 1  Vomiting Panic; crying. TERROR; wanting to leave! Red, flushed appearance, sweating. I am writing this review for my 11 y.o. daughter. I had taken her to the E.R. for persistant vomiting. She had already been given 2 Zofran which did not work. I had asked the dr. not to give her compazine for the exact reasons listed above (I had those same reactions to compazine previously; and I DID NOT want her going through that). Little did I know that Reglan would have the same effect on her. Had I known, I would have said not to give her this crap as well. It stopped her vomiting, but I was so sad for how it made her feel. I had to hold her to keep her from jumping out of the hospital bed. She will never get this medicine again! F 11 1 days

History
 1  Tension Headache & Neck Issue on 09/07/2013 I had gone to ER for Tension headache & a Real bad neck issue & they said before I go into the CT scan to take this weird long name started with a M (Metoclopramide) which was generic form of the REGLAN they said (I am no doctor and the Cute Nurse said it will help a lot) So they gave it to me threw an IV they set up for the CT injections Dye, and 10 mins later I had no control over my whole body. felt like I wanted out of my own body & I immediately hit the nurse call button and at this time flopping around in bed & continued to do so for 20 or so minuets ( I wanted to run out and yell at the top of my lungs So bad at this point but I was in a professional setting) the nurse saw me like this finally, the benadryl calmed me down some for me to go to get a CT scan 2 hour later so when they injected the Dye I lost consciousness, woke up & I was done but the scan did not go threw right & had to do it again, same thing, the dye then lost consciousne To anyone who has taken this or reading this tell everyone you know or send a text message to your phone book list and Facebook to not take this or any other form of this Black listed Drug!!!

 1  seasickness suicidal thoughts, loss of appetite, problems swallowing, tongue sticking out, facial grimacing, terrible twitching all over the body: legs, face, neck, trunk, fingers, lips would pucker/smack, heart palpitations, feelings of a seizure about to happen, near-panic attacks, rapid heartbeat, sweating, stiff and painful neck, eyes unable to focus, severe depression and anxiety, shaking like Parkinson's Disease, horrible bizarre dreams, visual hallucinations, terrible mental dullness, lethargy, mind is numb and fuzzy, strong feelings of sleepiness, hopelessness, fearful all the time. Instead of Reglan for seasickness, I would recommend just eating a green apple or some ginger before you get on a ship. This helps and there aren't any long lasting side effects. I took a total of 40 mg of Reglan. This past year was very challenging for me. I spent the first 4-5 months of recovery talking myself out of a suicidal depression and anxiety attacks/fear. The one thing that kept me fighting was my sense of perseverance and hope...that one day things would get better, and they did. Although it's been about a year since I took Reglan, I still have some side effects, but 98% of them are gone. The mental dullness lingers, but I barely twitch. When I twitch, it's very, very small. All of the other side effects are gone. I'm sure to say that by this summer, things will have healed completely. I measured my recovery not in hours or days, but in weeks and months. I've been to several neurologists and one of them suggested that there might be a genetic predisposition/intolerance to metoclopramide, the chemical that's in Reglan. This would explain my temporary condition. When you hurt the brain, it takes a long time to heal because of the blood-brain barrier. I'm posting this to help people. The doctors wanted me to take their medications. I told them no because I wanted my brain to heal naturally. Because I'm not a doctor, I can't tell you what to do with your body. I can only tell you what I myself did to get through this mess: I took Omega-3, E, C, and B complex vitamins. I ate bananas and salmon, went to the gym often, kept a journal, avoided being alone, went outside a lot. Hope this helps F 26 4 days

 1   Ok I realize that this drug is posion, and the fact that it hasnt been banned yet is astounding to say the least, but some of the stuff on here just doesnt sound right. 1 dose of reglan, a drug that is out of your system in a matter of hours ruined your life forever?!?!? If you think this is bad then try a high potency dopamine blocker. This is mild stuff compared with haldol and droperidol which are also used for nausea. This drug is terribl,e and should not be used over a few days if at all, yet one dose is not going to "ruin your life". That is called hypochondria. Its having a bad reaction and thinking you will never go back to normal. A low potency dopamine blocker, one dose will in no way ruin your life. So as long as you did not take it long term, you should be fine. M 25 2 days

