Motilium - Pharmacology:

Gastrointestinal emptying (delayed) adjunct; peristaltic stimulant: The gastroprokinetic properties of domperidone are related to its peripheral dopamine receptor blocking properties. Motilium facilitates gastric emptying and decreases small bowel transit time by increasing esophageal and gastric peristalsis and by lowering esophageal sphincter pressure. Antiemetic: The antiemetic properties of domperidone are related to its dopamine receptor blocking activity at both the chemoreceptor trigger zone and at the gastric level.
