Metoclopramide can block dopamine receptors as part of it’s mechanism of action. I discuss the clinical implications from this in the podcast.
Metoclopramide can exacerbate Parkison’s disorder so you need to be careful in that type of patient.
Metoclopramide is dosed frequently, which can potentially be a downside as far as patient adherence goes.
Metoclopramide has a few potential interactions that you should be aware of. I talk about those in this episode.
Be sure to check out The Thrill of the Case on Amazon as I do have a clinical scenario about Reglan (metoclopramide) in that 200+ page book.
