What is Metoclopramide?

Metoclopramide is a medication used to treat nausea. It can help your symptoms by stopping you from feeling and being sick.

It’s a generic version of the branded Maxolon. This means they both contain the same active ingredient and work in about the same way but Metoclopramide is usually cheaper.

Metoclopramide is a short course of treatment and you should take it for a maximum of five days.

How does Metoclopramide work?

Nausea is the feeling of needing to be sick, which sometimes triggers actual vomiting. It’s often triggered when nerves in a part of your body are irritated and send signals to a part of your brain called the CTZ (chemoreceptor trigger zone). The CTZ then sends signals via dopamine to the vomiting centre.

The vomiting centre can cause spasms in the gut and feelings of sickness. Metoclopramide works by interrupting the messages that are sent between the CTZ and the vomiting centre. This should reduce nausea and curb the risk of vomiting.

Which dose of Metoclopramide should I use?

The standard dose of Metoclopramide is 10mg, taken up to three times a day. If this isn’t effective enough at reducing nausea, our clinician might be able to recommend a higher dose of up to 30mg.

If you suffer from liver or kidney conditions or if you weigh less than 60kg, a standard dose of Metoclopramide could be too high for you. In this case, you will need to talk to our clinician about a lower dose.

How to take Metoclopramide

Always take the dosage of Metoclopramide prescribed by our clinician. Swallow it with water. Wait at least six hours between each dose, even if you’ve been sick.

How long does it take Metoclopramide to work?

You’ll usually start to feel better half an hour to an hour after taking Metoclopramide.

How long can I take Metoclopramide for?

Metoclopramide is usually prescribed for up to five days. This can vary depending on why you’re using it.

If you’re taking it for migraines, you should only take it as and when your symptoms appear. If you’re taking it for nausea caused by chemotherapy or surgery, take for as long as it has been prescribed.

Maybe you feel like you need more nausea treatment after finishing your course, or you’re not sure how much you were supposed to take. In this case, go back and talk to our clinician. You just need to sign in to your account and send our clinician a message.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Metoclopramide?

If you’ve taken more Metoclopramide than you should, contact a clinician or go to your local hospital. Bring the packaging of the medication with you if possible.

If you miss a dose, don’t take a double dose to make up for it. Just skip a dose and continue treatment as normal.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body.

FAQ: Metoclopramide

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Is Metoclopramide similar to any other treatments?

There are a couple of migraine treatments similar to Metoclopramide. There’s Migramax, which is 10 mg of Metoclopramide with aspirin. There’s also Paramax, 5mg of Metoclopramide with paracetamol. As these are both branded treatments, they will probably be more expensive than generic Metoclopramide with over-the-counter paracetamol or aspirin. These medications also specifically treat migraine sickness, so they’re not appropriate for everyone.

How effective is Metoclopramide?

Metoclopramide has been shown to be very effective at treating nausea with a range of causes, such as migraine and chemotherapy. It works in both high and low doses with low risk of side effects.

Who is Metoclopramide for?

Metoclopramide is usually prescribed to the following groups:

  • people with migraine nausea

  • people suffering nausea after operations

  • nausea associated with chemotherapy or radiotherapy

  • nausea during end of life care

Due to its effectiveness at treating nausea, it is sometimes used ‘off label’ for other causes. If you need help with nausea, talk to our clinician about finding the right treatment.

Do I need a prescription for Metoclopramide?

You’ll need a prescription for Metoclopramide. This is so we can make sure it’s the right treatment for you and is safe for you to use. If you already have a prescription, you can order online with us and have it delivered to your door.

If you don’t have a prescription for Metoclopramide and you’re suffering from nausea, tell us about your health. Our clinicians can check your information and offer some suggestions.
