday morning and then I've got the hassle of droppig it off, collecting it and then gettiing to the chemist. Would be easier to just go and buy it tomorrow for once. But can you get it without prescription?

Thanks. This is so annoying

Yes you can buy Domperidone over the counter! Is it for a child though? as dosage will be adult one

I'm sure I saw it behind the counter in Boots .

Best news I've had all day laylandsethsmum. I can work out dosage so long as strenght is the same. It is for DS2. Are you absolutely sure I can buy it?????

How old is Ds2? children over 12 can have 1-2 tablets of 10mg every 4 hrs but children under this age have to have so many micrograms per kilo of body weight. I don't know if it available as syrup probably only tablets over the counter. TBH if he is under 12 you are best ringing the surgery and explaining the problem, if this is a repeat medication they should sort it out for you as a one off, I would imagine your GP would be happier to do this than you work out the dose for yourself!

(I read that as Dom Perignon, which is quite different!)

yes you can... i wanted it when breastfeeding, for milk supply and was turned away when they heard what it was for!

so i went to another oen and said it was for dp who had had it before and it was for bloatedness and they gave it to me!

This may be usuful for you to know but there is a designated emergency chemist in every area which can be opened up in emergency (usually by the police ) at the request of a GP if it is an emergency!

thansk guys. But mine is for my DS2 who is 22 months. He's been on it almost all his life and takes it in liquid form 3.5ml QD. I didn't know that about the breast feeding thing until after I had given up (although DS" had other probs so it may not have worked oout anyway) but I might have tried it. Too late now thouh!

I shall be at the chemist first thing tomorrow, then drop in a repeat prescription when I can.
