Tardive Dyskinesia Linked to Reglan

There are always risks involved in taking any kind of medication. It is rare that the effects of any kind of drug are limited to only the desired effects. This sort of drug is what is often referred to as the miracle drug.

Reglan has been used for the desired effect of treating gastroesophageal reflux. It, however, is not a miracle drug. Its effects include both those desired and several that are not desired.

One of these undesired effects has been the development of a disorder known as tardive dyskinesia. This is an extremely debilitating disorder that causes involuntary movements. Many legal claims against Reglan involve this disorder and so some attention will be devoted to the nature of tardive dyskinesia in this article.