 1  administeted by anesthesiologist In 2007 when I was 21 years old I went into surgery for nothing serious and before the anesthesiologist administered the general anesthesia she decided that since I had briefly mentioned I was nauseas, she would give me anti-nausea medication through my veins, without even notifying me of this decision of hers. Well, as a result of the Reglan which she administered I had a full blown cardiac event in which I had tachycardia and i felt like I was dying. My heart rate went over 200 and I was clutching my heart and the back of my neck was on fire, and I ultimately went unconscious. I had never experienced such an overwhelming sense of fear and dread in my life. I have no history of panic attacks or any allergies. But that experience traumatized me because I never fully understood what happened until I read the literature on Reglan. How this drug is available on the market is beyond me. It causes panic in patients and cardiac problems and many anesthesiologists aren't aware of these side effects. What a terrible drug. F 26 1 days

 4  Nausea "Buzzy" Feeling. No better way to describe it, sorry. I was put on this drug originally by my GP for nausea before I had an endoscopy that showed ulcers in my esophagus and stomach. After the GI, I tried at least 6 other anti-nausea meds before I asked if I could go back on the Reglan. It was the only med I found that allowed me to function with little or no side effects. I am aware of the "Black Label" side effects which do make me nervous, but am hopeful that I will only be on the drug for another few weeks while the ulcers are healing. All in all, I have found this drug to be very helpful to me. F 36 2 weeks

 1  Given for migraine in ER I was given Reglan once with benadryl in the ER for a terrible migraine. Within seconds, the worst feeling of panic/dread and most severe anxiety came over me, my heart beat so fast that it hurt.I wanted to kill myself. I thought I was going to lose my mind, it was like something totally hijacked my normal, rational thoughts and there was nothing but feelings of terror, total panic and a desperate need to get the hell away from the hospital. My husband had to stop me from ripping the IV out of my arm so I could leave. I begged him to get me out of there and thankfully he did. It's been a week and I am still having residual panic attacks from the one-time dose. This drug should be banned! F 40 1 days

 4  For digestive/gas issues It helped me with side effects from the gas they put in me when I had a full hysterectomy in April. Now I only take it when I'm afraid something is going to upset my stomach or I have gas so bad I feel like I'm having a heart attack! Had an endoscopy the other day, found out I have ulcers but haven't talked to the Dr. about the biopsies yet. I'm sorry but this dose of Reglan has been the ONLY thing that has helped so far with the issues I've been having for a long time. F 54 5 months

 1  nausea and vomiting My eyes kept looking up even when I closed my eyes. I tried to sit still but my body kept moving on its own. kept smacking my face and smacking my feet together. My boyfriend would try talking to me calmly and I would yell at him. Wanted to desperately take the IV out of my arm and wanted go home. I am not normally an anxious or violent person, but I felt like I had no control over my actions. I was pacing back and forth and talking like a madman when I got out of the hospital bed. This continued for hours. DO NOT TAKE REGLAN. IT'S HELL. Not even once. If they tell you they are going to administer metoclopramide into your iv or give you it in pill form, say NO. it is reglan, the other name for reglan. my boyfriend knew what reglan does because it happened to him, so he lists it on his allergy list. if we knew that they were the same drug it would have never went in me because we would have refused it. took in ER one time through IV for nausea/ vomiting F 19

 1  Severe migraine Soon after getting an IV of reglan, , I became restless. EVERYTHING I did or even though about doing made me want to die, literally. I couldn't stop moving and feeling like something was terribly wrong. My boyfriend left the room to grab my charger and all I could think about doing was ripping the IV out of my arm and running as fast as I could. But I felt so f*ed up I could barley even thing about moving. I finally fell asleep, ( I was given Benedryl and toradol also) about 20 minutes later. I woke up feeling better (no weird feelings, I didn't want to run away, or anything I felt before) but I felt oddly chipper. Fell asleep after I got home and I feel like I can still feel the IV and meds being pumped into my hand and arm where I had the IV. The feeling reglan gave me was the worse I've probably ever felt. I can't imagine going through it all agian. F 22 1 days

