How to Get Domped for Gastrointestinal Disorders
FDA recognizes that there are some patients with severe gastrointestinal motility disorders that are difficult to manage with available therapy for whom Domped’s potential benefits may justify its potential risks. Patients 12 years of age and older with certain gastrointestinal (GI) conditions who have failed standard therapies may be able to receive treatment with Domped through an expanded access investigational new drug application (IND). These conditions include gastroesophageal reflux disease with upper GI symptoms, gastroparesis, and chronic constipation.
Many medicines have not been studied specifically in older people. Therefore, it may not be known whether they work exactly the same way they do in younger adults or if they cause different side effects or problems in older people. There is no specific information comparing the use of Domped in the elderly with use in other age groups.
Children—Studies on Domped have been done only in adult patients, and there is no specific information comparing use of Domped in children with use in other age groups.

What is Domped?
Domped is used to treat nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick). It may also be used to relieve symptoms of indigestion or dyspepsia. Domped works by increasing the movement of food through the stomach and the digestive tract more quickly and in this way reduces the feeling of bloating, or fullness and indigestion. It also works by blocking the action of a chemical in your brain which causes the feeling of nausea and vomiting. In New Zealand, Domped is available as tablets (10mg).
- The usual dose of Domped is 10mg up to three times a day. Do not take more than 4 doses (40mg) in a 24 hour period. This can increase your chance of side effects.
- Domped should be taken for a short period of time only (usually not longer than seven days) at the lowest dose to have an effect. If you are taking Domped for nausea or vomiting, you can stop taking it when you start to feel better.
- Always take your Domped exactly as your doctor has told you.
- The pharmacy label on your medicine will tell you how much Domped to take, how often to take it, and any special instructions.
