How Should Nateglinide Be Stored?

Nateglinide should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture or heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
 
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you skip a meal, you should also skip that nateglinide dose. If you forget to take your dose before your meal, wait until you eat again before taking it. If you eat an extra meal, take an extra dose of medication beforehand. Do not take a double dose.
