Q: What is the difference between Reglan and Haponal?
A: Haponal (atropine/hyoscyamine/Phenobarbital/ scopolamine) is an anticholinergic agent, antispasmodic agent and gastrointestinal agent used to treat irritable bowel syndrome, acute enterocolitis and duodenal ulcer. Haponal contains several drugs; Phenobarbital which is a barbiturate which slows the activity of the brain and central nervous system and belladonna alkaloids (atropine, hyoscyamine, and scopolamine) which reduce muscle spasms in the digestive tract as well as reduce fluid secretions. The most common side effects with Haponal are bloating, blurred vision, constipation, dizziness, decreased sweating, drowsiness, dry mouth, headache, nausea, insomnia, and nervousness. Reglan (Metroclopramida) is an antiemetic prokinetic gastrointestinal agent used to treat gastroparesis (slowing of the digestive tract) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Reglan speeds up stomach emptying which can help prevent nausea, vomiting and heartburn. The most common side effects with Reglan are tiredness, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, nausea, restlessness and insomnia. Laura Cable, PharmD., BCPS
Reglan S >
In approximately 10 percent of patients given 10 mg of Reglan (Metroclopramida) four times daily, the most commonly reported side effects included restlessness, drowsiness, fatigue and lassitude (mental weariness or lack of energy). The incidence of such adverse reactions was dependent upon dosage and duration of drug exposure.
Some adverse reactions occurred after Reglan treatment was discontinued, especially involving the nervous system. These side effects included dizziness, nervousness and headaches.
Use of Reglan, especially for longer than 12 weeks, carries the risk of developing a condition known as tardive dyskinesia (TD), a neurological disorder that involves involuntary, rapid movements of the face and body.
Depending on the person, TD symptoms may be mild and only last for a short time or they may continue indefinitely. If the condition is diagnosed early enough, changing medications may be enough. In some instances, however, it can be permanent.
Metroclopramida, 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. Metroclopramida 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.
