Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for follow up my dear patient,
Medicine that help help the stomach empty more quickly (motility agents),are used to treat gastroparesis(Extended release erythromycin) however practically metochlorpromide has a better effect on patients.However if you are feeling better on this antibiotic you can continue with it.
Anorectal manometry measures the pressures of the anal sphincter muscles, the sensation in the rectum, and the neural reflexes that are needed for normal bowel movements.Any anti anxiety medication would suppress the nervous system and would result in false results.So you can take xanax or valium after your test.

Yes anal manometry would help to see if problem is there in upper part of gut(gastroperesis) or lower part muscles are having contraction problem..

Good line of treatment by doctor.
