dd is on ranitidine and domperidone is it normal for her poo to be?
Hi, my dd was on ranitidine but not domperidone, and I can't remember any green poo. Are you sure it's not something else causing it. I'm sure someone else who has had dcs on both may be able to advise you.
My DS1 was on both meds, I don't remember green poo from this, but the breast feeding counsellor did say that it can be green from a great amount of foremilk (I think that was what it was) maybe your body is producing more foremilk (if you are bf) as it is thirst quenching, to compensate for the weather being hot. Could be worth talking to your locl NCT BF counsellor for advice if you are feeding (you don't have to be an NCT member)
PS I don't know if they told you what each med is for, I was told that the Ranitidine helps with the stomach acid andthe Domperidone speeds food through the system. There is a very good article on it on the Virginia medical school website
DD1 had ranitidine and had green poo sometimes, it tended to be when she'd had stuck wind. I think poo goes green when things aren't being digested properly for one reason or another. Is she very windy?
