Reglan Approved For Short-term Use
Reglan has been approved by the FDA for short term use, usually less than 12 weeks, to treat heartburn, acid reflux disease and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Many times patients are being prescribed Reglan for longer term use, 12 months or longer and for uses not approved on the label. Some of these uses include treatment of pregnancy related nausea and morning sickness, lactation stimulation and treatment for migraine headaches.
The injectable version of Reglan is approved by the FDA to treat nausea caused by cancer chemotherapy. Treatment with metoclopramide (Reglan) is known to cause tardive dyskinesia, a serious, often irreversible, movement disorder.
You must contact your physician immediately if you develop any uncontrollable body movements, like lip smacking, mouth puckering, sticking out your tongue, blinking, or shaking of your arms or legs.
If you have taken Reglan and are displaying any side effects please contact an experienced Reglan lawyer at The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen today at 1.800.718.4658 for a free consultation.
Discontinue Metoclopramide After Tardive Dyskinesia Symptoms Appear
Metoclopramide therapy should be discontinued as soon as possible in patients who develop signs or symptoms of tardive dyskinesia. Tardive Dyskinesia is a terribly debilitating syndrome that can last a lifetime and it can affect every part of a victim’s life.
Primary prevention of tardive dyskinesia is achieved by using the lowest effective dose of Reglan for the shortest time.
If you are elderly, if you are female, if you have diabetes, or if you are taking medication for mental illness your chances are greatly increased for developing tardive dyskinesia.
When tardive dyskinesia is diagnosed, Reglan use should be discontinued. Tardive dyskinesia may continue after withdrawal of the drug for months, years or even permanently.
There is no known treatment for tardive dyskinesia. In some patients, symptoms may lessen or resolve after metoclopramide treatment is stopped. Treatment with metoclopramide for longer than 12 weeks should be avoided in all but the rarest of cases.
