Description

Metoclopramide is a medication that is used in the treatment of conditions that affect the stomach and intestines. This medication is used as a short time treatment, with the therapy taking around 4-12 weeks in the case of persistent heartburn. Metoclopramide is mainly used for heartburns that occur after taking a meal. When heartburn is treated, it can prevent damage to the esophagus by stomach acids.

This medication is also used by diabetes patients in the treatment of gastroparesis. When this condition is treated, symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, and abdominal fullness are decreased. This medication works by blocking dopamine, a naturally occurring substance. This speeds up the movement of the upper intestines as well as emptying of the stomach.
