Starlix is used for lowering blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. It is used along with diet and exercise. It may also be used for other conditions. Starlix is an antidiabetic agent. It works by lowering blood glucose levels, causing insulin to be released from beta cells of the pancreas. Starlix is also known as Nateglinide, Fastic, Glinate, Glunat, Starsis, Trazec.
Take Starlix by mouth 1 to 30 minutes before meals. If you skip a meal, you must also skip your scheduled dose to avoid the risk of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia).
If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Starlix suddenly.
