Peripheral D2 receptor antagonist
not to be confused with Droperidol
Domperidone, sold under the brand mention Motilium among others, is a dopamine antagonist medicine which is used to treat nausea and vomit, certain gastrointestinal problems like gastroparesis ( delayed gastric emptying ), and to induce and promote breast milk production. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] It may be taken by mouth or rectally. [ 1 ] [ 7 ] [ 8 ]

side effects of domperidone include headache, dry mouth, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and elevated prolactin levels. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] [ 9 ] Secondary to increased prolactin levels, breast changes, milk spring, menstrual irregularities, and hypogonadism can occur. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] [ 9 ] Domperidone may besides cause QT lengthiness and has rarely been associated with serious cardiac complications such as sudden cardiac death. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] [ 12 ] [ 13 ] however, the risks are small and occur more with high doses. [ 13 ] [ 14 ] Domperidone acts as a peripherally selective adversary of the dopamine D2 and D3 receptors. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] due to its low introduction into the brain, the side effects of domperidone are different from those of other dopamine receptor antagonists like metoclopramide and it produces little in the way of central nervous system adverse effects. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] Domperidone was discovered in 1974 and was introduced for checkup habit in 1979. [ 15 ] [ 16 ] [ 17 ] It was developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica. [ 15 ] [ 16 ] Domperidone is available nonprescription in many countries, for example in Europe and elsewhere throughout the earth. [ 18 ] [ 1 ] It is not approved for use in the United States. [ 19 ] [ 20 ] [ 1 ] A derivative of domperidone called deudomperidone is presently under development for potential use in the United States and other countries. [ 21 ] [ 22 ] [ 23 ]

aesculapian uses [edit ]

nausea and vomit [edit ]

There is some attest that domperidone has antiemetic activeness. [ 24 ] It is recommended by the canadian Headache Society for treatment of nausea associated with acuate migraine. [ 25 ]

Gastroparesis [edit ]

Gastroparesis is a aesculapian discipline characterised by delay empty of the stomach when there is no mechanical gastric release obstruction. Its lawsuit is most normally idiopathic, a diabetic complication or a result of abdominal surgery. The condition causes nausea, vomiting, fullness after eating, early repletion ( feeling full moon before the meal is finished ), abdominal pain and bloat. Domperidone can be used to increase the transit of food through the abdomen by increasing gastrointestinal peristalsis and hence to treat gastroparesis. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] It may be utilitarian in idiopathic and diabetic gastroparesis. [ 26 ] [ 27 ] however, increase rate of gastric emptying induced by drugs like domperidone does not constantly correlate well with stand-in of symptoms. [ 28 ]

lactation [edit ]

The hormone prolactin stimulates lactation ( product of front milk ). Dopamine, released by the hypothalamus stops the unblock of prolactin from the pituitary gland. Domperidone, by acting as an anti-dopaminergic agent, results in increased prolactin secretion, and frankincense promotes lactation ( that is, it is a galactogogue ). Domperidone moderately increases the volume of expressed summit milk in mothers of preterm babies where breast milk expression was inadequate, and appears to be dependable for short-run use for this determination. [ 29 ] [ 30 ] [ 31 ] In the United States, domperidone is not approved for this or any other use. [ 20 ] [ 32 ] A analyze called the EMPOWER trial was designed to assess the potency and guard of domperidone in assisting mothers of preterm babies to supply breast milk for their infants. [ 33 ] The study randomized 90 mothers of preterm babies to receive either domperidone 10 mg orally three times casual for 28 days ( Group A ) or placebo 10 magnesium orally three times casual for 14 days followed by domperidone 10 magnesium orally three times daily for 14 days ( Group B ). Mean milk volumes at the begin of the treatment were alike between the 2 groups. After the first 14 days, 78 % of mothers receiving domperidone ( Group A ) achieved a 50 % increase in milk volume, while 58 % of mothers receiving placebo ( Group B ) achieved a 50 % increase in milk volume. [ 34 ] To induce suckling, domperidone is used at a dose of 10 to 20 mg 3 or 4 times per day by mouth. [ 9 ] Effects may be seen within 24 hours or may not be seen for 3 or 4 days. [ 9 ] The maximum effect occurs after 2 or 3 weeks of treatment, and the treatment menstruation by and large lasts for 3 to 8 weeks. [ 9 ] A 2012 review shows that no studies support condom consumption of a galactagogue medicine at any phase of pregnancy, including domperidone. [ 35 ]

