Investigational New Drug Applicationfor domperidone?
Background on my question: As one of those unfortunate patients who is particularly sensitive to levodopa induced nausea, life became much more bearable when I discovered domperidone. Until a couple months ago, my neurologist wrote prescriptions for me for domeperidone, then I would fax the prescription to Canada or Great Britian to one of a couple of licensed online pharmacies that had been checked out by independent third parties. A few weeks later, I would have a shipment of domperidone at my doorstep. Recently this ended when the FDA started cracking down on online pharmacies shipping domperidone to the U.S.. They would like patients who need domperidone to fill out an IND application to aquire the drug, a set of forms so long and painful that my neurologist isn't interested. (I don't blame her.) I'm searching for a neurologist who has already filled out the forms for another patient, whom I could visit as a patient and convince to cut and paste my name into previous documents and resubmit on my behalf. Has anyone been through this process? Does anyone have another source for domperidone in the U.S.?