 5  TEMPORARY relief from drug overdose after being hospitalized for drug overdose and dehydration, this was given to me for nauseau and it was wonderful, worked great and allowed me to sleep. The negative reviews on reglan, are for people who take it regularly, which is not recommended. But for occasional relief from temporary sickness, this was a great pain reliever, sleep inducer.

It was on a post in Jan 2008 and I still can't believe this POISON is still being giving to innocent patients! Filed a complaint with the DEA because 2 other people besides myself in the same county had similar effects the same month? High BP 180/115, heart rate 160, then everything went black.

 1  Nausea Long term anxiety and feelings of derealization. etc. Anyone experiencing long term mental and emotional side effects please look to the therapy in the link below. Detoxing is also very helpful to get this drug out of your system completely. Your HPA axis has been set off by this chemical trauma, Reglan crosses your blood-brain barrier. Also supplement with a B complex to get your proper levels of B5 and B6 to help the feelings of akathisia some get. Good luck to all. This is an evil drug.

A suit was filed over 2 years ago for my husbands suicide while taking the medication. I recently been told by the lawyers that they want to dismiss the case. They say its a viable case with just cause but to expensive to take to trial. I do not know how this will turn out and he is not hear to defend himself but no matter what happens my story will be told. Anyone wants to chat I would appreciate an email to hear you personal stories. This drug needs to be off the market and people need to act against the big pharma putting profits before peoples lives.

 2  Gastroparesis Burning/stabbing joint pain, restless legs during day that transitioned to all-out thrashing at night, electrical "buzzing" feeling up and down legs/arms/back of head, itchy feet, anxiety, severe insomnia, total loss of motivation to be productive, complete loss of sex drive Does this medication stimulate my stomach to overcome its paralysis and force food through into my intestinal tract? Yes. Am I going to approach my doctors tomorrow and tell them to install a feeding tube because I refuse to take Reglan anymore due to the horrific side effects (and due to Domperidone not working for me)? Yup. I've had a lot of serious health problems, but nothing has been as difficult to deal with emotionally and psychologically like the side effects from Reglan. I'd rather go through cancer treatment again a thousand times over than EVER use this drug again. My advice: if you take it once and immediately feel like you're going to jump out of your skin (or at least can run laps despite being ill), tell your doctors immediately, drink as much water as possible for the following week to flush it out of your system, and list it as a severe drug allergy with all of your medical providers. At this point I'm just hoping the damage isn't permanent. F 30 20 days

 1  digestive disorder Suicidal thoughts, akathesia, severe depression, severe anxiety, agorophobia, irritability, memory loss, zero appetite for 3 weeks This medicine was prescribed to me almost 2 years ago. I have been through hell as everyone else describes, including a trip to the pshyc ward. I have made marked improvement but am forever changed. Before I took this drug, my life was amazing, now i struggle to drag myself out of the house. I have tried benzos, anti depressants, supplements and anyhting else that might have worked, and now I have to go through withdrawal from benzos that I had to take for over a year to be able to function. If you have recently been affected by this terrible nightmare of a drug, please try to take as little medicine as possible to get through it as I ahve learned that the meds that are meant to counteract this will put you through hell when you have to come off of them also. This drug should be illegal and its a shame that there is little that can be done to get it off the shelves. God bless all that are suffering M 30 45 days

I had headaches associated with it and didnt think anything of it as I have had this 3 times in the past.. I received this via IV and almost as soon as it hit my blood I started feeling horrible.. Even with the benadryl and toradol I still felt horrible. Only slept 6 hours that night and I am on day 5 afterwards and still having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep... I have to take sleep aides and I have NEVER took meds like this before. I hate meds and this has really pushed me to hate them even more...

