  metoclopramide (Reglan) PHARMACOLOGIC CLASS: Dopamine  –   2 receptor antagonist Method of Action Metoclopramide is a prokinetic drug that stimulates the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract by interacting with receptors for acetylcholine and dopamine on gastrointestinal muscles and nerves. It also stimulates the muscles of the stomach and thereby hastens emptying of solid and liquid meals from the stomach and into the intestines.  Indications    Chemotherapy-induced nausea & vomiting    Diabetic Gastroparesis    Small Bowel Intubation    Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease    Post-op nausea and vomiting Contraindications    History of tardive dyskinesia (TD)    Dystonic reaction to metoclopramide    GI obstruction, perforation or hemorrhage    Pheochromocytoma    Epilepsy Side Effects    Drowsiness      Restlessness      Fatigue      Anxiety      Insomnia      Depression      Sedation    Adverse Effects      Parkinsonism      Akathisia      Seizures      Hallucinations      Hypertension      Fluid retention      Hyperprolactinemia      Hypersensitivity reactions  Patient Teaching    Store tablets and syrups between 15 degrees Celsius to 30 degrees Celsius.
