On 100mg Zoloft and on reglan (metoclopramide) for gastroparesis, could Zoloft be contributing to the low motility issues?
Zoloft (sertraline) and motility: Gastroparesis is such a severe condition that anything and everything that can be tried to help should be; with that said zoloft (sertraline) seems to have effect on motility in individiauls. If you can handle going off the med after a discussion with your dr you should give it a try to see if it helps - even a little bit good luck! ...Read more

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 (metoclopramide) no help
Two docs have told me TD resulting from Reglan (metoclopramide) 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? The answer may surprise you. Write me: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I was diagnosed with silent reflux & gastroparesis. I was prescribed Reglan (metoclopramide) . Having heart palps and stopped reglan (metoclopramide). Can 500 mg cause this too?
Check dosage: Side effects of reglan (metoclopramide) 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 (metoclopramide) 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

Tough problem: Hi. Why do you have gastroparesis? Diabetes is the most common cause, but there are many causes. Gastroparesis is tough to treat effectively. If you are diabetic, waking up drenched in sweat and shaky makes me suspect nocturnal hypoglycemia. That's a lot to have assume, and I would have to think you'd tell us if you were on insulin. Otherwise, infections and certain malignancies should be consider ...Read more
