Prandin Repaglinide and/or alternatives

of Prandin

Prandin is a drug used as an oral diabetes medication. The key role of Prandin is to keep a check on the blood sugar levels in the body. It helps the pancreas produce insulin, which regulates blood sugar levels and prevents them from going out of control. The generic name of Prandin is repaglinide.

Patients can buy Prandin in three different strengths: Prandin 0.5mg, Prandin 1mg and Prandin 2mg.

Indications & Dosage of Prandin

Prandin is indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is often used in combination with certain drugs in order to treat this condition. It may also be prescribed for other purposes by the doctor.

Prandin administration should be done only according to the doctor’s prescription. Altering the dosage may result in several health complications. The regular daily dose of Prandin should range between two to four times a day. It is generally taken before meals with a time gap of around half an hour.

Blood sugar tests need to be conducted regularly during treatment with Prandin. Appointments with the doctor should not be skipped. In case low blood sugar symptoms crop up, it is best to carry a fruit juice, hard candy, or any other source of sugar on your person.

It must be remembered that Prandin is just part of a complete treatment plan. To get the best results, one must adhere to the recommended regime. Lastly, the drug should be stored in proper conditions.
