Is Metoclopramide advisable when suffering from pheochromocytoma

I am in the process of being diagnosed with pheochromocytoma and am having a hard time managing symptoms. I was given raglan and benadryl at the emergency room with a prescription for home. I see on the leaflet that came with the metoclopramide that it should not be taken if you have a pheochromocytoma.
