Reglan - Summary
Reglan is a medication typically indicated for the relief of gastroesophageal reflux and intestinal motility issues in some people. People who might need a Reglan medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Reglan medication, including generic Reglan 10 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Reglan Used For?
Reglan prescription medication contains the active ingredient metoclopramide. Reglan medication is approved for relieving symptoms in some cases of gastroesophageal reflux (i.e. acid reflux) and for gastroparesis in some people with diabetes. While some people have heard of Reglan for migraines or Reglan for nausea (similar to prochlorperazine), it is not officially approved for those uses even if it is prescribed in an off-label way for those uses by some medical providers. Reglan is thought to work by antagonizing specific receptors in the body known as dopamine D2 receptors as well as 5-HT3 receptors while activating 5-HT4 receptors. Through its interaction on these receptors - especially ones found in the upper gastrointestinal tract - Reglan medication appears to increase motility and peristalsis and reduce symptoms of nausea.
Reglan - Dosage and Classification
Reglan prescription medication is available as Reglan 5 mg tablets and Reglan 10 mg tablets. Some Reglan dosing regimens call for Reglan 10 mg to be administered twice per day, 30 minutes before meals. However, some people will have higher or lower Reglan doses and the prescribed regimen depends on the patient's specific health needs and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. After oral administration, Reglan is not highly bound to proteins. Reglan's mean elimination half-life is approximately six hours. Reglan is largely eliminated from the body in the urine. While generic Reglan is very affordable, branded Reglan tablets are more expensive, costing approximately $3.50 per Reglan 10 mg tablet at many pharmacies. Because of the high cost, people paying out of pocket frequently look for and find Reglan coupons through the manufacturer or online. Additionally, some insurance plans may cover costs associated with Reglan prescription medication and it is worth checking with the plan.
Can I Buy Reglan Online?
Reglan medication requires a prescription from a medical provider before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. Because of this, Reglan OTC is not available and one cannot simply buy Reglan online. Anyone needing a Reglan prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Reglan tablets, including generic Reglan 10 mg medication, when appropriate to do so.
Reglan - Side Effects
Prior to using Reglan prescription medication, it is important to discuss concerns and possible side effects with a licensed pharmacist and medical provider. Side effects that may result from Reglan use include fatigue, drowsiness, restlessness, lack of energy, mood disorders and fluid retention. Reglan and alcohol should not be used together. People with a history of tardive dyskinesia, pheochromocytoma, gastric motility disorders and epilepsy should not use Reglan medication. People with a known hypersensitivity to Reglan or ingredients in the formulation should not use Reglan prescription tablets.
