Defective Drug Litigation for Reglan
Reglan, also known as metoclopramide, is a drug that is used to treat symptoms such as heartburn, acid reflux, nausea and vomiting, as well as to facilitate gastric emptying in patients who are suffering from gastroparesis. Recently, however, the FDA has warned about a link between Reglan's use and serious medical conditions known as Tardive Dyskinesia and Tardive Dystonia.
If you or a loved one has used Reglan and has experienced symptoms of those conditions, you should speak with a lawyer about your situation and whether you may have a legal case to pursue compensation.
At Kaiser Gornick LLP, in San Francisco, our attorneys have extensive experience in defective pharmaceutical cases and have helped recover millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
Symptoms of Conditions Linked to Reglan
Tardive Dyskinesia is a condition with symptoms that include:
- Repetitive and involuntary tics and spasms
- Tongue protrusion
- Puckering and pursing of the lips
- Rapid eye blinking
- Rapid movement of the extremities
- Impaired movement of the fingers
The related condition of Tardive Dystonia produces involuntary muscle contractions that produce twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. These contractions can be limited to a single body region or can extend to all of the extremities, but they can all be very painful and debilitating.
