The diabetes drug Prandin (repaglinide) can interact with a number of other medications, including:
  • aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • certain arthritis drugs
  • certain blood pressure medications
  • beta blockers
  • barbiturates
  • corticosteroids
  • diuretics

This is just a partial list. Before you start Prandin, be sure to tell your doctor about all your other medications (prescription and over-the-counter), as well as dietary and herbal supplements.

You do not have to avoid any specific foods while taking Prandin. However, this type 2 diabetes medication works best when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
