MOTIL® Drops
Anti-nausea and vomiting
  • Domperidone is dopamine antagonist, which selectively blocks peripheral dopamine receptors both in  the gastrointestinal wall and in the chemoreceptor trigger zone  which lies outside the blood brain barrier in the area postrema.
  • Domperidone has antiemetic properties similarl to those at  metoclopramide and certain neuroleptic drugs. 
  • Unlike metoclopramide and certain neuroleptic drugs, Domperidone does not cross the blood brain barrier and hence significantly lacks the extrapyramidal side effects associated with these drugs.
  • Domperidone is rapidly absorbed after oral administration, with peak plasma concentration at approximately 30 minutes.
  • The low absolute bioavailability of oral dose approximately 15% is due to an extensive first pass metabolism in the gut wall and liver.
  • More than 90% of Domperidone is bound to plasma proteins, and has a terminal half-life of about 7.5 hours,but it is prolonged in patients with severe renal impairment.

¤ Antiacids and antisecretary drugs should not be given simultaneously with MOTIL®, because they lower it’s oral bioavailability.

¤ The drug that inhibit CYP3A4 increase MOTIL® plasma level such as: 

  • Azole antifungal such as Fluconazole, Itraconazole, Ketoconazole and Voriconazole.
