- Normal pressure hydrocephalus & metoclopramide (1 answer)
My Mom while recovering from a hip fracture in a rehab center was given Metoclopramide for 2 days when she suddenly (about 2-3 hours after her dose of metoclopramide at lunch time) became completely disoriented,lethargic and could not speak. She could barely swallow, and could not drink liquids even using a straw. Her legs/feet kept twitching and she kept raising her arms above her and repeatedly wiped her mouth every few minutes for more than an hour. I insisted that she be transported to the hospital. The E.R. staff ruled out stroke, and the next day an MRI was negative for stroke. I am wondering if the metoclopramide is at the root of her problem. She can speak slowly but her words are gibberish. Does this sound like a reaction to metoclopramide?
