Anyone use Domperidone before your mare foaled? If so, when did you start and what were the results?

I have done much reading about this, as i am in a situation where my mares have no milk this year and it's essential to plan in advance. Many vets and readings online suggest ONLY using Domperidone AFTER your mare has foaled with no milk! I have prepared myself by having domperidone on hand to bring in a mares milk in the event of this type of foaling, and also having Seramune on hand as a colostrum substitute. (Mares on domperidone get milk, but not colostrum.) There is another thread going now about domperidone use, in which the board admin Jos is quoted as saying, "researchers showed that recipients of Domperidone produced little or not colostrum of their own in any event (personal communication, Clemson SU). " I have been told by several large farms and vets in my research that domperidone can be dangerous when used ahead of foaling, as anything that creates oxitocin to bring in milk, also causes contractions...and that it WILL induce labor in mares in about 2 wks time. To me, that sounds very dangerous, especially if you're not 100% positive about your breed date. I AM 100% positive, but would much rather supplement a foal until the milk comes in than have one born 'unready' or breech. Just a few thoughts from me.
