Delayed gastric emptying. It's a condition that affects the stomach muscles and prevents proper stomach emptying. Gastroparesis can affect digestion. The cause might be damage to a nerve that controls stomach muscles.. Treatment consists of diet modifications. Medications to stimulate the stomach muscles. These medications include metoclopramide (Reglan) and erythromycin. Treatment usually doesn’t cure the disease, but you can manage it and keep it under control.. Reglan.....Erythromycin....Gstric electrical stimulation,( Surgical )
