Drug Mode of Action ::
Metoclopramide enhances the motility of the upper GI tract and increases gastric emptying without affecting gastric, biliary or pancreatic secretions. It increases duodenal peristalsis which decreases intestinal transit time, and increases lower oesophageal sphincter tone. It is also a potent central dopamine-receptor antagonist and may also have serotonin-receptor (5-HT3) antagonist properties.
Drug Interactions ::
Increased sedative effects with CNS depressants. GI effects antagonised by antimuscarinics and opioids. Reduces absorption of digoxin. Increases absorption of ciclosporin, levodopa, aspirin, paracetamol. Interferes with hypoprolactinaemic effect of bromocriptine. Inhibits serum cholinesterase and prolongs neuromuscular blockade produced by suxamethonium and mivacurium. Potentially Fatal: Serotonin syndrome with sertraline (SSRI).
