What Medications Are Prescribed To Gastroparesis Patients
Domperidone: There are few medicines available that speed up gastric emptying. Domperidone is the most useful and is not available for sale in the USA. Metoclopramide (reglan) can be used, but has serious neurological side effects. The e-mycin drugs can be used , but often tolerance builds quite quickly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: I would assume that depends on the cause of gastroparesis. If this is acute and self limited due to a viral illness then that should resolve in days to weeks. If it is related to a chronic condition then that may depend on how well controlled the chronic condition may be (i.e. diabetes). Sorry but cannot give you a definitive answer ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe for a patient to receive a TPN feed through a GJ Tube?My sis has severe Mastocytosis & Gastroparesis, and enteral feeding tube didn't work.
Not a question of : safety, rather why give a parenteral feeding, enterally, might not be absorbed efficiently and an expensive preparation would be wasted. The G-J tube is meant to bypass the stomach and go right into the small intestine, there are preparations meant to be used this way that don't need stomach digestive process, ask the doctors/dietician about, wish you and your sister wellness ...Read more
It may: While the vast majority of meds dissolve in your stomach and are able to be adsorbed there, some meds, especially delayed or extended release medications, may need the different ph of other parts of your intestine to dissolve/activate.

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
Tested + for SBBO, been diag. With gastroparesis, weeks b4. And fatty liver, I have trouble urinating , GI prescribed amocy + bentyl, (dicyclomine) I am in need hel?
Making a guess..: with all the abbreviations. Presume you have been diagnosed with small bowel bacterial overgrowth, and amoxicillin and bentyl (dicyclomine) have been prescribed. The use of antibiotics, for how long, and which one(s) is quite controversial in this condition. This is a reasonable first trial. The bentyl (dicyclomine) should work as a bowel anti-spasmodic, relaxing the stomach & intestine. Continue to work with your doctor. ...Read more
