Since the pituitary gland is below the blood-brain barrier, domperidone may cause an increase in prolactin levels. In rare cases, this hyperprolactinemia can lead to neuroendocrine adverse effects such as galactorrhea, gynecomastia and amenorrhea.

Extrapyramidal effects are very rare in newborns and infants, and exceptional in adults. These side effects regress spontaneously and completely when the treatment is stopped.

Central nervous system disorders such as convulsions, restlessness and drowsiness are also very rare and reported mainly in infants and children.
