[IP] Fw: propulsid

Rodney was correct that propulsid and Cisapride are the same drugs.  I got my
generic names mixed up.  I apologize for the misinfo.  I was talking about
domperidone, generic for motillium.  Domperidone has never been released in
the US, but was previously available on a compassionate use program.  It is
used for gastroparesis.

I decided to jump in here on the propulsid discussion.  Michael, the
compassionate use program has been stopped because the drug company withdrew
its request for FDA approval.  I know because I was one of the compassionate
users. The drug is absolutely necessary to keep me from vomiting
uncontrollably; no other drug worked.  I was therefore distressed by the post
saying that I would have heart arrhythmias--I don't believe that that is true.
I filled out LOTS of paperwork to get on the program, and that was not one of
the side effects.  (That occurred with Cisapride, which was withdrawn from the
market).  The drug has been used safely in Canada and in Europe for many
years.  Anyway, I get propulsid from Canada now.