other uses [edit ]

Parkinson ‘s disease [edit ]

Parkinson ‘s disease is a chronic neurological condition where a decrease in dopamine in the genius leads to rigidity ( awkwardness of bowel movement ), tremor and other symptoms and signs. Poor gastrointestinal officiate, nausea and vomit is a major problem for people with Parkinson ‘s disease because most medications used to treat Parkinson ‘s disease are given by talk. These medications, such as l-dopa, can cause nausea as a side effect. furthermore, anti-nausea drugs, such as metoclopramide, which do cross the blood–brain barrier may worsen the extrapyramidal symptoms of Parkinson ‘s disease. Domperidone can be used to relieve nausea and gastrointestinal symptoms in Parkinson ‘s disease ; it blocks peripheral D2 receptors but minimally crosses the blood–brain barrier in convention doses ( the barrier between the lineage circulation of the genius and the rest of the body ) so has no effect on the extrapyramidal symptoms of the disease. [ 36 ] [ 37 ] [ 38 ]

other gastrointestinal uses [edit ]

Domperidone may be used in functional indigestion in both adults and children. [ 39 ] [ 40 ] It has besides been found effective in the treatment of ebb in children. [ 41 ] however some specialists consider its risks prohibitive of the treatment of infantile reflux. [ 42 ]

available forms [edit ]

Domperidone is available for use by oral presidency in the form of tablets, orally disintegrating tablets, and suspension, and by rectal administration in the form of suppositories. [ 7 ] [ 8 ] The oral tablets are available in the military capability of 10 magnesium. [ 1 ] Domperidone has been studied for use by intramuscular injection and an intravenous conceptualization was previously available, but the medicine is now only available in forms for oral and rectal administration. [ 1 ]

Contraindications [edit ]

Domperidone is contraindicated with QT-prolonging drugs like amiodarone. [ 43 ]

side effects [edit ]

side effects associated with domperidone include dry mouth, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, nausea, rash, itch, hives, and hyperprolactinemia ( the symptoms of which may include breast expansion, galactorrhea, summit pain/tenderness, gynecomastia, hypogonadism, and menstrual irregularities ). [ 9 ] due to blockade of D2 receptors in the central aflutter organization, D2 sense organ antagonists like metoclopramide can besides produce a assortment of extra side effects including sleepiness, akathisia, restlessness, insomnia, languor, fatigue, extrapyramidal symptoms, dystonia, Parkinsonian symptoms, tardive dyskinesia, and depression. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] however, this is not the event with domperidone, because, unlike early D2 sense organ antagonists, it minimally crosses the blood–brain barrier, and for this reason, is rarely associated with such side effects. [ 1 ] [ 6 ]

Elevated prolactin levels [edit ]

due to D2 receptor blockade, domperidone causes hyperprolactinemia. [ 44 ] Hyperprolactinemia can suppress the secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone ( GnRH ) from the hypothalamus, in turn suppressing the secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone ( FSH ) and luteinizing hormone ( LH ) and resulting in hypogonadism and broken levels of the arouse hormones estradiol and testosterone. [ 45 ] Accordingly, 10 to 15 % of females have been reported to experience mammoplasia ( front expansion ), mastodynia ( breast pain/tenderness ), galactorrhea ( inappropriate or excessive milk production/secretion ), and amenorrhea ( cessation of menstrual cycles ) with domperidone therapy. [ 44 ] Males may experience low libido, erectile dysfunction, and impair spermatogenesis, american samoa well as galactorrhea and gynecomastia. [ 45 ] [ 46 ] D2 sense organ antagonists like antipsychotics and domperidone may besides increase the risk of prolactinomas, but more research is needed to confirm this. [ 47 ] [ 48 ] [ 49 ]

rare reactions [edit ]

cardiac complications [edit ]

