Meglitinides


Meglitinides is available with the generic name Repaglinide (Prandin). It helps the pancreas to produce more insulin right after meals which lowers blood sugar. Its effect is much similar to short acting sulfonylureas. Meglitinides works quickly, and the results fade rapidly, so your doctor might prescribe Repaglinide only or with Metformin.

Side Effects:

  • weight gain
  • low blood sugar
