Motonium Pharmacodynamics
Domperidone is a dopamine antagonist with antiemetic properties.
Domperidone poorly penetrates through the blood-brain barrier. Domperidone use is rarely accompanied by extrapyramidal side effects, especially in adults, but domperidone stimulates prolactin release from the pituitary gland. Its antiemetic effect may be due to a combination of peripheral (gastrokinetic) action and antagonism to dopamine receptors in the chemoreceptor trigger zone, which is outside the blood-brain barrier.
Animal studies and low concentrations of the drug detected in the brain indicate a predominantly peripheral effect of domperidone on dopamine receptors.
When administered orally, domperidone increases the duration of antral and duodenal contractions, accelerates gastric emptying and increases lower esophageal sphincter pressure. Domperidone has no effect on gastric secretion.

For relief of symptoms of nausea and vomiting.

  • Administration in patients with renal insufficiency
    Since the half-life of domperidone is prolonged in severe renal failure (serum creatinine ˃ 6 mg/100 ml, ˃ 0.6 mmol/l), the frequency of administration of Motonium® film-coated tablets should be decreased to 1 or 2 times per day, depending on the degree of failure.
  • Regular examination of patients with severe renal failure is necessary (see section “Pharmacological properties”).
  • Administration in patients with hepatic insufficiency.
  • Motonium® use is contraindicated in patients with moderate to severe hepatic insufficiency (see sect. “Contraindications”). In patients with mild hepatic insufficiency, no dose adjustment is required (see section “Pharmacological properties”).
