In brief: Metoclopramide

It only works within about a half hour of taking it as its in and out of your system relatively quickly.
Side effects are related to dose. If you haven't yet had any side effects, as long as you are under the care of your physician, you may continue to take it. Hopefully there will be some newer promotility agents approved by the FDA soon.
