As a Corpus Christi Reglan lawyer, I try to remain aware of the problems with Reglan and other medications. Reglan, which is also known by its generic name, metoclopramide has been widely prescribed by doctors to treat gastrointestinal disorders such as acid reflux, morning sickness and nausea. It is also prescribed to treat a person’s short-term heartburn, which is caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease. Reglan and its generic may also be used to help speed up gastric emptying in diabetes patients. Reglan functions as a dopamine antagonist, which raises lower esophageal sphincter pressure.