Domperidone manipulation is associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac end ( by 70 % ) [ 10 ] most likely through its prolonging effect of the cardiac QT interval and ventricular cardiac arrhythmia. [ 50 ] [ 51 ] The campaign is thought to be blockade of hERG voltage-gated potassium channels. [ 11 ] [ 12 ] The risks are dose-dependent, and appear to be greatest with high/very high doses via intravenous administration and in the aged, arsenic well as with drugs that interact with domperidone and increase its circulating concentrations ( namely CYP3A4 inhibitors ). [ 14 ] [ 13 ] Conflicting reports exist, however. [ 52 ] In neonates and infants, QT extension is controversial and changeable. [ 53 ] [ 54 ] united kingdom drug regulative authorities ( MHRA ) have issued the surveil restriction on domperidone in 2014 due to increased risk of adverse cardiac effects : [ 55 ]

Domperidone (Motilium) is associated with a small increased risk of serious cardiac side effects. Its use is now restricted to the relief of nausea and vomiting and the dosage and duration of use have been reduced. It should no longer be used for the treatment of bloating and heartburn. Domperidone is now contraindicated in those with underlying cardiac conditions and other risk factors. Patients with these conditions and patients receiving long-term treatment with domperidone should be reassessed at a routine appointment, in light of the new advice.

however, a 2015 australian revue concluded the succeed : [ 13 ]

Based on the results of the two TQT (the regulatory agency gold standard for assessment of QT prolongation) domperidone does not appear to be strongly associated with QT prolongation at oral doses of 20 mg QID in healthy volunteers. Further, there are limited case reports supporting an association with cardiac dysfunction, and the frequently cited case-control studies have significant flaws. While there remains an ill-defined risk at higher systemic concentrations, especially in patients with a higher baseline risk of QT prolongation, our review does not support the view that domperidone presents intolerable risk.

possible cardinal perniciousness in infants

[edit ]

In Britain a legal subject involved the death of two children of a mother whose three children had all had hypernatraemia. She was charged with poisoning the children with salt. One of the children, who was born at 28 weeks pregnancy with respiratory complications and had a fundoplication for gastroesophageal ebb and failure to thrive was prescribed domperidone. An advocate for the mother suggested the child may have suffered major tranquilizer malignant syndrome as a side effect of domperidone due to the drug crossing the child ‘s immature blood–brain barrier. [ 56 ]

Interactions [edit ]

In goodly volunteers, the CYP3A4 inhibitor ketoconazole increased the Cmax and AUC concentrations of domperidone by 3- to 10-fold. [ 57 ] This was accompanied by a QT interval extension of about 10–20 milliseconds when domperidone 10 magnesium four times daily and ketoconazole 200 magnesium twice casual were administered, whereas domperidone by itself at the dose assessed produced no such impression. [ 57 ] As such, domperidone with ketoconazole or other CYP3A4 inhibitors is a potentially dangerous combination. [ 57 ]

pharmacology [edit ]

Pharmacodynamics [edit ]

Domperidone is a peripherally selective dopamine D2 and D3 receptor antagonist. [ 6 ] It has no clinically significant interaction with the D1 receptor, unlike metoclopramide. [ 6 ] The medication provides stand-in from nausea by blocking D2 receptors. [ 24 ] It blocks dopamine receptors in the anterior pituitary gland increasing release of prolactin which in turn increases lactation. [ 58 ] [ 59 ] Domperidone may be more utilitarian in some patients and cause damage in others by way of the genetics of the person, such as polymorphisms in the drug conveyer belt gene ABCB1 ( which encodes P-glycoprotein ), the voltage-gated potassium channel KCNH2 gene ( hERG/Kv11.1 ), and the α1D-adrenergic sense organ ADRA1D gene. [ 60 ]

