What is Reglan® ?

Reglan® is an oral and an injectable medication that helps the stomach empty its contents into the small intestine by increasing the contractions of those organs. For most people, it is a very effective medication to treat slow stomach emptying in cases of:

  • Heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Nausea from chemotherapy
  • Nausea and vomiting after surgery
  • In patients who have kidney disease
  • In patients with liver disease such as jaundice or cirrhosis
  • Migraine headaches
  • To help the stomach empty its contents before an x-ray exam
  • In diabetics whose stomachs empty too slowly

But, the medication has some serious side effects. One of these is tardive dyskinesia, a condition that may not cease even when the drug is discontinued. Tardive dyskinesia is characterized by peculiar motions of the face and sometimes fingers as well. These motions may include:

  • Grimacing
  • Rapid eye blinking
  • Pursing or smacking of the lips
  • Twitching fingers

Symptoms might continue long after a patient stops taking Reglan®. With careful management, in some cases, symptoms might improve or discontinue over time.

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with tardive dyskinesia after taking Reglan®, you may want to speak with an attorney about the possibility of filing a Reglan® lawsuit. A lawsuit would seek compensation to pay for your medical bills, lost wages and suffering.

Who Is Eligible to File a Reglan® Lawsuit?

Whatever your reason for taking Reglan®, if you suffer from tardive dyskinesia, especially if the condition does not stop after you stop taking the medication, you should talk to a Reglan® lawyer about your right to financial compensation.