 1  migraine Hell! I was given Raglan along with Benedril through an IV in the ER because I had such a severe migraine that I kept throwing up my normal medication (Zomig). The moment Reglan started entering my body, it felt like I was being filled with icy air. I thought there was an earthquake - the bed was shaking. Then I felt like my body was not solid anymore and the feeling was so horrible I felt like I was going to die... I wanted to rip the IV out of my arm; I started screaming; I had bad tachycardia and constant tremors. I kept crying: "Please make it stop!" The doctors gave me Ativan and sat by me for half an hour as I continued to writhe on the bed feeling like I wanted to crawl out of my skin or run, run, run... I thought I was going to either end up dead or in a psychiatric hospital. Doctors NEED to warn patients before giving them this nightmare of a drug!!! F 37 1 days

 1  acid indigestion, stomach clearing Given it twice, different occasions, in hospital without knowing what it was. Immediately a horrible sense of anxiety and "coming out of skin" feeling. Hard to describe. Benadryl given, doctor said some people are 'allergic' to it. Weeks later still having sense of crawlies and 'fragile' emotions; like I'm on edge of losing it. Perhaps worst sensation I have ever experienced. And I've had some doozies. Will NEVER take again. Wondering why the anxiety and fear are symptoms. Kind of understand the muscle crawlies: it causes stomach to empty fast, must stimulate muscles. CAN THE SYMPTOMS LAST INDEFINITELY? ANY ANTIDOTES??? F 47 2 days

 1  acid reflux I started taking reglan last February at 20 years old because my doctor told me it would be good for my acid reflux.little did I know it was gonna ruin my life. In January I was a perfectly normal girl and by February everything changed.I started feeling extremely anxious and paranoid. Since it said on the bottle call your doctor immediately if worsening feelings of anxiety, depression, confusion, etc. Occur. So I did and he refused to believe it was because of reglan.I thought the symptoms would go away but they just got worse and worse. At the beginning I had daily panic attacks at night and extreme anxiety every day I also suffered a bout of depression. I would shake a lot and my fingers would move by themselves. It was all physical at first but then I started getting vivid thoughts, images, etc.I still have extreme anxiety and the symptoms that come along with it.I've been dealing with this for about 11 months now. It's the worst nightmare anyone can imagine and to think all of this started because I wanted to feel better and listened to my doctor. Stay as far away from reglan as possible it is an extremely dangerous drug!!! F 21 6 weeks

 1  Heartburn and acid indigestion Horrendous and debilitating anxiety attacks combined with deep depression. My doctor refused to believe these side effects were due to this drug as they only appeared after I had stopped taking it. I have never felt like this in my life. I didn't move from my bed, other than to use the toilet, for a full week and it has taken me six weeks to recover. I have been taking Citalopram and Mirtzapine during this time and feel that these antidepressants have really helped me.

 1  increase breast milk Update***I have cut out caffeine, aspartame and other artificial sweeteners. I was experiencing an improvement until I had a glass of wine day before yesterday, then again yesterday. I had a panic attack last night. Complete with suicidal thoughts. I have no desire to hurt myself, but I could picture it in my mind. This is no ME AT ALL. I am still pissed I ever took this drug and that my Dr doesn't believe me when I tell him this is the problem. Very glad I found this site where I can see in black and white that everything that has been happening for the past 2 months is not because I'm crazy, but because of this DIRTY DRUG that is being prescribed to nursing mothers. WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU PUT A HORMONAL NEW MOTHER ON THIS HORRIBLE DRUG??? Good luck to everyone who is suffering. This DRUG IS HORRIBLE. If you or anyone you love is ever prescribed this medication, immediately slap the shyt out of whoever tries to give it to you. Good luck to everyone living this nightmare. F 34 8 weeks

