What is metoclopram >
Clopramide increases muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract. This speeds up the rate at which the stomach empties into the intestines.
Clopramide oral (taken by mouth) is used for 4 to 12 weeks to treat heartburn caused by gastroesophageal reflux in people who have used other medications without relief.
Clopramide oral is also used to treat gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying) in people with diabetes, which can cause heartburn and stomach discomfort after meals.
Clopramide injection is used to treat severe diabetic gastroparesis. The injection is also used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy or surgery, or to aid in certain medical procedures involving the stomach or intestines.

Rarely, cases of hepatotoxicity, characterized by such findings as jaundice and altered liver function tests, when Clopramide was administered with other drugs with known hepatotoxic potential.
Other Special Populations
Patients with NADH-cytochrome b5 reductase deficiency are at an increased risk of developing methemoglobinemia and/or sulfhemoglobinemia when Clopramide is administered. In patients with G6PD deficiency who experience Clopramide- induced methemoglobinemia, methylene blue treatment is not recommended (see OVERDOSE).
About metoclopram >
Clopramide is used to relieve feelings of sickness (nausea) or being sick (vomiting). Clopramide is often prescribed when the sickness is associated with a surgical operation, a migraine headache, or as a result of radiotherapy or medicines for cancer. It works by helping to move the food in your stomach through your digestive system more quickly. This helps to stop you from feeling sick.
The incidence of side effects correlates with dose and duration of Clopramide therapy.
Clopramide is a dopamine antagonist that stimulates motility of the upper gastrointestinal tract and increases lower esophageal sphincter tone.
