Thrown up almost every day for a year. In sept I was diagnosed W/ gastroparesis. What else could cause this? Diet changes and meds like Reglan no help
Told my gastroparesis can't be treated due to being allergic to reglan. My t 1/2 time = 342min . What other options can I ask my dr about?
Lots of options...: Depending on the nature of your gastroparesis (dysmotility versus partial obstruction) treatment options may include: gastric pacemaker insertion, pro-motilin drugs like Erythromycin (yes, the antibiotic), experimental protocol therapies (there are several), and medications that are not fda-approved but available outside the us (like zelnorm, domperidone). Discuss merits of each with your doctor. ...Read more

Two docs have told me TD resulting from Reglan use for idiopathic gastroparesis is reversible, and two say it's not. Who's correct?
All 4 are correct!: Bazinga! Everyone wins here except the patient who ends up with the permanent side effects of TD. I know cuz I've seen it happen & it's not fun. Darn thing is, we can't predict who'll reverse & who won't. If it reverses when med's stopped then? REVERSIBLE! If it doesn't then, NOT REVERSIBLE. Better question- MUST you TREAT?

I was diagnosed with silent reflux & gastroparesis. I was prescribed Reglan . Having heart palps and stopped reglan. Can 500 mg cause this too?
Check dosage: Side effects of reglan can be quite serious, but heart palpitations is not one of them. However, I am concerned about the dosage you are saying. Is that over 24 hr? 10mg every four hours is the higher end of normal, and Reglan is not a medicine you want to take for long periods of time. Please see the Rx'ing MD regarding this, and to go over your other medications and symptoms. ...Read more
