Bromopride is indicated in the treatment of nausea and vomiting, including postoperative nausea and vomiting.


should not be used when stimulation of muscular contractions might adversely affect gastrointestinal conditions, as in gastrointestinal haemorrhage, obstruction, perforation, or immediately after surgery.

Adverse reactions:

may cause extrapyramidal symptoms (usually acute dystonic reactions); these are more common in children and young adults, especially if female, and at daily doses above 500 micrograms/kg.

Increased toxicity may occur if it is given to patients receiving lithium, and caution is advisable with other centrally active drugs such as antiepileptics. Antimuscarinics and opioid analgesics antagonise the gastrointestinal effects The absorption of other drugs may be affected by it may either diminish absorption from the stomach (as with digoxin) or enhance absorption from the small intestine (for example, with ciclosporin, aspirin, or paracetamol). It inhibits serum cholinesterase and may prolong neuromuscular blockade produced by suxamethonium and mivacurium may also increase prolactin blood concentrations and therefore interfere with drugs which have a hypoprolactinaemic effect such as bromocriptine It has been suggested that it should not be given to patients receiving MAOIs.
