What side effects does Prandin, (repaglinide) cause?

Prandin can result in dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) if you take too much of it or if you take it at the wrong times. If you have low blood sugar, you may feel sweaty, irritable, shaky, or cold. Eat or drink something with sugar to help raise your blood sugar levels quickly. A coma is possible.Many people find that a glass of orange juice, honey, milk, or a piece of hard candy works well.

Other side effects may include joint or back pain, stomach problems (constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting), sinus or respiratory congestion, and headache. Seek emergency care if you have an allergic reaction to Prandin, marked by hives, itchy rash, difficulty breathing, and swelling of the face and throat. Other severe side effects that require urgent care include chest pain, flu-like symptoms, and any kind of vision problem, including blurred vision.
