Who should not take repaglinide?

You should not take repaglinide (Prandin) if you have type 1 diabetes -- this is a drug for type 2 diabetes. You also shouldn't take it if you're allergic to repaglinide or any of the inactive ingredients of this medication.

Don't take repaglinide if you're on the cholesterol-lowering drug gemfibrozil (Lopid) -- talk with your doctor about which of these drugs is more important for you. You also should not take this drug if you have diabetic ketoacidosis, a condition in which the body burns fat for fuel, instead of sugar.
