Metoclopramide

Heartburn can be very serious if it is chronic, and some people need more than just an over the counter medicine to help them. Metoclopramide may be prescribed for those that are having problems with ulcers and sores in the esophagus due to too much acid as well as those that suffer from chronic acid reflux disease.

This medicine speeds up the process of the movement for food through the stomach and into the intestines. This is a pill that is taken orally, and it may need to be taken up to four times per day. It should be taken before each meal and then once again about Ĺ an hour before bed. However, those that only have problems with heartburn during certain times of the day or at bed time may be able to reduce how frequently they need to take it.

It may be necessary to start out with a low dose of Metoclopramide and then for it to be increased. Only take the dose that your doctor recommends and donít stop taking it without their knowledge. This medicine wonít cure heartburn but it can help to reduce the symptoms of it. If you skip doses or stop taking it, then those symptoms are very likely to return.

It may take up to 3 weeks of use before a person notices a significant reduction in problems with heartburn. There are some side effects that users of Metoclopramide may experience. They include nausea or vomiting, loss of appetite, and feelings of fullness in the stomach. These side effects should subside after a few weeks of use. Let your doctor know if they continue or if they are severe in nature. If you experience severe headaches or dizziness then you need to let your doctor know. You may not be able to continue taking this medicine.
