Recent FDA Alert(s) for repaglinide
Sep 29, 2003
Audience: Endocrinologists, pharmacists and other healthcare providersNovo Nordisk and FDA revised the PRECAUTIONS/Drug Interaction section of the prescribing information to inform healthcare professionals of a drug-drug interaction between repaglinide (PRANDIN), a short-acting insulin secretagogue, and gemfibrozil (Lopid) a lipid-lowering agent used to treat dyslipidemia.
A study that evaluated the co-administration of gemfibrozil with PRANDIN in healthy subjects found a significant increase in repaglinide blood levels. Concomitant use may result in enhanced and prolonged blood glucose-lowering effects of repaglinide. For patients already on PRANDIN and gemfibrozil, blood glucose levels should be monitored and PRANDIN dose adjustment may be needed.
