Metocloprimide

Were you looking for information about Metoclopramide? Metocloprimide is a common misspelling of metoclopramide.
 
Metoclopramide (Reglan®) is approved for treating several conditions, including diabetic gastroparesis and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It has a few actions in the digestive tract; it causes the esophageal sphincter to tighten and the pyloric sphincter to relax, and it increases the muscular contractions of the stomach and small intestines. An injectable form of metoclopramide is also available to help relieve nausea and vomiting (due to chemotherapy or surgeries) by blocking dopamine receptors in the brain.
