Nateglinide with Metformin

Nateglinide with Metformin

Nateglinide with Metformin is a combination medication used to manage blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. It combines two distinct antidiabetic agents, nateglinide and metformin, to enhance glycemic control through complementary mechanisms of action.


This combination is indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults when diet and exercise alone do not provide adequate glycemic control.


The dosage of Nateglinide with Metformin should be individualized based on the patient's response and tolerability. It is typically taken with meals to optimize its effectiveness. Consult with a healthcare professional for specific dosage recommendations.


This medication is contraindicated in individuals with a history of hypersensitivity to nateglinide, metformin, or any of the components in the formulation. It is also contraindicated in patients with severe renal impairment, hepatic insufficiency, or metabolic acidosis.
