Orally Disintegrating Metoclopramide Information

Orally disintegrating metoclopramide (Metozolv™ ODT) is used on a short-term basis (2 to 12 weeks) for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and diabetic gastroparesis. It also may be used in an off-label fashion to treat or prevent nausea and vomiting, or to stimulate the production of breast milk. The drug comes in the form of a tablet that is placed under the tongue, where it dissolves rapidly.
 
When prescribing orally disintegrating metoclopramide, information your healthcare provider needs includes a list of all medications you are taking, including nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and supplements, as well as a complete medical history. For example, this drug can make certain medical conditions worse, such as depression, congestive heart failure, or cirrhosis of the liver. If you have any of these conditions, your healthcare provider may recommend a different medicine.
