  • REPAGLINIDE – ORAL (reh-PAGG-lin-ide)
  • GEMEENSCHAPPELIJKE MERKNAAM(EN) – Prandin

GEBRUIK:

Repaglinide is used alone or with other medications to control high blood sugar along with a proper diet and exercise program. It is used in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. It works by stimulating the body to produce more insulin. Insulin is a natural substance that allows the body to properly use sugar from the diet.

HOE TE GEBRUIKEN?:

  • diarrhea
  • and joint pain may occur

If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Denk eraan dat uw arts dit medicijn heeft voorgeschreven omdat hij of zij heeft geoordeeld dat het voordeel voor u groter is dan het risico op bijwerkingen. Veel mensen die dit medicijn gebruiken, hebben geen ernstige bijwerkingen.

Repaglinide can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) especially if you are taking other medicines for diabetes. Consuming large quantities of alcohol, not getting enough calories from food, or doing unusually heavy exercise may also lead to low blood sugar. Symptoms may include:

  • chills
  • cold sweat
  • duizeligheid
  • slaperigheid
  • shaking
  • snelle hartslag
  • zwakheid
  • hoofdpijn
  • flauwvallen
  • tingling of the hands or feet
  • or hunger

It is a good habit to carry glucose tablets or gel to treat low blood sugar. If you don’t have these reliable forms of glucose, raise your blood sugar quickly by eating a quick source of sugar such as table sugar, honey, candy, or drinking a glass of fruit juice or non-diet soda. Check with your doctor or pharmacist to find out what you should do if you miss a meal.

Symptoms of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) include thirst, increased urination, confusion, drowsiness, flushing, rapid breathing, and fruity breath odor. If these symptoms occur, tell your doctor immediately. Your doctor may need to adjust your diabetes medication(s).

DRUG-INTERACTIES:

De effecten van sommige medicijnen kunnen veranderen als u tegelijkertijd andere medicijnen of kruidenproducten gebruikt. Dit kan uw risico op ernstige bijwerkingen vergroten of ervoor zorgen dat uw medicijnen niet correct werken. Deze geneesmiddelinteracties zijn mogelijk, maar komen niet altijd voor. Uw arts of apotheker kan vaak interacties voorkomen of beheersen door de manier waarop u uw medicijnen gebruikt te veranderen of door nauwlettend toezicht te houden.

Om uw arts en apotheker te helpen u de beste zorg te geven, moet u uw arts en apotheker op de hoogte stellen van alle producten die u gebruikt (inclusief geneesmiddelen op recept, geneesmiddelen zonder recept en kruidenproducten) voordat u met de behandeling met dit product begint. Als u dit product gebruikt, mag u de dosering van andere geneesmiddelen die u gebruikt niet starten, stoppen of wijzigen zonder toestemming van uw arts.

Other medications can affect the removal of repaglinide from your body, which may affect how repaglinide works. Examples include cyclosporine, deferasirox, gemfibrozil, trimethoprim, azole antifungals (such as itraconazole), macrolide antibiotics (such as erythromycin), rifamycins (such as rifabutin), St. John’s wort, among others.

Many drugs can affect your blood sugar levels, making it more difficult to control your blood sugar. Examples include corticosteroids (such as prednisone), psychiatric medicines (such as olanzapine), fluoroquinolone antibiotics (such as ciprofloxacin), among others. Ask your doctor or pharmacist how often to check your blood sugar. Tell your doctor about the results and of any symptoms of high or low blood sugar. (See also Side Effects section.) Your doctor may need to adjust your diabetes medication, exercise program, or diet.

Beta-blocker medications (such as metoprolol, propranolol, glaucoma eye drops such as timolol) may prevent the fast/pounding heartbeat you would usually feel when your blood sugar level falls too low (hypoglycemia). Other symptoms of low blood sugar such as dizziness, hunger, or sweating are unaffected by these drugs.

Check the labels on all your medicines (such as cough-and-cold products) carefully. Some products may contain sugar or alcohol and may affect your blood sugar levels. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about using these products safely.

Other medications can affect the results of urine tests for sugar or ketones. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
