Reglan Attorneys Who Know How to Win
Reglan, a medication used to treat heartburn, seems to be contending with other negligent manufacturers for defending the most defective medication cases in 2012. Chronic use of Reglan is now being associated with serious and life-threatening side effects including a movement disorder called Tardive Dyskinesia. Although it has yet to be pulled from the shelves, reports are coming in from all across the U.S. claiming that Reglan has contributed to the development of Tardive Dyskinesia, as well as claims that allege Wyeth, the medication's manufacturer, was aware of physician's tendencies to prescribe the medication for a period of time that exceeds that which is healthy.
Reglan, which is also known as Metoclopramide, is supposed to be used short-term to treat heartburn caused by gastroesophageal reflux in people who have yet to find a medication that relieves their symptoms. When working properly, it increases muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract which speeds up the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines.
Although we have worked with products liability victims for decades, the callous disregard and product manufacturer negligence required to produce cases like this never cease to amaze me. In many cases, the wide-spread effects of defective medications could have been avoided had the manufacturer spent the time to warn the public of its dangers. Until product manufacturers decide to prioritize the safety of their consumers over their profit margin, we will continue to see consumers converted into victims.
It is estimated that more than two million people in the U.S. use products containing Metoclopramide. Taking Metoclopramide may cause you to develop the muscle condition called Tardive Dyskinesia. When a patient has been taking drugs like Reglan for a long period of time, repetitive tic-like movements can result, primarily in the facial muscles or the limbs, fingers and toes. At this point, the best treatment for Tardive Dyskinesia is prevention, so if you are taking Reglan or Metoclopramide you should alert your doctor and get checked out immediately.
