2.5 ml per 10 kg body weight, 3-4 times daily before meals and before bedtime.
Use in infants/pediatric:
Although neurological adverse reactions are rare, the risk of neurological adverse reaction is higher in young children since metabolic functions and the blood-brain barrier are not fully developed in the first months of life. Therefore, it is recommended that the dose should be determined accurately and followed strictly in neonates, infants and children. Overdosing may cause extrapyramidal symptoms in children, but other causes should be taken into consideration.
Use in patient with renal impairment
Since very little unchanged drug is excreted via the kidneys, dose modification in patients with renal insufficiency is not needed. Therefore, on repeated administration, the dosing frequency of domperidone should be reduced to once or twice daily depending on the severity of the impairment, and the dose may need to be reduced. Such patients on prolonged therapy should be reviewed regularly.
