The FDA has recently issued a warning regarding serious side effects from the use of Metoclopramide products such as Reglan. The most serious disorder associated with taking Reglan is a disease called tardive dyskinesia. Tardive dyskinesia is a movement disorder that is characterized by involuntary movements of the arms, legs, head, face and other parts of the body. Tardive dyskinesia is very serious and has no known cure and no treatment.
The FDA warnings come after various reports linking tardive dyskinesia with the use of Reglan in both adults and infants. The disease can show itself even after the patient has stopped taking Reglan for a period of time. There may be a link between the length of time that the patients have taken Reglan products with the seriousness of the tardive dyskinesia.
