My daughter is being treated for gastroperisis with Reglan (metoclopramide). It has been about 4 days with minimal change. How long does Reglan (metoclopramide) usually take?

In brief: Reglan (metoclopramide)

oral Reglan (metoclopramide) is sometimes useful in the treatment of gastroparesis.
Although individual doses begin working immediately, it may take weeks to see the effect in someone who has chronic gastroparesis. If there is no effect, the dosage may need to be adjusted. It is important to watch for side effects while on the medication, in addition. If she is seeing no relief, talk to your doctor. Good luck.
