Metoclopramide increases muscle contractions in upper digestive tract. This speeds up the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines. Metoclopramide is used short-term to treat heartburn caused by gastroesophageal reflux in people who have used other medications without relief of symptoms. Metoclopramide is also used to treat slow gastric emptying in people with diabetes (also called diabetic gastroparesis), which can cause nausea, vomiting, heartburn, loss of appetite, and a feeling of fullness after meals. Metoclopramide may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. Take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Take this medicine with a full glass of water. Measure liquid medicine with a special dose-measuring spoon or cup not a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one. The oral concentrate form of metoclopramide must be mixed with another liquid, such as water, fruit juice, soda, or a soft food like applesauce or pudding. Carefully follow mixing directions to make sure you get the correct dose. Metoclopramide is usually taken before meals and at bedtime. Your doctor may want you to take the medication as needed only with meals that usually cause heartburn.
