* Survey of Domperidone and Metoclopramide Use in Breastfeeding Mothers:
If you are or have been a nursing mother using either Reglan or Domperidone to participate in this quick survey. It is very important that research such as this be done to enrich our knowledge of how to better assist mothers with insufficient milk production.Thomas Hale & Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, co-investigators.
We are pleased to announce our new online research study, a survey of women's experience with the drugs metoclopramide and domperidone, which can be used to stimulate milk production. We would like to collect side effect information on both drugs from as many mothers as possible worldwide.
The survey link is: http://surveys.ttuhsc.edu/wsb.dll/s/60g759 For more information about the study, contact Dr. Kendall-Tackett at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The survey takes 20-30 minutes to complete and is confidential. It has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Amarillo, TX.
