Metoclopramide is an antiemetic used to treat nausea and vomiting. It works by stopping the action of chemicals known as dopamine and serotonin. These chemicals are involved in initiating vomiting. Metoclopramide also increases the rate at which your stomach empties, which helps to relieve the symptoms of nausea and vomiting.
