Prandin (Repaglinide) is used alone or in combination with other medications to control high blood sugar in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Along with a proper diet and exercise program, it plays a crucial role in managing blood glucose levels to prevent complications associated with uncontrolled diabetes.

Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent a range of serious complications linked to diabetes, including kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, sexual function problems, and the risk of heart attack or stroke. This emphasizes the broader impact of blood sugar management in reducing the risk of severe health issues.

Repaglinide works by stimulating the body to produce more insulin. Insulin is a natural substance that enables the body to properly utilize sugar from the diet, thereby contributing to the regulation of blood glucose levels.


  • Take Prandin within 30 minutes before each meal, as prescribed by your healthcare provider (usually 2-4 times daily).
  • Skip the dose if you're skipping a meal or have low blood sugar.
  • Tell your healthcare provider about all medications you take, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, and herbal products. This is crucial to avoid potential interactions.
  • Follow your healthcare provider's instructions carefully if switching from another diabetes medication to Prandin.
  • Take Prandin regularly as prescribed for optimal benefit.
  • Follow your healthcare provider's recommendations regarding meal plans, exercise program, and medication regimen.
  • Monitor your blood sugar regularly as directed. Keep track of the results and share them with your healthcare provider. This helps determine the correct dosage.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your blood sugar is too high or too low. Your treatment plan might need adjustments.


  • Don't take Prandin at any other time besides within 30 minutes before a meal.
  • Don't take a missed dose if it's close to your next mealtime. Just wait and take the medication before your next meal.
  • Don't take a double dose to make up for a missed one. Stick to your regular schedule.
  • Don't adjust your dosage yourself. Always consult your healthcare provider for dosage changes.

Prandin may cause blurred vision, dizziness, or drowsiness due to blood sugar changes. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or activities requiring alertness or clear vision until your blood sugar is stable.

Limit alcohol consumption while taking Prandin as it can increase the risk of low blood sugar.

Stressful situations like fever, infection, injury, or surgery can make blood sugar control more difficult. Consult your healthcare provider as your treatment plan, medications, or blood sugar testing might need adjustment.

Prandin should only be used during pregnancy if clearly necessary. Discuss a plan with your healthcare provider for managing blood sugar while pregnant. Your healthcare provider might change your diabetes treatment regimen.
