Who should avoid taking meglitinide?

Meglitinide is a medication prescribed especially for people with type 2 diabetes. However, it is not suitable for every person with type 2 diabetes. It is therefore important, before you even start taking meglitinide, to make sure your doctor knows about:
  • Any allergies you have, especially an allergy to this medication.
  • Any health conditions you have besides diabetes, especially any diseases of the liver, kidneys, or adrenal or pituitary glands.
  • Anything else you take for your health, like vitamins, herbal supplements, or other over-the-counter and prescription medications.