Effects on prolactin levels [edit ]

A one 20 magnesium oral dose of domperidone has been found to increase bastardly serum prolactin levels ( measured 90 minutes post-administration ) in non-lactating women from 8.1 ng/mL to 110.9 ng/mL ( a 13.7-fold increase ). [ 6 ] [ 61 ] [ 62 ] [ 63 ] This was alike to the increase in prolactin levels produced by a individual 20 magnesium oral drug of metoclopramide ( 7.4 ng/mL to 124.1 ng/mL ; 16.7-fold increase ). [ 62 ] [ 63 ] After two weeks of repeated administration ( 30 mg/day in both cases ), the increase in prolactin levels produced by domperidone was reduced ( 53.2 ng/mL ; 6.6-fold above service line ), but the increase in prolactin levels produced by metoclopramide, conversely, was heightened ( 179.6 ng/mL ; 24.3-fold above service line ). [ 6 ] [ 63 ] This indicates that acuate and continuous presidency of both domperidone and metoclopramide is effective in increasing prolactin levels, but that there are unlike effects on the secretion of prolactin with repeated habit. [ 62 ] [ 63 ] The mechanism of the deviation is unknown. [ 63 ] The increase in prolactin levels observed with the two drugs was much greater in women than in men. [ 62 ] [ 63 ] This appears to be due to the higher estrogen levels in women, as estrogen stimulates prolactin secretion from the pituitary gland. [ 64 ] For comparison, normal prolactin levels in women are less than 20 ng/mL, prolactin levels peak at 100 to 300 ng/mL at parturition in fraught women, and in lactating women, prolactin levels have been found to be 90 ng/mL at 10 days postnatal and 44 ng/mL at 180 days postnatal. [ 65 ] [ 66 ]

Pharmacokinetics [edit ]

assimilation [edit ]

The absolute bioavailability of domperidone is gloomy ( 13–17 % or approximately 15 % ). [ 5 ] [ 1 ] This is due to extensive first-pass metamorphosis in the intestines and liver. [ 5 ] conversely, its bioavailability is high via intramuscular injection ( 90 % ). [ 1 ] The onset of carry through of domperidone taken orally is about 30 to 60 minutes. [ 4 ] [ 1 ] Peak levels of domperidone following an oral dose occur after about 60 minutes. [ 5 ] Domperidone photograph increases proportionately with doses in the 10 to 20 mg acid range. [ 5 ] There is a 2- to 3-fold collection in levels of domperidone with frequent repeated oral presidency of domperidone ( four times per day ( every 5 hours ) for 4 days ). [ 5 ] The oral bioavailability of domperidone is reasonably increase and time to peak slenderly increased when it is taken with food and bioavailability is decreased by anterior attendant administration of cimetidine and sodium bicarbonate. [ 5 ]

distribution [edit ]

The plasma protein binding of domperidone is 91 to 93 %. [ 5 ] The tissue distribution of domperidone based on animal studies is wide, but concentrations are broken in the mind. [ 5 ] The drug is a substrate for the P-glycoprotein ( ABCB1 ) conveyer belt, and animal studies suggest that this is the reason for the broken central anxious system penetration of domperidone. [ 67 ] small amounts of domperidone hybrid the placenta in animals. [ 5 ]

metabolism [edit ]

