Abstract

To the Editor: After publication of our peer‐reviewed perspective article on the safe and effective use of domperidone in the management of low milk supply,1 we are disappointed to have been informed that the Australian medicines handbook (AMH) has removed lactation stimulation as a recognised off‐label indication for domperidone (as well as metoclopramide). It appears that this change could be a kneejerk response to recent regulatory warnings, despite these being highlighted as not being of relevance to most breastfeeding women.1,2 These changes carry with them the significant potential to create confusion among prescribers and the public.
