Took Reglan for two days. Become highly manic after second day of taking med. Reglan given for gastroparesis. Inflamed intestines found during surgery. After one day of reglan, bowel movements times 14 in two days. No sleep in 36 hours. Quit taking med. Understand that Reglan is only med for Gastroparesis. Can't take it. Now, that I am no longer on med, gastroparesis symptoms have returned. Feel full. Decreased emptying and few bowel movements. Like to find out what is causing my Gastroparesis.
