  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   delayed gastric emptying-nausea
Dosage & duration:   5 mg taken daily for the period of couple years
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   It worked great! I would not be nauseated at all and could eat and have energy all day.
Side effects:   none, but the doc stopped it as I started needing it less, aid there would be too much risk of weird symptoms. I still miss it and wish I could have it back. But I am not as sick or as often I was. It was just stress and a job change helped also.
Comments:   I took in the am when nauseated, I would take again if needed but after a while it worked all day for me. I took as little as possible as I am not a big pill taker

Reported Results
Benefits:   took the reglan to try to empty my stomach before i threw up and the reglan didnt work - the tagamet helped - scale 1-10 a 10
Side effects:   didn't notice any
Comments:   chronic ulcers - my tube that carries the food to the stomach had an opening the diameter of a pencil - the reglan was to help empty my stomach once the food finally got there - otherwise it would sit there because my stomach was tilted and the food couldn't drain easily and therefore the stomach acids would keep eating at the food and also the ulcers till they could never quit bleeding - 3 stomach surgeries later and no stomach left to cut away i am healed and need no medications not even mylanta or tums
