REPAGLINIDE - ORAL

(reh-PAGG-lin-ide)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Prandin

USES: Repaglinide is used alone or with other medications to control high blood sugar along with a proper diet and exercise program. It is used in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. It works by stimulating the body to produce more insulin. Insulin is a natural substance that allows the body to properly use sugar from the diet.

HOW TO USE: Read the Patient Information leaflet if one is available from your pharmacist before you start using repaglinide and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth 15 minutes before each meal, usually 2-4 times daily depending on the number of meals or as directed by your doctor. Take this drug no earlier than 30 minutes before the meal. You may also take it just before the meal if necessary. Do not take a dose of medication if you are skipping that meal or if your blood sugar is low.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

If you are changing from a different anti-diabetes drug (such as chlorpropamide) to repaglinide, follow your doctor's directions carefully for stopping the old drug and starting this medication.

Use this medication regularly as directed by your doctor in order to get the most benefit from it. Carefully follow the medication treatment plan, meal plan, and exercise program your doctor has recommended.

Check your blood sugar regularly as directed by your doctor. Keep track of the results, and share them with your doctor. This is very important in order to determine the correct dose. Tell your doctor if your blood sugar measurements are too high or too low. Your treatment plan may need to be changed.
