Reglan for stomach pain

Has anyone else ever had to take this? I get severe stomach pain after I eat to the point of sending me to the E.R. When I wasn't pregnant I would just not eat or live off of ice-cream or some kind of liquid but being pregnant I know the baby needs food. Since this is 'unexplained' pain the only thing the doctors can think to do is have me take this to stop the pain. I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice on this. Thanks ladies!

With my first pregnancy my OB prescribed it for acid reflux. I had it so severe it was choking me in my sleep. It did help somewhat, but I still had to watch what I ate because anything acidic would still flare me up. I was also given this to increase my milk supply at one point... Just thought I should mention that a side effect is that it can cause increased anxiety. I never knew that until after the fact, but I wish my OB had let me know ahead of time...

Reglan is used to treat acid reflux and has been known to increase breast milk production.
