Users of the drug Reglan are aware that there are life-threatening side effects that come with taking this medication. The drug was designed to treat short-term heartburn caused by gastroesphageal reflux, a common ailment for many consumers today.
Many users have been diagnosed with Tardive Dyskinesia. Hope may be on the way. A potential treatment for this life-threatening side effect is being developed, which met key safety and effectiveness goals in an ongoing study.
Reglan, if used properly, increases muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract - speeding up the rate which the stomach empties into the intestines. The side effects results should be mild to moderate. For those who exceed the recommended dosage, Tardive Dyskinesia can result.
Symptoms of Tardive Dyskinesia include uncontrollable movements of voluntary muscle groups, constant movements of the tongue, mouth, jaw and cheeks.