Domperidone is extensively metabolized in the liver and intestines with oral administration. [ 5 ] [ 3 ] [ 68 ] This occurs via hydroxylation and N-dealkylation. [ 5 ] Domperidone is about entirely metabolized by CYP3A4 / 5, though minor contributions by CYP1A2, CYP2D6, and CYP2C8 have been reported. [ 68 ] [ 3 ] CYP3A4 is the major enzyme involved in the N-dealkylation of domperidone, while CYP3A4, CYP1A2, and CYP2E1 are involved in its aromatic hydroxylation. [ 5 ] All of the metabolites of domperidone are inactive as D2 sense organ ligands. [ 1 ] [ 3 ] Overall and extremum levels of domperidone are increased by about 2.9- and 1.5-fold in moderate liverwort impairment, respectively. [ 5 ]

elimination [edit ]

Domperidone is eliminated 31 % in urine and 66 % in feces. [ 5 ] The symmetry of domperidone excreted unchanged is little ( 10 % in feces and 1 % in urine ). [ 5 ] The elimination half life of domperidone is about 7 to 9 hours in healthy individuals. [ 5 ] [ 1 ] however, the elimination half life of domperidone can be prolonged to 20 hours in people with several nephritic dysfunction. [ 5 ] [ 1 ]

chemistry [edit ]

Domperidone is a benzimidazole derivative and is structurally related to butyrophenone neuroleptics like haloperidol. [ 69 ] [ 70 ]

history [edit ]

Domperidone was synthesized at Janssen Pharmaceutica in 1974 following the inquiry on major tranquilizer drugs. [ 16 ] [ 15 ] Janssen pharmacologists discovered that some of major tranquilizer drugs had a significant consequence on dopamine receptors in the central chemoreceptor trigger zone that regulated vomiting and started searching for a dopamine antagonist that would not pass the blood–brain barrier, thereby being release of the extrapyramidal side effects that were associated with drugs of this type. [ 16 ] This led to the discovery of domperidone as a firm antiemetic with minimal cardinal effects. [ 16 ] [ 71 ] Domperidone was patented in the United States in 1978, with the patent filed in 1976. [ citation needed ] In 1979, domperidone was first marketed, under the brand mention Motilium, in Switzerland and West Germany. [ 17 ] Domperidone was subsequently introduced in the forms of orally disintegrating tablets ( based on Zydis technology ) in 1999. [ 72 ] Janssen Pharmaceutical has brought domperidone before the United States Federal Drug Administration ( FDA ) several times, including in the 1990s, but it has not been approved. In April 2014, Co-ordination Group for Mutual Recognition and Decentralised Procedures – Human ( CMDh ) published official press-release suggesting to restrict the use of domperidone-containing medicines. It besides approved earlier published suggestions by Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee ( PRAC ) to use domperidone only for curing nausea and vomit and reduce maximum day by day dose to 10 milligram. [ 7 ]

society and culture [edit ]

Generic names [edit ]

Domperidone is the generic name of the drug and its INN, USAN, BAN, and JAN. [ 73 ] [ 74 ] [ 75 ]

Regulatory approval [edit ]

It was reported in 2007 that domperidone is available in 58 countries, including Canada, [ 1 ] but the uses or indications of domperidone vary between nations. In Italy it is used in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease and in Canada, the drug is indicated in upper gastrointestinal motion disorders and to prevent gastrointestinal symptoms associated with the use of dopamine protagonist antiparkinsonian agents. [ 76 ] In the United Kingdom, domperidone is only indicated for the treatment of nausea and vomit and the discussion duration is normally limited to 1 workweek. In the United States, domperidone is not presently a legally marketed human drug and it is not approved for sale in the United States. On 7 June 2004, FDA issued a public admonition that distributing any domperidone-containing products is illegal. [ 19 ] It is available over-the-counter to treat gastroesophageal reflux and functional indigestion in many countries, such as Ireland, the Netherlands, Italy, South Africa, Mexico, India, Chile, and China. [ 18 ] Domperidone is not broadly approved for habit in the United States. There is an exception for habit in people with treatment-refractory gastrointestinal symptoms under an FDA Investigational New Drug application. [ 1 ]

Formulations [edit ]
