Abstract: Metoclopramide is authorized through the national procedure in the EU Member States, is a selective dopamine receptor blocker, (D2) and serotonin (5-HT3), inhibits chemoreceptors residing within the trigger, lessens the sensitivity of the nerves that transmit impulses visceral the pylorus and duodenum to induce vomiting. Reevaluation of drugs containing metoclopramide was initiated in December of 2011, at the request of France, in accordance with the provisions of article 31 of Directive (EC) 2001/83/EC. This was followed by another revaluation metoclopramide-containing drugs used in children, made by EU Member States, as provided for in article 45 of Regulation (EC) No. 1901/2006 on medicinal products for pediatric, and after which, in 2010, it has identified the risk of neurological adverse reactions and have been recommended a series of measures to reduce risk to a minimum.
