A team of class action attorneys and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into Reglan and other metoclopramide containing drugs used to treat gastrointestinal disorders, heartburn, acid reflux or gastroesphageal reflux disease (GERD), diabetic gastroparesis, nausea and vomiting, which have been linked to tardive dyskinesia.
In February of 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") announced that manufacturers of Reglan and other metoclopramide containing drugs must add a boxed warning to their drug labels about the risk of tardive dyskinesia with long-term or high-dose use of the drug.
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.
Metoclopramide works by speeding up the movement of the stomach muscles, thus increasing the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines. It has been sold in tablet form, syrups and injections. Names of metoclopramide-containing products include Reglan Tablets, Reglan Oral Disintegrating Tablets, Metoclopramide Oral Solution, and Reglan Injection.
If you or your loved ones have ever taken Reglan or other metoclopramide containing drugs and have suffered from any symptoms or side effects potentially associated with the use of such drugs, including tardive dyskinesia, you may be entitled to compensation.**
**If you have used Reglan or other metoclopramide containing drugs and suffer from any of the Reglan or other metoclopramide containing drugs side effects, we urge you to promptly consult your doctor or physician for an evaluation.
