anyone with ibs had experience of usinf metoclopramide 10mg for treatment of nausea? I have ibs for which I take 10mg of amitriptyline nightly and that has seemed to help quite a lot ... I have been experiencing acid reflux and nausea a lot tho at which the dr prescribed omeprazole 20mg daily to calm my stomach acid And 10mg metoclopramide as and when I feel nauseous im just wondering if I should expect it to make my ibs worse or not ?! :/
I have IBS with severe colon spasms and after reading how metoclopramide works (it increases muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract which speeds up the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines) you could NOT get me to take it if you paid me as my digestive system works too fast half the time as it is.
I do still get acid reflux and heartburn though and usually a cup of ginger tea helps but when it doesn't I take an OTC pill containing ranitidine and that works every time.
The thing to remember is that it can cause tardive dyskinesia. You couldn't pay me to take it either, not with the cramping and the td.
