They are used interchangeably but to my understanding, typically a reactant is what you refer to in a balanced chemical equation and a reagent is a term used in the lab. I think we use reagent more because we deal with chemistry connected to biology and learn more through biological examples. Using either should be appropriate in my opinion.
