Two Reglan Lawsuits Filed in Louisiana

. By
New Orleans, LAA New Orleans attorney has filed two more Reglan lawsuits, claiming that the manufacturers of the acid reflux drug didn't properly warn consumers about the drug's side effects.

Attorney Allan Berger filed the lawsuits on behalf of Ellen Austin and Leslie Keeper against Actavis, Actavis Elizabeth and Watson Pharmaceuticals, according to the Louisiana Record. The plaintiffs are seeking damages against the companies for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical disfigurement and court costs, among other things.

The lawsuit claims that the defendants spread inaccurate, incomplete, false, misleading and inadequate information about Reglan side effects.

Reglan, generically known as metocrlopramide, is a medication used as short-term treatment for such maladies as heartburn, nausea and vomiting. It has been discovered that the medication can cause a number of serious side effects, such as tardive dyskinesia (TD).

According to the Mayo Clinic, TD is characterized by "repetitive, involuntary, purposeless movements such as grimacing, lip smacking, eye blinking or rapid leg and arm movements."

Additionally, the lawsuit claims that Reglan causes a number of permanent and disabling ailments, such as serious injuries to the central nervous and extrapyramidal motor systems.
