Metoclopramide (Reglan®) is a prescription drug approved for the short-term treatment of diabetic gastroparesis and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It helps with these conditions by causing the esophageal sphincter to tighten, relaxing the pyloric sphincter, and increasing the muscular contractions of the stomach and small intestines. Metoclopramide is typically taken four times a day and comes in tablet, liquid, and injection form. Potential side effects include drowsiness, impotence, and fatigue.
