Reglan News: Lawyers seeking to Consolidate in Nevada

What we are hearing: Lawyers have filed a Motion with the JPML, asking that all of the filed Reglan cases be consolidated and moved to a US District Court in Nevada.

Reglan (metoclopramide) is a drug which is only approved for short-term use to treat gastrointestinal disorders like diabetic gastroparesis, gastroesphageal reflux (GERD) and delayed gastric emptying. However, because those conditions are usually chronic problems, it is often prescribed for longer periods of time. Illnesses include essential tremors, Tardive Dyskinesia, and other movement disorders.

We're investigating this drug and how it may have harmed Georgia consumers. Go here for more information.
