Hi folks

This report from the EU (Medicine's Agency) has recommended that Metaclopramide not be used for long term treatment. The recommendation is now for short term use (e.g. post op or chemo nausea) only, due to the risk of neurological side effects. Presumably the USA (FDA) may follow suit on this advice?

If anyone is taking this on a regular basis you may wish to discuss with your GP/PCP about whether to continue or find an alternative.

MMM-

I stay away from Reglan completely. I even refused it when I was in the hospital. It gives me weird facial muscle ticks. some doctors use it for nausea to because it moves things out of the stomach faster. I have run across nurses who use it for nausea, but have no idea about the side effects or how it works. Someone with severe slow stomach emptying might need it, but I avoid it at all costs. Just my opinion though.

Take care,
Bill

My doctor also wanted me to take it and I refused. I have a career that would be affected greatly if I were to develop muscle twitches, so it's not even an option. I didn't sense my doctor understood my concern.

A few years ago my doctor wanted me to take it. I was really afraid of it, didn't want to start twitching and have damage that couldn't be reversed. To bad there isn't something safe to take in it's place.

Im on ativan and getting severely dehydrated at night which probably isnt helping my throat condition. My doctor suggested this as well but there is no way i want to be hypersalivating un-naturally. Just another problem waiting to happen

It's very important to stay hydrated. Dehydration itself can cause many health issues. I learned the hard way what dehydration can do, so please keep yourself hydrated.

Take care,

Hey there,  I am still here and reading everyday but with the 4 forums and all I keep me pretty busy ................
 
I had to pop in to tell you I love to say "Metaclopramide" but it rarely is a word I use in conversation.  smhair
 
Love and hugs,
