Metoclopramide (Reglan, Emequell)

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.
