Metoclopramide Dosage

General Information on Dosing With Metoclopramide

Some considerations for people taking metoclopramide include the following:
  • Metoclopramide comes in tablet, oral solution (liquid), and injectable form. The tablets are usually taken four times a day (30 minutes before meals and at bedtime). In some situations, less frequent dosing may be appropriate.
  • Make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have any kidney problems, since you may need a lower-than-normal metoclopramide dosage.
  • Metoclopramide is not approved to be used longer than 12 weeks at a time.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or metoclopramide dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
