Reglan Tardive Dyskinesia Lawsuit

The drug metoclopramide—sold under the brand name Reglan—has been identified as a possible cause of muscle problems. If you have taken Reglan and you believe it caused you to develop muscle problems, or some other negative side effect, you need a sympathetic advocate who will represent only your interests—and who will make the process of obtaining compensation for your injuries as painless as possible. The Rottenstein Law Group knows this, and we want you to believe it. We might be the Reglan law firm you are looking for.

What Is Reglan, and What Is It Prescribed For?

Reglan is the brand name for the drug that contains metoclopramide. Products containing metoclopramide are used to treat a number of stomach and esophageal problems such as heartburn, acid reflux, nausea, vomiting, and diabetic gastroparesis. Metoclopramide first gained FDA approval under the name Reglan, and it has been available in generic forms since 1982. It works to treat gut problems by reducing the sensation of sickness and by decreasing the amount of time it takes for the stomach to empty into the intestines. Read more

Reglan Might Cause Persistent, Irreversible Side Effects

Taking metoclopramide has been identified as a possible cause of a muscle problem called tardive dyskinesia—a condition that involves involuntary, uncontrollable, unstoppable, unusual movements of one’s muscles, especially the muscles of the face. Read more

Reglan Users Are Filing Lawsuits

Because of the tardive dyskinesia risk posed by Reglan, many users have sued metoclopramide manufacturers around the country. In June 2009, a group of plaintiffs tried to convince the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to consolidate their Reglan lawsuits into a single multidistrict litigation. Plaintiffs in New Jersey, however, were able to merge their cases into that state’s court’s equivalent, multicounty litigation (MCL), in 2010 before Superior Court Judge Carol E. Higbee. As of February 2013, the MCL contained 782 cases, but none has proceeded to trial.

    When I was pregnant with my son, my OB put me on reglan because I couldn't eat due to nausea. I took it 2 times a day until I had my son. The day after he was born, I noticed a birth defect in his eye. The pediatrician called it a "Coloboma". It's where the iris of his eye does not go all the way around his pupil. Instead his pupil looks like a key hole. I would be very interested to know if this drug contributed to my son's birth defect.

    I was 6 weeks pregnant with my second daughter, when I was vomiting constantly. My doctor gave me Reglan, and now my eye jumps, my leg twitches when I sleep. I thought it was normal or because of nerves. Since I read the your page, I would like to be contacted. Thank You
