Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved Reglan (marked generically under the name Metoclopramide) in June 1985, thousands of patients have taken the drug to treat chronic acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Gastroparesis and gastrointestinal conditions related to diabetes.
The medication is also prescribed to combat chemotherapy-related nausea, and is also prescribed intravenously to surgical patients awakening from general anesthesia to prevent nausea and vomiting.
Reglan was formulated to help patients who experience problems caused when stomach contents to leak back into the esophagus. The drug works to speed up the time it takes the body to digest food and empty the stomach.
FDA Investigation into Reglan Health Problems
In February 2009, the FDA first notified healthcare providers and patients about a serious side effect that had been linked to the long-term use of Reglan. The condition, known as tardive dyskinesia (TD), causes uncontrollable muscle spasms in the facial muscles and extremities.
TD patients experience problems that prevent them from being able to control rapid blinking of the eyes, smacking of the lips, grimacing and repeatedly sticking out their tongue. In addition, these patients also experience muscle spasms and tremors in the trunk, arms, fingers and legs.
Tragically, TD is untreatable. Even after TD patients discontinue taking Reglan, their symptoms may not disappear.
