I am so glad that my doctor ordered Prandin for my diabetes type 2. I have been using it for the past three months and 100% satisfied with the results. Before , I used to be worried about checking my diabetes. I used metformin with glyburide and lantus injection. The results were unfavorable. Now I am not afraid to check my diabetes since the reading is where I wanted it. Great pill. I am so pleased. Now, Health First told me that they do not cover that pill. and so I discussed it with my doctor. If I have to scrape the last penny to buy it, I will keep on using this pill.

It has dramatically lowered my blood sugar levels. The first week was pure torture, as it tends to give you the runs. After that it eased up. One bad side effect is the weight gain. I am working on that aspect, but if I cannot start losing weight, bye bye Prandin.

My sugar was very out of control, now that I am taking Prandin my sugar is wonderful. For me this has been a wonderful drug and my dosage is only .5mg. If you are having trouble keeping your sugar down this is absolutely a drug to ask your doctor about!!!

I have taken the drug for 7 years I have been on the lowest dose.Before on once a day meds. I had lows at odd times of the day. With Prandin I could have more self controll. Now since I am on diuretics, and unable to exercise, I find my blood sugar going higher than normal. I am going to see my doctor to raise the dosage. I don't want to lose the ability of self control.
