WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Impaired Renal Function
  • Patients with renal impairment should not receive PrandiMet…
 
Drug Interactions
  • Repaglinide is partly metabolized by CYP2C8 and CYP3A4 and appears to be a substrate for active hepatic uptake transporter (organic anion transporting protein OATP1B1). Drugs that inhibit CYP2C8, CYP3A4, or OATP1B1 (e.g., cyclosporine) may increase plasma concentrations of repaglinide. Dose reduction of repaglinide may be needed.
 

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Pregnancy
Pregnancy Category C
  • There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women with Prandimet or its individual components. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, Prandimet like other antidiabetic medications, should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. No animal studies have been conducted with the combined products in Prandimet. The following data are based on findings in studies performed with repaglinide or metformin individually.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Drug Interactions
  • Gemfibrozil significantly increased repaglinide exposure. Therefore, patients should not take PrandiMet with gemfibrozil
  • Drugs that inhibit OATP1B1 (e.g., cyclosporine) may have the potential to increase plasma concentrations of repaglinide
