Im allergic to Compazine, was recently prescribed reglan (metoclopramide) and it gave me the same side affects. Was the dr right in giving me relan?

In brief: Probable

You have an idiosyncratic response to these two drugs.
The neuromuscular responses may be quite similar but these two drugs do not share similar allergenic or chemical structure. I can't tell you whether it is appropriate for the doctor to prescribe Reglan (metoclopramide) for you not knowing much about your history or previous response to alternate therapy.
