Thu, Jun 4 3:59pm · Badgut RN: Looking for answers to help with gastroparesis    in Digestive Health

I read there’s a new drug, maybe in trials, “donperidone”. A medical school near you might be able to help.

The best advice for anyone with digestion issues: go ASAP to a dietician. I had to ask for this as it’s simply Not on a medical doctor’s radar!! Lots and lots of help from dietician. Medicare doesn’t pay for this diagnosis to see dietician so you may have to pay but worth it. If you have other insurance I don’t know the protocol. But if you have other issues, insurance pays for diabetes nutrition guidance and I believe overweight diet counseling.

I also suffer from this, however, the ulcers are my problem now.

Is it as EXPENSIVE as Restasis? I can’t afford Restasis. Seems Medicare & drug plans don’t consider dry eye a serious vision issue.

So ulcers solutions anyone? Carafate & rabeprazole not working.

My gastroenterologist specializes in gastroparesis. He was going to prescribe Mestonin which is off label use. But my gastroparesis is not as severe as the first test showed so my biggest problem is ulcers. I can’t control that.
