I had hyperemesis gravidarum during my second pregnancy for which I was treated with Zantac, Diclectin, Gravol, Stemitil, Maxoran, and finally Zofran. I had negative reactions to all of these except Zofran. The reaction I had to Maxoran was particularly bad, with blurred vision, slurred speach, inability to walk, and SEVERE agitation, perhaps even some depression. I now have a 14 months old little boy who has been failure to thrive since 3 months and who remains a mystery to the CHEO specialists involved. Is there any evidence to indicate that these drugs, or drug reactions in general can cause FTT in infants? I have also been on Domperidone for milk supply assistance since he was 3 weeks... any links here with FTT? Thanks.
Please consult your doctor. To our knowledge, there is no evidence that any of these drugs taken in pregnancy,or the domperidone in breastfeesing are associated with failure to thrive in an infant who was exposed.
