Medication to start breast milk production

Patient: Is there any medican that can star the prodution of milk in the breast

 

 

Doctor: Best signal to the brain for breast milk secretion is the baby’s suckling of the nipple. There may not be any medicine a available to start milk production, however to increase the production domperidone or metoclopramide (to be taken under the guidance of your doctor), may be taken. Also a breast pump or manual stimulation of the nipple may also help with breast milk production.