 1  Increase Breastmilk ANXIETY, PANIC ATTACKS, DEPRESSION, IRRATIONAL/VIVID THOUGHTS AND FEARS, CHEST PAIN After 8 weeks of being on this med, I began to feel foggy and felt like i was "walking funny" as though I was walking a little to the left and couldn't stop myself, so I stopped taking the pills. 3 days later I was in the ER with a panic attack. I had unexplained chest pains and within 2 weeks had 2 chext xrays and EKGs done. I had blood work done to check my thyroid function, all appeared normal. I began having very irrational fears, and thoughts that were embarrassing in their idiocy. I was unable to make them stop. I had panic attacks in the past, but had not had one since I was 5 months pregnant. These were not normal panic attacks that lasted 20 to 30 minutes and went away, these were long drawn out full day events of being in a constant state of panic. IT IS HORRIBLE. I began to seek treatment after the 3rd event of random panic. Every day as i would leave my house to go to work in the morning, I would have debilitating fearful thoughts that would usually result in a panic attack at my desk. I began to be afraid to leave the house alone, I was afraid to spend time with or hold my baby. i was afraid of changing her diaper. I went to a therapist who referred me to my OB for Postpartum Depression. OB stated this was NOT NORMAL and referred me to a psychiatrist believing I need to be medicated. My psychiatrist has never HEARD of Reglan, and therefore does not believe me when I tell him I believe this is what's causing the problem as i was FINE for 3 F 34 8 weeks

 1  to increase milk supply Shortly after starting this prescription I started feeling like I had no energy. I kept calling my dr's office telling them and asking if they could do a test for anemia or something. Something was just not right. About a week later I started having horrible insomnia and lots of anxiety. I soon started being very depressed, anxious, having crazy thoughts, it was AWFUL!! I became like a zombie. Then came suidcidal thoughts. Despite going to doctors and them knowing I was on this, they didn't take me off--said it was postpartum depression. I had never had depression in my life despite going through some pretty awful things. Finally one day my husband had intuition or something and decided to throw them in the trash! It took a while for me to get over the withdrawl symptoms and a long time to realize exactly what happened. I thought I was a horrible person. I would not recommend this medication to anyone!!

 1  migraine I went in with the worst pain in my head neck and eye. I refused to do a spinal tap so they said they would treat it like a migraine and gave me reglan. I freaked out and have felt weird ever since. My headache came back instantly the next morning. Hasn't went away. I'm now on my 6th day with a headache. Plus I was told you can't take it if you have stomach ulcers, and guess what, I have crohns disease. I don't even understand why they gave it to me, I looked it up and nowhere does it say for a migraine F 20 1 days

 1  Migraine I was given this drug via IV in the ER for severe migraine last night. Within 30 minutes I ripped the IV out of my arm and left. I didn't know what happened, but I have been having panic attacks ever since I haven't slept yet. When I looked up the effects of the drug it looks like I have all the side effects of this med. I cannot even believe the doctor or nurse didn't give me a heads up on this med. worse yet, my migraine is coming back. F 29 1 days

 1  gastroparesis depression, anxiety, insomnia My experience with reglan was two months, but I hope this will be of help to someone going through reglan misery. I started taking reglan for gastoparesis in May of last year. By late July, for the first time in my life, I was experiencing severe anxiety and depression. I didn't connect it to the reglan (drs. were no help) until Sept. 1. Once I made the connection, I was so distressed that I quit the reglan cold turkey on Sept. 1. (I'm not necessarily recommending this - I've heard you're supposed to taper off, but I wanted it out of my system, and I had a good support system around me - people who would constantly remind me it was the drug making me miserable.) Basically, September and October were a sad and anxious blur for me. I started to feel better in early November, and I kept feeling better as time went by. Now it's July again, and I've been 100% recovered for some time. The gastroparesis of course came back, and this may be really idiosyncratic to me, but Veganmax protein shake by Lifetime Fitness gives me gp relief (I also take motilium and HCL), and, unlike with reglan, I'm not looking for a bridge to jump off of. My heart goes out to everyone currently devastated by reglan - my reglan depression was by far the scariest and worst thing that has ever happened to me - but the drug did leave my system, and I made a full recovery. I also decided not to take anti-depressants during my recovery, as I'd never needed them before. I don't know if that's the right answer F 40 2 months

