Repaglinide-Metformin Information

Repaglinide and metformin (PrandiMet™) is a product that contains two different diabetes medications: repaglinide (Prandin®) and metformin hydrochloride (Fortamet®, Glucophage®, Glucophage XR®, Glumetza®, or Riomet®).
 
As a combination medication, it works in several ways. For example, repaglinide and metformin can:
 
  • Help the pancreas produce more insulin
  • Improve the body's response to insulin
  • Decrease the amount of sugar produced by the liver.
  •  
This medication comes in tablet form and is generally taken two or three times a day before meals. Side effects may include low blood sugar, headaches, and diarrhea.
 
In order to determine if repaglinide and metformin is the right medication for you, your healthcare provider needs information on your complete medical history and any other medicines you are taking -- including nonprescription products, vitamins, and supplements. This drug is not right for everyone, and it can react negatively with certain medications.
