What should I do if I miss a dose of repaglinide?

What to do when you miss a dose of repaglinide (Prandin) depends on how soon you remember to take it. Repaglinide, a drug for type 2 diabetes, is normally taken before a meal -- any time from 30 minutes before to immediately before you eat. If you remember your dose while you’re still eating, take it then. If you have finished eating, skip the missed dose and wait until your next meal. Do not double up on a dose to make up for the one you missed.
