Reglan: Side Effects and Injuries
Reglan is a popular drug prescribed for the treatment of acid reflux disease. However, Reglan may cause serious side effects, particularly when used longer than the approved short-term use of 4 to 12 weeks. It is estimated that 30% of users take Reglan for at least 12 months. Reglan is also approved to be prescribed only after less aggressive treatments fail. Unauthorized long-term use of Reglan or prescribing or administering Reglan in cases where a milder treatment would have been effective may result in injury or even death in some extreme cases.
Reglan has been associated with causing the development of Tardive Dyskinesia, a neurological disorder that causes involuntary movement in the hands and face. There is currently no known cure or treatment for Tardive Dyskinesia. Reglan may also be linked to Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome, another neurological condition that is often fatal.
