It is important to remember that such a pill should be taken 15-25 minutes before eating, and the number of pills or ml per day will be individually depending on the disease of a particular patient.
Motilium is a harmless medicament but it also needs the advice of your doctor. There may be other symptoms that can also be removed with these pills.
