Dopamine receptor antagonists, like domperidone and metoclopramide, counter these effects of dopamine in the GI tract.
Dopamine receptors are located in the chemoreceptor trigger zone and dopamine receptor antagonists primarily affect this area; however, high doses of dopamine receptor blockades result in extrapyramidal reactions, disorientation, and sedation, which limit the clinical use of such agents, including phenothiazines and butyrophenones (droperidol and haloperidol) (8).
