WHAT IS REGLAN®?
Reglan®, or metoclopramide is a drug manufactured by Baxter Healthcare Corporation which was first approved for use in the U.S. in 1980. It is prescribed for digestive-tract problems such as reflux, delayed stomach emptying and nausea. Other named versions of this drug include Maxolon, Degan, Maxeran, Primperan, and Pylomid.
WHY IS REGLAN® PRESCRIBED?
Reglan® is prescribed because it helps prevent damage to the esophagus and stomach when stomach acid is a problem. It also helps speed up the movements of the stomach and upper intestines making food move through the digestive system at a regular pace.
