Have You Taken Reglan and Developed Tardive Dyskinesia?
You May Have Rights

Reglan, a popular drug for the treatment of a variety of gastrointestinal disorders, has been linked to tardive dyskinesia, a devastating and permanent condition which causes involuntary movements of the extremities and the face. Taking Reglan in high doses or for extended periods of time has been shown to increase the risks of developing the condition. The Food and Drug Administration recently issued a public health advisory about the heightened risks of tardive dyskinesia in people on Reglan.

If you or a loved one has taken Reglan for treatment of a gastrointestinal disorder and now suffer from tardive dyskinesia, you may be entitled to financial compensation for the injury. Our aggressive, experienced personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping people hurt by Reglan and other dangerous drugs receive the financial compensation and protection they deserve.

FDA Issues Reglan Warning

In February 2009, the Food and Drug Administration issued a safety advisory to warn about the long-term or high-dose use of Reglan. The warning was prompted by reports of patients developing tardive dyskinesia while taking the drug in high doses or for longer than three months. Reglan is FDA-approved for short-term use for gastrointestinal disorder in patients who have not benefitted from other treatments. The FDA required the makers of Reglan and other metoclopramide drugs to add boxed warnings to the products’ labeling about the risks of high-dose use or long-term use of the drugs.

What is Tardive Dyskinesia?

Tardive dyskinesia is a permanent condition that commonly causes involuntary, repetitive jerky movements of the hands, arms, legs, and face. There is no cure or effective treatment for tardive dyskinesia, however, the symptoms may be reduced or eliminated if the patient stops taking Reglan for gastrointestinal problems.
