Dangerous Side Effects of Reglan


All too often we hear about detrimental side effects of the latest and greatest drug. Recently, this sort of talk began reaching many ears about the drug Reglan.

It is important to know the facts about the risks and benefits of any drug and in cases where the drug has been shown to have more risks then benefits, it is that much more important to be aware of the facts.

Many national law firms such as Nadrich & Cohen are currently investigating and evaluating cases from victims suffering with Tardivie Dyskinesia attributed to Reglan.

In this blog article, we will look at the drug Reglan and describe the desired side effects of this drug and more importantly look at some the not-so-desired side effects that are continuously being reported about this drug.

Reglan

Reglan is a prescription drug used to treat gastroesophageal reflux. It’s generic name is Metoclopramide. Another thing that it is prescribed for is diabetic gastroparesis.

So what is Reglan intended to do? In other words, what are its desired side effects? Reglan has been created to increase the amount of muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract. This in turn increases the speed the stomach moves to digest food.

Tardivie Dyskinesia

There have been many severe side effects of Reglan that have been reported including Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (causes kidney damage), delirium, fever, unstable blood pressure and muscle-rigidity.

Out of the many side effects reported, one of the most tragic is Tardivie Dyskinesia. Tardivie Dyskinesia is a neurological condition that causes involuntary rapid movements of the arms and legs as well as involuntary grimacing.

It has been reported that the FDA’s position on Reglan is currently that the risks outweigh the benefit. Unfortunately, it has been used by over 2 million Americans. If you or someone you love is suffering from any of these risks from Reglan, contact the national law offices of Nadrich & Cohen to see if you may be entitles to monetary recovery.
