Metonia How to Take

Metonia (Metoclopramide) belongs to the classes of medications called antiemetics and prokinetics. It is used to improve stomach emptying after surgery or other procedures. It can also be used to prevent nausea after operations and is useful in preventing the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. It works by speeding up the rate at which the stomach empties and by blocking nausea triggers in the brain.

Metonia (Metoclopramide) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Metonia (Metoclopramide) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.

Metonia Precautions

There may be an interaction between Metonia (Metoclopramide) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Metonia (Metoclopramide). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Metonia Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Metonia (Metoclopramide).

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Metonia (Metoclopramide) may cause drowsiness and increase the drowsiness caused by alcohol and other drugs. Avoid driving and doing other potentially hazardous activities until you have determined the effect Metonia (Metoclopramide) has on you.

Medical conditions: If you have Epilepsy, Parkinson's Disease, or Kidney Disease, discuss with your doctor how Metonia (Metoclopramide) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metonia (Metoclopramide), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Tardive dyskinesia (TD): Metonia (Metoclopramide) may cause tardive dyskinesia (TD) to develop. TD is a potentially irreversible syndrome of involuntary, repetitive movements of the face and tongue muscles. Although TD appears most commonly in seniors, especially women, it is impossible to predict who will develop TD. The risk of developing TD increases with higher doses and long-term treatment. If you experience muscle twitching or abnormal movements of the face or tongue, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Pregnancy: Metonia (Metoclopramide) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Metonia (Metoclopramide), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Metonia (Metoclopramide) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Metonia (Metoclopramide), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: Metonia (Metoclopramide) should not be used in children less than one year of age. It should only be used in children over one year of age when the benefits of treatment outweigh the risks of side effects. Children may be more at risk of experiencing abnormal involuntary movements such as tremors and abnormal twitching movements, even at recommended dosages.

Seniors: Seniors appear to have a higher risk of side effects with long-term treatment of Metonia (Metoclopramide).
