Were you looking for information about Metoclopramide? Metoclopramida is a common misspelling of metoclopramide.
Metoclopramide (Reglan®) is a medication licensed for the short-term treatment of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and diabetic gastroparesis. It is available by prescription only and comes in tablet, liquid, and injection form. The drug works by tightening the esophageal sphincter, relaxing the pyloric sphincter, and increasing the muscular contractions of the stomach and small intestines. Before your healthcare provider prescribes metoclopramide, make sure he or she is aware if you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, or have congestive heart failure.
