For Diabetes, Type 2 "Took metformin to no effect for six years. In six weeks Prandin has dropped me into the 90s, something I thought I would never see. Doctor admits being surprised by the results and has taken me off insulin pen. Overall results are remarkable. Supposed to take three 0.5 mg but usually just take two, three knocks me down to where I have to eat ice cream. That's not so bad though, just unexpected."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "There is a generic brand called Repaglinide if you are looking for the lower costs. Most insurances will cover this. I was on metformin for a couple of years only to be running to the bathroom every time I used it. This product has little side effects and works better."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "I have been using 0.5 mg for over a year and it has worked well for me. I have no side effects but am worried for effects that may surface in the long run. As with any medication the ultimate goal should be to be free of the need for it but in the absence of such possibility my aim is to keep a look out for medications with the least amount of interference in the natural abilities of my body/organs. "

For Diabetes, Type 2 "No side effects,only stayed on it for 30 days, seemed to be doing a pretty good job of keeping blood levels around 110, reason I dropped it was because my insurance does not cover it and it's REALLY expensive, $3.50 t0 $4.00 bucks a pill."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "I've used Prandin and its generic, repaglinide for more than 25 years, with no side effects and good predictable sugar control. I take 1-2mg per meal, depending if I am eating a light or full meal. I still watch my carbs (no white bread, white flour, white rice, or potato .Sweet potato is fine as it has a low glycemic index). Most often I take 2mg before each meal."
