About Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's

Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's belongs to a class of medications known as 'dopamine antagonist' used to treat nausea (feeling sick) and vomit (being sick) in adults and adolescents 12 years or older. Besides this, it also helps in the treatment of indigestion. Nausea and vomiting are not diseases but are symptoms of many conditions like infections, motion sickness, an early stage of pregnancy, and gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying).

Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's contains domperidone, which prevents nausea and vomiting symptoms by blocking certain receptors (like dopamine and serotonin) that stimulate the vomiting centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone – CTZ) located in the brain. It also acts as a prokinetic agent that increases the upper gastrointestinal tract's motility and helps decrease stomach emptying time.

Take Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's as prescribed by your doctor. Symptoms of nausea and vomiting may usually resolve within 3-4 days after taking Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's. However, if it does not resolve even after this, stop taking this medicine and contact the doctor. Do not take Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's for longer than seven days.

This risk may be more likely in the elderly (those over 60 years old) or taking doses higher than 30 mg daily. Motidom DT 10 Tablet 10's is not usually recommended in pregnancy and breastfeeding.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Nausea is a feeling of stomach uneasiness that often comes before vomiting. On the other hand, vomiting is the forcible voluntary or involuntary emptying of stomach contents through the mouth. In short, nausea and vomiting are not diseases but are symptoms of many conditions like infections, motion sickness, an early stage of pregnancy, and gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying). A receptor in our brain known as the chemoreceptor zone (CTZ) controls vomiting.
