Reglan

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

My doctor has me on Zelnorm and it isn't doing too well. He is hesitant to put me on Reglan because of side effects. He said that it can cause depresssion and nervous twitches. For those of you on this have you experienced these problems?

My Johns Hopkins doctor suggested I go on it. It's my local doctor that is worried about it.

Thanks for your input!

Nan,

Well now that's scary...I've been on Reglan for about 6 months. I have not noticed any side effects. Sometimes I wonder if I'm not listening to my body!

I took Zelnorm for a while and it upset my tummy. Reglan has worked on me.

My Rheumatologist, who is a great sclero expert, prescribed it to me.

I just did a little research on side effects of Reglan and the percentage that have those adverse effects was .2% (according to one website).

Have a GREAT day!!

Hi Nan,

 

I tend to be very sensitive to medication and almost always get side effects...but I did not get any side effects when I took Reglan. I do hope you have good results with it.

 

Warm wishes,

Heidi

Heidi & Jennifer,

Thanks so much for your replies. I have been sicker on the Zelnorm than I was before. When I told my GI that he said that Zelnorm couldn't make me sick. I think I will give him a call tomorrow.

Have a great evening!

Nan,

Zelnorm made me sick. I narrowed it down and when I cut that out I did not have what was equivilant to IBS.

Nan, I've been on Reglan for a year now and have never had a problem with it. I was in misery before being given Reglan and it has been great. I also have lots of problems with other meds, just not this one.

Good luck to you.

My husband uses Reglan prior to each meal and before bedtime and it has made a tremendous difference in the quality of our lives. He can now eat and not become ill midday. As for the twitching, it's funny you should say that because I noticed it the other night and attributed it to another drug he just started taking. Now, I realize it's not me with the side effects, but I think I speak for him when I say he'd rather twitch just a little than be as sick as he was without it. Good luck!

I will have been on Reglan 2 years in May I believe. No problems. Though the doctor did warn me that they could develop. Just cut down the dose and work your way back up to 4 a day. My next step was to go to Canada for a different prescription. No sides effects that I am aware of. Good wishes it works for you. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl
