Pharmacologic Category

Antidiabetic Agents; Meglitinides. (ATC-Code: A10BX02).

Mechanism of action

Nonsulfonylurea hypoglycemic agent of meglitinide class used in management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Stimulates insulin release from pancreatic β-cells.

Therapeutic use

Management of type 2 diabetes mellitus (non-insulin-dependent) as adjunct to diet and exercise. May be used in combination with metformin or thiazolidinediones.

Pregnancy and lactiation implications

Use of oral agents generally not recommended as routine management of GDM or type 2 diabetes mellitus during pregnancy. Insulin is drug of choice for control of diabetes mellitus during pregnancy. Use not recommended in nursing women.

Unlabeled use


Hypersensitivity to repaglinide or any component of the formulation. Diabetic ketoacidosis, with or without coma. Type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent).

Warnings and precautions

Repaglinide may cause hypoglycemia. Use with caution in adrenal and/or pituitary impairment (may be more susceptible to glucose-lowering effects). Theoretically, repaglinide may increase cardiovascular events, but there are no long-term studies assessing this concern. Use with caution in moderate-to-severe hepatic impairment, and in severe renal impairment (may be more susceptible to glucose-lowering effects). It may be necessary to discontinue repaglinide and administer insulin if patient exposed to stress (fever, trauma, infection, surgery). Not indicated for use in combination with NPH insulin. Use with caution in malnourished patients (may be more susceptible to glucose-lowering effects).
