From Cary, North Carolina, USA:

My husband was taking Starlix [nateglinide] at the time we conceived our first child, and I have read that women should not take this during pregnancy and didn't know if it applied to the male also. Are there any concerns about the male taking a drug like this at the time of conception?


I do not think this is a problem. I would defer to the package insert for any data disclosed by the manufacturer related to this.
