Childers, Schlueter & Smith, LLC Set for Reglan/metoclopramide Jury Trial Involving Woman's Development of Tardive Dyskinesia
Date:7/19/2010

ATLANTA, July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The law firm of Childers, Schlueter & Smith, LLC of Atlanta, Georgia has announced that a jury trial involving the drug Reglan/metoclopramide will be held during the week of July 26, 2010.  The case is Susan Swicegood v.

Previous and Pending Reglan lawsuits, which now total over 150 filed, prompted the FDA to change requirements in the labeling of the drug in February 2009 to account for the increased risk of developing tardive dyskinesia from Reglan/metoclopramide use. New rules included a "Black Box" warning about the potential risk of tardive dyskinesia from long-term use. However, the suit alleges that the Physician's Desk Reference used by Ms. Swicegood's doctor was not updated with the new warnings as required by law.  As a result, neither the patient nor her doctor under
