Motilium produces milk?

Hello all, I am 47 and on pariet and motilium for acid reflux, these seem to work on the reflux what I hav also got though is weight gain and feel like I am pregnant and now Ive noticed theres milk in my breasts. I see the gyno on Thurs for a followup on other matters but will definatly be having a chat about this. Is this normally used for milk production?

I was prescribed motillium to increase my breastmilk supply because I had kidney failure in my last week of pregnancy and my body couldn't keep up with healing and making lots of milk. It worked really well and my doctor told me its what they prescribe mums who adopt or have someone else carry their bubs so they can breastfeed their babies. Pretty impressive drug!!

I've heard instances of this, but never experienced it personally.  You could always go to the store and buy a pregnancy test.  Also - you could check with  pharmacist to ask about concerns with the medication.

Hey Diane, Ihad ablation surgery last Oct which basically means I cant get pregnant, also my hubby had a vasectomy 14yrs ago. Last week to check ovarian issues I had a full ultrasound and theres definatly no pregnancy Ive read alot since posting and see these motilium is used for lactacting mums to help increase milk and a side effect is weight gain and sore breasts and milk, so looks like I need to stop them and hope the reflux dont set off bad again, another symptom ive had this week is constant headache, Ill know more tomorrow when I visit the gyno specialist, thanks anyway

I took domperidone (motillium) while relactating, so it can cause you to produce milk.
