How can I minimize the side effects of Prandin?

To minimize the side effects of Prandin (repaglinide), take the type 2 diabetes medication before meals, as directed, and monitor your blood sugar levels routinely. Doing so will help you avoid experiencing blood sugar levels that are too high or too low.

Tell your doctor if you become sick, have a fever, need surgery, or have a serious injury. All these conditions can affect your blood sugar level, and your doctor may have to lower your dose or give you a substitute medication. It's also important to tell your doctor if you develop any new medical conditions, because some can raise your risk of side effects from Prandin.

Before you start taking Prandin, tell your doctor about all your other medications (prescription and over-the-counter), and dietary or herbal supplements. Some can interact with Prandin, raising your risk of side effects. Once you're on Prandin, don't start a new medicine or supplement without talking with your doctor first.
