Tardive Dyskinesia Symptoms

Reglan or its generic version, metoclopramide, is a leading cause of tardive dyskinesia, or other movement disorders brought on by changes the drug may produce in the brain. If you've taken Reglan or metoclopramide and have any of the following symptoms or side effects, you may have tardive dyskinesia. It is unlikely that you regular family doctor will be able to diagnose your tardive dyskinesia disorder properly. (To find a physician specialist near where you live with the right kind of advanced training, please contact Ralph Pittle.)
