Reglan® (generic name Metoclopramide) has been linked to a serious condition called tardive dyskinesia which causes involuntary movements of the mouth (tongue and lip smacking), face, neck and sometimes the arms, trunk or legs. It can also cause Parkinson’s-like symptoms, Dystonia, Akathisia, Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome and other involuntary muscular reactions. Those at greatest risk include the elderly, especially older women, and people who have been on the drug for a long time.
How can Reglan® injure you and your loved ones?
Tardive dyskinesia is characterized by involuntary, repetitive movements of the extremities, or lip smacking, grimacing, tongue protrusion, rapid eye movements or blinking, puckering and pursing of the lips, or impaired movement of the fingers. These symptoms are rarely reversible and there is no known treatment.
