Are there any risks associated with taking Starlix?

Starlix (nateglinide) can be associated with the following risks:

  • allergic reaction
  • dangerous drop in blood sugar if too much Starlix is taken or the medication dose is not followed by a meal (Make sure you keep a sugary food product with you at all times to combat this risk, as low blood sugar can result in seizures and death.)
  • unpredictable shifts in blood sugar (if diet and exercise regimen are not maintained while on Starlix)
  • drug interactions, resulting in high or low blood sugar (Ask your doctor about all possible drug interactions before starting to take this drug.)
