Thirty-two mothers with no or inadequate breast milk were treated with metoclopramide. Improved lactation occurred in 66.67 percent of mothers with no breast milk and 100 percent of those with inadequate milk output. Improvement persisted after discontinuing the treatment. No untoward effects were noticed in any of the mothers or their infants.
