How long before eating should I take domperidone 10 mg for post viral gastroparesis for optimal results?

30 minutes (or more): You need to find out how long it takes your body to start to absorb the medication -- usually that's about 30 minutes, or more, depending on your degree of gastric emptying. If your gastric emptying is 0-15% at 2 hours, consider taking it an hour before; 15-30% - 45 minutes, and 30%+ 30 minutes should work out well. Good luck!

That being said, it is very unlikely that any permanent damage was caused by what sounds to be a transient response. Again, avoid use in the future! ...Read more