 1  Migrane OMFG please nobody ever take this. I went to the ER last night for a severe migrane. Dr gave me 20mg Reglan through iv.Within 10 minutes i wanted to jump out a window. I couldnt sit still wanted to rip my skin off..I ripped the iv out of my arm and tried to run out. Drs got me back in bed then the violent leg shaking started. I had no relief at all. I told drs and they said it would pass. They let me drive home i dunno how i didnt crash my car. I really thought about cutting my skin off bc i felt my insides wouldnt stop moving. The aniexty was getting worse and worse. I finally got home and tried taking a hot bath i couldnt sit still. I got out and was pacing back and forth for 20 mins and had to keep laying down.and curling into a ball and shaking.I thought i was going to die i couldnt take it anymore. My husband had some XXANEX omg within 10 mins i started to calm down. But did not sleep insomnia was insane. It has been almost 24 hrs since ive taken it still having some anxiety and very blah.

 1  Nausea Side effects experienced with REGLAN: This drug is the devil! No really, it is. I don't even know why this RX was given to me but was by my doc. I was having issues w/ keeping food down but no more than anyone who can keep food down w/ the flu. I took it as soon as I got home from the doc and it knocked me out completely for about 30 min after that all the jumping of the legs sat in, twitching, I even went to stand up twice and put my right leg down only to bust my butt. It was like I couldnt control my leg. I was taking a RX cough syrup and I thought the bad reaction was coming from that. Nope! After a few more days of taking the Reglan I figured out it was the problem. What makes me mad is why would a doc prescribe this mess for someone who does have the medicinal condition that have been menchioned on this thread? I'm hoping to get it out of my system though I haven't been able to find out how long that is? I took it for 2 days then stopped then took it again a wk later which was today realizing moments after I took it the cough syrup wasn't the problem so I only have 1 dose today in my system. But it has been a horrific day. The twitching, ticking, restless legs, you feel like you are coming out of your skin. Do not take this RX. It is really dangerous. F 30 3 days

 1  To increase milk supply Inconsistent bouts of depression after taking medication for about 50 days. Worse than side effects was the WITHDRAWAL I experienced after stopping the medication - debilitating anxiety, depression, depersonalization. I felt like I could not go on, could barely take care of my 3 children, could not feel any joy, felt like my soul had been taken away, I was not myself, and it was the worst feeling I have ever experienced in my life. Took 2-3 months to fully recover from withdrawal. If you believe you are experiencing Reglan withdrawal, please have hope, I DID GET BETTER and you can too, it will take some time and there are medications that can help. Please see my comments for full explanation and contact me by email if you need support, I contacted another patient from this site when I was suffering and it was incredibly helpful! I was prescribed reglan through a lactation consultant to increase my breast milk supply, my baby was 7 months old, my milk supply returned almost immediately, it was very effective. Was given a refill after 40 days without incident, and then around 50-60 days I began to experience bouts of depression - they were inconsistent, occuring every other day or two straight days followed by two or three normal days. The depression was uncomfortable - I was fatigued and listless, had trouble getting through the day. Went from 10mg 3xday to 10mg 2xday to see if the side effects would lessen, they didn't so I decided to discontinue the Reglan - no one had told me you MUST wean off this medication and within 24-48 hours I began to experience the most horrible psychiatric withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal started about mid-day, I felt racy, anxious, depressed, couldn't figure out what was wrong, by dinner time I was a wreck, I had never felt this way my entire life. Then the withdrawal symptoms mysteriously dissappeared by bedtime. This pattern continued each day and got worse so I sought medical help but was told there was no such thing as Reglan withdrawal. I was finally treated with medication, first Xanax, then Klonopin, and Zoloft and I'm here to say that it's taken over 3 months but I have finally recovered from the withdrawal and gotten off all medications. Please feel free to contact me for more details of my experience, I really want to help others going through this. F 35 60 days
