metoclopramide (Reglan) can cause tardive dyskinesia, a serious movement disorder that is often irreversible
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Milton Purvis and people who suffer from Reglan Side Effects. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on October 30th, 2012, US Judge dismissed the lawsuit filed by Milton Purvis in Louisiana Middle District Court (case no. 3:2010cv00807) alleging that metoclopramide, the generic form of Reglan caused him to develop tardive dyskinesia. Reglan is a drug used to help with the digestive process and reduce the symptoms of acid reflux and heartburn. It has been in the market since 1996.
Judge Brian A. Jackson found that the plaintiff’s failure to warn claim is preempted by Federal drug regulations that prevent the manufacturer from independently changing its generic drug’s safety label and issue new warnings. Purvis claimed he was prescribed metoclopramide, the generic form of Reglan, from July 2005 to January 2007 and from May 2008 to July 2010. After ingesting Reglan/metoclopramide for the alleged periods he suffered from tardive dyskinesia.
In 2009, the US FDA issued a black box warning that treatment with metoclopramide (Reglan) can cause tardive dyskinesia, a serious movement disorder that is often irreversible.

As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Reglan remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
As the FDA informs, chronic use of metoclopramide has been linked to tardive dyskinesia, which may include involuntary and repetitive movements of the body, even after the drugs are no longer taken. The symptoms are rarely reversible and there is no known treatment.
