Reglan Lawsuit Attorney

Reglan is taken by thousands of patients. It’s a drug used to aid digestion. Reglan is the brand name of the medication; its technical name is metoclopramide. By increasing stomach contractions, this drug is able to aid digestion. The drug is also manufactured under the names Octamide and Maxolon.

It was first introduced during the 1980s. Since it was released, it has been linked to many serious side effects, which includes a condition called tardive dyskinesia. Reglan is frequently prescribed in pill and liquid form, but it’s also given to patients as an injection.

The drug has been prescribed for several different conditions. It’s frequently prescribed for gastro paresis, which is a condition that causes extremely slow stomach contractions. In some cases, the condition can prevent the stomach from contracting altogether.

People who have this condition complain of feeling full too often, loss of appetite, nausea and pain. Studies show that diabetes also has the potential to cause gastro paresis, but it’s not uncommon for people who don’t have diabetes to develop the condition.

Many doctors prescribe Reglan to patients who’re undergoing chemotherapy because it prevents vomiting. Reglan is able to block serotonin and dopamine receptors inside of the medulla, which is the area of the brain responsible for controlling vomiting. Reglan is also prescribed for acid reflux.

However, Reglan is usually a last resort for acid reflux because it’s a very strong medication. Since it’s been shown to be effective for acid reflux, Reglan is also prescribed for aspiration pneumonia, which is a condition that involves food being inhaled into the lungs.

Aspiration pneumonia can be fatal. It’s also not uncommon for Reglan to be prescribed for the prevention of reflux when a person has a tube inserted into their stomach.

If you or someone you know has developed tardive dyskinesia or other injuries from taking Reglan, it’s important to get legal help immediately. Many patients will require expensive, long-term medical treatment for the injuries sustained from taking Reglan. In many Reglan lawsuits, the jury has ruled in favor of the plaintiff.

If the condition has severely impacted the person’s life, it’s very likely that he or she will receive a significant amount of compensation. However, not everyone has a valid case against the drug manufacturers.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
