1 Since the pituitary gland is located below the hemi-encephalic barrier, domperidone may cause an increase in prolactin levels. In rare cases, this hyperprolactinemia can lead to neuroendocrine inducible effects such as galactorrhea, gynecomasty, and ameliority.

2 Extrapyramidal effects are very rare in newborns and infants, and exceptional in adults. These untoward effects spontaneously and completely subside at the end of treatment.

3 Central nervous system disorders such as seizures, restlessness and drowsiness are also very rare and reported mainly in infants and children.
