What is metoclopramide?
Metoclopramide (generic Reglan) is a prescription drug used to relieve heartburn and speed up the healing of sores in the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach) for people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Metoclopramide can also be used by people with diabetes to treat the symptoms of slow stomach emptying (gastroparesis), such as nausea, vomiting, heartburn, and loss of appetite.
