Who should not take metoclopramide?

You should not take metoclopramide if you have seizures; intestinal blockage, or perforation; stomach bleeding; or adrenal gland tumors. You should also not take this medication if you take cabergoline or if you take medications that may cause extrapyramidal reactions (involuntary muscle movements involving the neck, head, arms, or legs). Do not take this medication if you are allergic to it. Metoclopramide should be taken with caution by the elderly and with extreme caution by children, since the risks of side effects may be greater. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, contact your doctor to discuss the risks and benefits of taking metoclopramide.
