Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
Bronsted base
A molecular entity capable of accepting a hydron from a donor (Bronsted acid).
(via organic amino compound )
Biological Role(s): dopaminergic antagonist
A drug that binds to but does not activate dopamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of dopamine or exogenous agonists.
A xenobiotic (Greek, xenos "foreign"; bios "life") is a compound that is foreign to a living organism. Principal xenobiotics include: drugs, carcinogens and various compounds that have been introduced into the environment by artificial means.
Application(s): antiemetic
A drug used to prevent nausea or vomiting. An antiemetic may act by a wide range of mechanisms: it might affect the medullary control centres (the vomiting centre and the chemoreceptive trigger zone) or affect the peripheral receptors.
dopaminergic antagonist
A drug that binds to but does not activate dopamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of dopamine or exogenous agonists.
gastrointestinal drug
A drug used for its effects on the gastrointestinal system, e.g. controlling gastric acidity, regulating gastrointestinal motility and water flow, and improving digestion.

General Comments
2011-01-12 Metoclopramide is a dopamine D2 antagonist. It is used (particularly as the monohydrochloride monohydrate, commonly known as metoclopramide hydrochloride) to increase motility of the upper gastrointestinal tract in disorders such as gastro-oesophageal reflux, and for the treatment of nausea and vomiting associated with various gastrointestinal disorders, with migraine, following surgery, and with cancer therapy. Although chemically related to procainamide, metoclopramide does not possess local anaesthetic or anti-arrhythmic properties.
2014-07-16 Metoclopramide can be found in blood and urine samples of individuals who have taken this drug.
