I'll be glad to help.

Instead of Reglan, some try erythromycin which can also treat this condition with better tolerated side effect profile than Reglan - its an antibiotic and long term can deplete the colon of good bacteria, so it is suggested to be taken with probiotics.

Wish you best of luck.
