Side Effects of Orally Disintegrating Metoclopramide

Common Side Effects

Orally disintegrating metoclopramide has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking the drug were documented and compared to those that occurred in another group of people taking regular (not orally disintegrating) metoclopramide tablets. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the regular tablets.
 
In these studies, the most common side effects seen with orally disintegrating metoclopramide included:
 
  • Headache -- in up to 5.2 percent of people
  • Nausea -- up to 4.2 percent
  • Vomiting -- up to 2.1 percent
  • Fatigue -- up to 2.1 percent
  • Drowsiness -- up to 2.1 percent
  • Dizziness -- up to 1 percent.
     

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any adverse reactions while taking orally disintegrating metoclopramide. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be an orally disintegrating metoclopramide side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
