yes. In my personal opinion Reglan is a nasty drug. One of the WORST reactions I've ever seen to a drug was to a person on Reglan. It was given IV that time but it definitely has some nasty side effects in certain people. There is a black box warning now that this drug can cause tardive dyskinesia which involves involuntary movements. Stop taking this drug NOW and call your Dr and let him/her know what is going on. Hopefully these movements will subside once you are off this drug but in some cases they can be permanent so do stop the drug now and inform your Dr that you were having involuntary jerking and that you have stopped the medication. There are other meds that work well that can be used in its place.
Hi Peg... Dzoobaby is absolutely correct... Reglan is a terrible drug. It has what is called extrapyramidal side effects which means that it causes parkinsonian type movements, ie... twitching, involuntary movements. It also acts centrally (in the central nervous system... the brain) causing anxiety.
Bad drug. I would ask your doc to take u off of it. For what reason has the doc put u on it... nausea? or for a sluggish GI tract? Anyway..let us know and good luck to u and hope u feel better very soon.
