I went to the doctor yesterday, and was discussing the diabetic gastropresis (sp) that I have. He gave me a script for Reglan. After reading the warnings, and side effects, I am kinda scared and reluctant to try the medicine. I was just curious if anyone else is on this medicine, and if they have experienced any side effects, or if the medicine has actually helped them. I would love some input from anyone on this subject. Thank You Very Much!! Ya"ll ROCK! I LOVE THIS WEBSITE!! :) <3

I've been on Reglan briefly, I was lucky my gastroparesis kinda resolved itself...which it may very well do as blood sugar gets under better control. But had no problems with Reglan, have known a lot of people who have been on it, and no problems too.

Every medicine has risks, but everyone I've known on it has been ok...It really does help with the digestive problems.
It was several years ago, but it resolved tummy issues I was having and I had no side effects.
I don't know if it makes all that much of a difference, but my blood sugars have been under well control for the last couple of years, and yet, I still have problems. Thank You for your input! I will be giving it a try!!
I've been on it for years and it works for me. No side effects either.

I never had side effects...however, I never took it for gastroparesis (I don't have that).

I was given Reglan in the ER for severe nausea associated with DKA, then was given a script to take home in case I ever needed another anti-nausea med (when I vomit - even if it's unrelated to high BGs - I get dehydrated FAST, develop crazy insulin resistance, start developing ketones, etc...and it's all downhill from there).
