Metoclopramide (Reglan, Emequell) increases muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract. This speeds up the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines. High doses or long-term use of metoclopramide can cause a serious movement disorder that may not be reversible. Symptoms of this disorder include uncontrollable muscle movements.
Typical Dosage: 0.5 mg/kg given orally, by IM or IV.
