Prandin

Prandin (repaglinide) is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. Prandin is used together with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes. Prandin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. Prandin is a meglitinide antidiabetic. It works by causing the pancreas to release insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar. Prandin is available only with your doctor's prescription. Before taking this medicine You should not use Prandin if you are allergic to repaglinide, or if you have type 1 diabetes. To make sure Prandin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had: kidney disease (your kidney function may need to be checked before you take this medicine); liver disease; heart disease or congestive heart failure; or if you are on a low-salt diet. Prandin is not expected to harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known whether repaglinide passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using Prandin. Prandin is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old. How should I take Prandin? Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose. Prandin is usually taken within 30 minutes before each meal. Follow your doctor's instructions about how often to take Prandin. Your blood sugar will need to be checked often, and you may need other blood tests at your doctor's office. If you take Prandin with a meal that has no fat, your blood sugar may rise more than if you had a meal with some fat. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can happen to everyone who has diabetes. Symptoms include headache, hunger, sweating, confusion, irritability, dizziness, or feeling shaky. Your blood sugar goal may be different while you take Prandin. Ask your doctor what your blood sugar goals should be and how often you should check your blood sugar. Keep a source of sugar with you in case you have low blood sugar. Sugar sources include fruit juice, hard candy, crackers, raisins, and non-diet soda. Be sure your family and close friends know how to help you in an emergency. If you have severe hypoglycemia and cannot eat or drink, use an injection of glucagon. Your doctor can give you a prescription for a glucagon emergency injection kit and tell you how to give the injection. Hypoglycemia can occur more often when Prandin is taken with certain other diabetes medications. Tell your doctor if you take insulin or albiglutide. If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using repaglinide. You should not stop using Prandin suddenly. Stopping suddenly may make your diabetes worse. Prandin is only part of a complete treatment program that may also include diet, exercise, weight control, regular blood sugar testing, and special medical care. Follow your doctor's instructions very closely. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light. What happens if I miss a dose? Skip the missed dose and take the medicine at your next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose. What happens if I overdose? Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. Overdose can cause severe hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Symptoms may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, irritability, hunger, fast heartbeat, sweating, or feeling jittery. What should I avoid while taking Prandin? Avoid getting up too fast from a sitting or lying position, or you may feel dizzy. Get up slowly and steady yourself to prevent a fall. Alcohol can increase your risk of low blood sugar. Ask your doctor how much alcohol is safe to drink while you are taking Prandin.
