Diagnosed with GERD and not getting relief from protonix (pantoprazole) 40mg 2x/day. Was prescribed Metoclopramide syrup. Can I take the syrup with the protonix (pantoprazole)?

In brief: Reconsider this Rx

Metaclopramide (Reglan) is a pro-motility agent to improve esophageal and stomach emptying.
However, please read the side effect profile of this medication--it may make you reconsider using it casually, especially if to be taken over a long period of time, and at several times daily. Is GERD your only indication for the drug?
