Reglan Injury Attorneys in Charleston, IL
Side Effects & Injuries Caused by Reglan (Metoclopramide)
Reglan, also known as metoclopramide and sold as Maxolon in other countries, is a pharmaceutical drug prescribed to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastroparesis in patients with diabetes. It is also sometimes given to prevent nausea and vomiting. Reglan has been sold since the 1980s and is still sold today. However, it has been linked to serious side effects. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning informing the public that research suggested that Reglan may cause drug-induced movement disorders.
The typical affliction is known as tardive dyskinesia, which usually results after a patient has taken the drug in high doses over a long period of time. Symptoms may include involuntary, repetitive, tic-like movements. These involuntary movements commonly affect the facial muscles. However, the limbs, fingers, and toes may be affected. Sometimes, the hips and torso may be affected.
If you were diagnosed with tardive dyskinesia after taking Reglan, consider involving The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm. We can talk to you about your condition and whether Reglan may be its cause. Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience, as well as the resources it takes to investigate complex drug injury claims.

Tardive Dyskinesia in Patients with Digestive Disorders
The development of tardive dyskinesia frequently occurs in patients who have been treated for digestive disorders. Reglan is typically prescribed to help with the passage of food and is prescribed to both children and adults. Long-term, high dosage use of Reglan has unfortunately been associated with an increased risk of tardive dyskinesia.
