How Should This Medication Be Stored?

Repaglinide 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 repaglinide dose. If you forget to take the medication before your meal, wait until you eat again before taking it. If you eat an extra meal, take an extra dose before that meal. Never take a double dose of repaglinide.
