Before taking this medicine
You should not use Elieten if you are allergic to it, or if you have:
tardive dyskinesia (a disorder of involuntary movements);
stomach or intestinal problems such as a blockage, bleeding, or perforation (a hole or tear in your stomach or intestines);
epilepsy or other seizure disorder;
an adrenal gland tumor (pheochromocytoma); or
if you've ever had muscle movement problems after using Elieten or similar medicines.
Tell your doctor if you have ever had:
liver or kidney disease;
problems with muscle movements;
congestive heart failure or a heart rhythm disorder;
depression or mental illness.
This medicine may contain phenylalanine. Check the medication label if you have phenylketonuria (PKU).
Tell your doctor if you are pregnant. Elieten may harm an unborn baby if you use the medicine during late pregnancy.
It may not be safe to breast-feed a baby while you are using this medicine. Ask your doctor about any risks.
Elieten is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.
The effects of Elieten on gastrointestinal motility are antagonized by anticholinergic drugs and narcotic analgesics. Additive sedative effects can occur when Elieten is given with alcohol, sedatives, hypnotics, narcotics, or tranquilizers.
The finding that Elieten releases catecholamines in patients with essential hypertension suggests that it should be used cautiously, if at all, in patients receiving monoamine oxidase inhibitors.
Absorption of drugs from the stomach may be diminished (e.g., digoxin) by Elieten, whereas the rate and/or extent of absorption of drugs from the small bowel may be increased (e.g., acetaminophen, tetracycline, levodopa, ethanol, cyclosporine).
Gastroparesis (gastric stasis) may be responsible for poor diabetic control in some patients. Exogenously administered insulin may begin to act before food has left the stomach and lead to hypoglycemia. Because the action of Elieten will influence the delivery of food to the intestines and thus the rate of absorption, insulin dosage or timing of dosage may require adjustment.
Use In Patients With Renal Or Hepatic Impairment
Since Elieten is excreted principally through the kidneys, in those patients whose creatinine clearance is below 40 mL/min, therapy should be initiated at approximately one-half the recommended dosage. Depending upon clinical efficacy and safety considerations, the dosage may be increased or decreased as appropriate.
See OVERDOSE section for information regarding dialysis.
Elieten undergoes minimal hepatic metabolism, except for simple conjugation. Its safe use has been described in patients with advanced liver disease whose renal function was normal.

Elieten, Reglan, Reglan ODT, Metozolv ODT, Octamide, (Maxolon discontinued) is a drug prescribed for the treatment of heartburn and esophagitis due to GERD in patients with gastroparesis. Elieten is also prescribed for the treatment of impaired function of muscles of the small intestine and the nausea due to surgery or cancer chemotherapy. Side effects, drug interactions, dosing information, and pregnancy safety should be reviewed prior to taking any medication.
Which drugs or supplements interact with Elieten?
Since Elieten accelerates emptying of the stomach, it can increase or decrease absorption and effects of other drugs that are absorbed in the small intestine. For example, the effects of alcohol, diazepam (Valium) and cyclosporine can be accelerated when used together with Elieten. Conversely, Elieten may decrease the concentrations in blood of digoxin (Lanoxin) and cimetidine (Tagamet). Elieten should not be used in patients taking MAO inhibitors for example, isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate), selegiline (Eldepryl), and procarbazine (Matulane), because of the risk of serious adverse effects due to excess release of neurotransmitters. Concurrent administration of anticholinergic drugs can decrease the effectiveness of Elieten.
What should I avoid while taking Elieten?
Drinking alcohol with this medicine can cause side effects.
Avoid driving or hazardous activity until you know how this medicine will affect you. Your reactions could be impaired.
