Film-coated tablets, Motonium

Motonium is an antiemetic drug, a central blocker of dopamine receptors.

Release form and composition

Dosage form Motonium - film-coated tablets: round, biconvex, white, both outside and on the break (10 tablets in a blister strip, in a cardboard box 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 packages).

Composition of 1 tablet:

  • active substance: domperidone - 10 mg;
  • auxiliary components: lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, glycerol, magnesium stearate, corn starch;
  • film shell: hypromellose, macrogol-6000.

Pharmacological properties


According to the instructions, Motonium blocks peripheral and central dopamine receptors in the trigger zone of the brain, eliminating the inhibitory effect on the motor function of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Dopamine enhances the motor and evacuation activity of the stomach, eliminates nausea, hiccups, and has an antiemetic effect. Increases the concentration of prolactin in the serum.


When Motonium is taken on an empty stomach, absorption is fast, after meals, as well as with low gastric acidity, the absorption of the drug slows down and decreases.

The maximum concentration of dopamine (C max) is reached in 60 minutes. The bioavailability of the drug is 15%. The connection with plasma proteins is 90%. Domperidone penetrates into tissues, poorly passes through the blood-brain barrier.

The drug is metabolized in the liver, as well as in the intestinal wall (hydroxylation and N-dealkylation). It is excreted mainly by the intestines (66%, of which 10% - unchanged) and by the kidneys (33%, of which 1% - unchanged). The half-life of domperidone is 7-9 hours (it may be lengthened with a pronounced decrease in renal function).

Indications for use

  • nausea and vomiting associated with infections, radiation therapy, toxemia, an inaccurate diet, as well as taking drugs such as morphine, apomorphine, levodopa, bromocriptine;
  • prevention of nausea and vomiting, as well as the need to accelerate peristalsis during radiopaque and endoscopic studies of the gastrointestinal tract;
  • hiccups;
  • atony of the gastrointestinal tract (including after surgical interventions);
  • dyspeptic disorders caused by delayed gastric emptying, gastroesophageal reflux, esophagitis, such as heaviness in the epigastric region, bloating, flatulence, gastralgia, belching, heartburn.

  • prolactinoma;
  • pregnancy and lactation;

  • concomitant use with oral forms of ketoconazole, erythromycin and other drugs that can prolong the QT interval, inhibitors of the isoenzyme CYP34A (for example, fluconazole, voriconazole, clarithromycin, amiodarone, telithromycin);
