INTRODUCTION

REGLAN contains Metoclopramide which belongs to a group of medicines called anti-emetics. It is used to prevent delayed nausea and vomiting (occur after surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy) and also treats nausea and vomiting which occurs with a migraine. This medicine works on a part of your brain that prevents you from nausea and vomiting.   

Metoclopramide acts by opposing the effect of dopamine in the central nervous system and other organ systems. This action helps to reduce feelings of sickness (nausea) and helps to stop vomiting.

REGLAN will be administered by your doctor or nurse. Before receiving this medicine, tell your doctor if you have or had any kidney, liver or heart impairment, epilepsy or bleeding disorders. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers consult your doctor before using the medicine. It is not advisable for use in children below 1 year of age because it may increase the uncontrollable movements. The common side effects are drowsiness, uncontrollable movements, restlessness and weakness. Do not drive or handle any machines that require mental attention.

USES OF REGLAN

HOW REGLAN WORKS
