Some products that may interact with this drug include: pramlintide, dopamine agonists (such as cabergoline, pergolide, ropinirole), tacrolimus, tranquilizers (including antipsychotics such as aripiprazole/haloperidol, phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine/prochlorperazine), MAO inhibitors (isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine), rivastigmine.
Some medications may block the actions of metoclopramide. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are also taking anticholinergic drugs (such as benztropine, scopolamine, antihistamines such as diphenhydramine) or narcotic pain/cough medications (such as codeine, morphine).
Since metoclopramide causes food and medication to move through your stomach more quickly, drugs that are absorbed from the stomach (such as digoxin, fosfomycin) may not be absorbed as well. Drugs absorbed from the intestines (such as acetaminophen, cyclosporine, alcohol, tetracycline) may have increased absorption.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking other products that cause drowsiness, including alcohol, antihistamines (such as cetirizine, diphenhydramine), drugs for sleep or anxiety (such as alprazolam, diazepam, zolpidem), muscle relaxants, and narcotic pain relievers (such as codeine).
Check the labels on all your medicines (such as allergy or cough-and-cold products) because they may contain ingredients that cause drowsiness. Ask your pharmacist about using those products safely.
