Reglan, also known as Metoclopramide, is a prescription drug used to treat infant reflux disorder.
The FDA has recently issued a warning that links tardive dyskinesia to Reglan use in infants. Tardive dyskinesia is a serious side effect that is characterized by involuntary and repetitive body movements. It can cause random facial and body movements as well as swaying type movements that are not controllable. Tardive dyskinesia has similar movements to those found with Tourette syndrome.
Manufacturers of medications such as Reglan have been aware of the possible serious side effects for many years yet still continued to manufacture and market the drug. If your baby has tardive dyskinesia as a result of taking Reglan you must contact a Reglan attorney immediately. A Reglan attorney knows how to get payment for your medical bills and for your infant's pain and suffering as a result of tardive dyskinesia caused by Reglan. The attorney has experience in working with drug liability cases and will be able to get you and your family the money you need.Contact Our Reglan Lawyers Today »
Tardive dyskinesia may show up in individuals long after they have stopped taking Reglan. This can lead to improper diagnosis in some cases. The symptoms of involuntary movements may seem to come and go and may worsen and then almost disappear. This is common with tardive dyskinesia patients. There is no cure for tardive dyskinesia and there is no known treatment that works to eliminate the uncontrollable body movements.
Tardive dyskinesia in an infant can be quite alarming. The parents may not understand why the baby is making the sudden or repetitive movements. If your baby took Reglan for acid reflux or colic you should be watchful for these symptoms in your infant. There is also the possibility that tardive dyskinesia can occur in infants due to the use of Reglan by their mother either during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Reglan is commonly prescribed to pregnant women who are having severe nausea and other symptoms of morning sickness. An off-label use for Reglan has also been to help women who are breastfeeding produce more milk.Do You Have A Reglan Side Effect Lawsuit? »
