My doctor sent me for allergy testing. I gave up. I did not think it was true. Then I tried over the counter medicines and different prescription drugs. Nothing worked. I am continuously coughing and have to clear my throat nonstop. I have had reflux (GERD) for 26 years. For the last 5 to 7 years I have been taking metoclopramide hydrochloride 10 mg once a day. This medicine worked! Important thing is you cannot take this tablet everyday though. You have to follow doctor’s directions. This was the only tablet that has helped me and I need to take it forever. Hope this medication helps someone.

I have been taking ranitidine for GERD for several years and would like to stop.
