There was an ad on the forum about treatment for gastroparesis. I have had this for five years, so I searched this ad. There is a new form of metoclopramide out called Metozolv-ODT. I read the prescribing information and this is the same form of the brand name "Reglan" except it is a pill that dissolves under the tongue. It carries the new box warnings by the FDA because it is known to cause tardive dyskinesia. This condition is usually not reversible once it starts. I used Reglan for 2 years and then I started to have uncontrollable movements in my feet, so I stopped taking it. Fortunately, the movement stopped when I went off the drug. The new form also claims to treat refractory GERD, when PPI's now longer help. I would never take this drug again. I have severe GERD and it takes 3 different meds to treat it. Reglan does work but there could be a price to pay for using it. Use with extreme caution.
