Reglan Effects on Children

Detecting Reglan Side Effects in Children

Reglan Drug Injury

Detecting the side effects of Reglan® in children can be difficult for the untrained eye. Children metabolize many drugs differently, so some symptoms are more obvious than others and symptom severity has a wide range. If your child is currently taking Reglan, watch for these side effects:

  • agitation
  • confusion
  • diarrhea
  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • fast heartbeat
  • fever
  • headache
  • increased sweating
  • rigid muscles
  • tiredness
  • trouble sleeping

Also be aware of the more serious side effects associated with Reglan and children, such as mental/mood changes, inability to keep still/need to pace, and muscle spasms/uncontrolled muscle movements (such as twisting neck, arching back). Reglan may cause side effects that look like Parkinson’s disease. Seek immediate medical attention if you notice any of these side effects.
