Prandin is meglitinide antidiabetic that is used in the treatment of Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes for patients who cannot control it with diet and exercise alone.
Use Prandin the way it is prescribed by your doctor. Follow the directions on the label. Take Prandin at least 15-30 minutes before each meal. Do not take it on an empty stomach, only with meal.
THE MECHANISM OF ACTION
Prandin is an antidiabetic agent. It works by reducing the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood and stimulates the release of insulin out of the pancreas. Prandin is useless for diabetes of the 1 type (insulin-dependent), because in this condition the pancreas is not able to extract insulin.

I can hardly believe that I spent so much money on brand drugs. Your generic drugs act the same way the brand ones do but they cost much more cheaper. Thank you. Now I know about your site and will buy again and again.
