No, metoclopramide does not have narcotics in it.
Metoclopramide increases muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract. This speeds up the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines.
Metoclopramide is used short-term to treat heartburn caused by gastroesophageal reflux in people who have used other medications without relief of symptoms.
Metoclopramide is also used to treat slow gastric emptying in people with diabetes (also called diabetic gastroparesis), which can cause nausea, vomiting, heartburn, loss of appetite, and a feeling of fullness after meals.
Metoclopramide is not a narcotic. Be careful metoclopramide (Reglan) has been proven to cause Tardive Dyskonesia and Restless Leg Syndrome so approach with caution. I got both these conditions from this drug and it is posted on TV and ads that this drug causes these problems and they are permanent issues. Take care marjorie zych
