Reglan is a anti-psychotic drug that was being given to infants for spitting up.

Metoclopramide (Reglan)

from the forum:


snip from a mother:

My baby girl only took these meds for a couple weeks. She was an apnic baby; her reflux would block her airway and there were pauses in her breathing. She was put on the Reglan along with the Zantac to try to stop the reflux. While taking the meds she could not even hold her head up; she slept almost all of the time; I could not keep her awake as hard as I tried and she just looked stoned. It was just really sad to see her on it. I told the doc I refused to give it to her any more.

I would NEVER give this to anyone - especially after reading up on it. I wish I had NEVER given it to my daughter. I was not warned of the side effects. She has had to have early intervention. She has had some speech delays and muscle issues - was diagnosed Dyspraxic (with Oral and Motor Apraxia/dyspraxia; problem that her brain understands everything and her muscles work, but somewhere between the signal gets crossed) She is progressing. But she has some texture/sensory issues and mood issues, and is still having some fine motor issues. She has had night terrors. Now reading about this medicine, I wonder how much it may have to do with it.
