Is repaglinide (Prandin) used alone?

Repaglinide (Prandin) is not always used alone in treating type 2 diabetes. If your blood sugar does not go down enough, your doctor may add another medicine. In fact, the medicine PrandiMet is a combination of repaglinide and another diabetes drug, metformin.

While you're on repaglinide, you should follow closely your doctor's instructions for blood tests. This will help make sure your medicine is working properly, and alert your doctor if you need to take other steps to control your type 2 diabetes.
