Reglan, also know at metoclopramide is a drug prescribed to people who have GERD or gatroesophageal reflux disease. It used to relieve heartburn and speed the healing of ulcers and sores in the esophagus, which is the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach.
Side effects from this drug include drowsiness, excessive tiredness, weakness, headache, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, breast enlargement or discharge, missed menstrual period, decreased sexual ability, frequent urination and inability to control urination.
In addition, reports are now coming out that Reglan may cause tardive dyskinesia, which causes uncontrolled movements of facial muscles. In February of 2009, the FDA required Reglan to be sold with a "black box" warning due to these side effects.
