Reglan (active ingredient metoclopramide hydrochloride) is used for the treatment of heartburn in patients with gastroesophageal reflux. This drug is usually prescribed after the patient failed to benefit from other drugs prescribed for the same purpose. Reglan is intended for short-term relief of the symptoms. It works by speeding up the process of emptying the stomach, which promotes significant improvement of the symptoms. When you buy Reglan online, you should keep in mind that 12 weeks is the maximum period during which the treatment can be continued. After that, you should talk to your doctor to see if it makes sense to carry on taking Reglan for your symptoms. Another aspect every patient needs to think about before they buy metoclopramide hydrochloride (Reglan) is the presence of any other medical issues that can interfere with the success of the treatment. The following conditions should be taken into account: Parkinson's disease, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease or diabetes. For Reglan to be most efficient, you should take it half an hour before meals. You may need to take the last dose at bedtime without a meal following it. You may also be recommended to take Reglan only when you have a meal that would typically cause heartburn. When you buy Reglan online, make sure you pick one form you will be taking. Combining two different forms of Reglan (such as tablets and syrup) is unacceptable.
Reglan can cause side effects that will differ in intensity in different patients. Patients taking Reglan must report any of the following rare side effects to their doctor: rigid muscles, confusion, sweating, jaundice, seizure, anxiety and hallucinations. Mild side effects of Reglan are quite rare but still possible, including drowsiness, restlessness, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and headache. Those usually tend to go away soon without bothering the patient too much.
