Common Side Effects From Reglan®

Dec 6, 2010

Reglan has been prescribed to help treat nausea and vomiting. Growing evidence of severe side effects demands that doctors and patients take a critical look at whether the treatment is appropriate. Read more information about Reglan Lawsuits at our Reglan Information Page.

In February 2009, the FDA issued a black box warning on all metoclopramide products, such as Reglan. This was done to warn the public about the dangers involved with taking the drug over extended periods and in high doses. Studies have shown that using Reglan for periods longer than 12 weeks dramatically increases a patient’s vulnerability to tardive dyskinesia, a neurological condition. Symptoms include involuntary lip smacking, facial grimacing, and tongue thrusting. Many patients also experience difficulty moving their limbs and fingers.

Thousands of people take Reglan to reduce their nausea and prevent vomiting. In doing so, they expose themselves to the risk of developing devastating side effects; tardive dyskinesia is merely one of them. If you have developed side effects induced by these drugs, such as Reglan®, please contact us immediately for a free legal case review.
