Starlix (nateglinide)

Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp

Starlix (nateglinide) is a type 2 diabetes oral medication in the meglitinide class of drugs. It helps beta cells in the pancreas release more insulin. Because type 2 diabetes medications act in different ways to lower blood glucose levels, providers will often prescribe multiple drugs to a patient. For example, a doctor might prescribe both a biguanide and a sulfonylurea. Several of the more popular combinations of oral drugs can be prescribed together in a single pill. Each medication has its own side effects; read labels carefully to be sure you know what they are.
