Drug Mode of Action ::
Repaglinide stimulates release of insulin from pancreatic ?-cells by inhibiting K efflux via closure of ATP regulated K channels. This results in depolarization of the cell and opening of voltage-dependent Ca channels, which increases influx of Ca into the beta cells and causes release of insulin.
Drug Interactions ::
Cytochrome P450 3A4 inducers eg. rifampicin, barbiturates and carbamazepine may increase repaglinide metabolism. NSAIDs and other highly protein bound drugs eg, salicylates, sulphonamides, phenylbutazone, oral anticoagulants and hydantoins may potentiate action of repaglinide. Ketoconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole and erythromycin may increase plasma conc of repaglinide. Antagonistic effect with drugs causing hyperglycaemia. Concurrent use with gemfibrozil may lead to enhanced and prolonged blood glucose lowering effect. Potentially Fatal: Increased risk of myocardial infarction when used with isophane insulin.
