Dear patient,

Thanks for your concerns. Metoclopramide (Reglan) is a very effective prokinetic, meaning that it improves transit through the gut; it is useful for some patients with reflux and gastritis but particularly helpful in diabetic patients who have slow transit of food.

Truly yours,

Dr Brenes-Salazar MD
