Buy Starlix brand or generic Nateglinide prescription drug from Canada
Why is Starlix prescribed?
Nateglinide (Starlix) is prescribed alone or in combination with other medications and a proper, healthy diet to control high blood sugar levels of patients with Type II Diabetes Mellitus.
What does it do?
Nateglinide, classified as a meglitinide, is an anti-diabetic drug that primarily works by stimulation of the beta cells in the pancreas to release insulin thus; lowering the production of glucose that can be present in the blood and increases the insulin receptor activity, hence, lowers blood sugar level.
How should I take it?
Starlix is currently available as a 120mg tablet. Each tablet should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Starlix?
Before taking Nateglinide, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had diabetic ketoacidosis, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) and thyroid disease.
Avoid drinking alcohol as this may cause dizziness or drowsiness which can add to the effects of Nateglinide.
Consult your doctor regarding all the other medications you use before getting surgery.
