How Peridone Works?
The gastroprokinetic properties of Peridone (domperidone) are related to its peripheral dopamine receptor blocking properties. Peridone facilitates gastric emptying and decreases small bowel transit time by increasing esophageal and gastric peristalsis and by lowering esophageal sphincter pressure.
The antiemetic properties of Peridone are related to its dopamine receptor blocking activity at both the chemoreceptor trigger zone and at the gastric level.[image]

When to avoid Peridone?

Peridone Tablets or Suspension should not be used whenever stimulation of gastric motility is to be avoided or could be harmful and in the presence of gastro-intestinal hemorrhage, obstruction or perforation.
Peridone Side Effects
In placebo-controlled trials, incidence of side effects has not differed from placebo. This drug does not cross the normally functioning blood brain barrier and therefore does not interfere with central dopaminergic system. In some cases allergic reactions such as rash or urticaria, abdominal cramps and dystonic reactions (Extrapyramidal phenomenon) may occur.
Keep all drugs out of the reach of children and never take any medication (including Peridone) without asking a qualified healthcare professional.
