Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum observed plasma concentration (Cmax) of metformin [ Time Frame: 0, 0.5, 1,1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post-dose on Days 5 and 10 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the plasma concentration vs time curve over the dosing interval, at steady state (AUCtau) of metformin [ Time Frame: 0, 0.5, 1,1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post-dose on Days 5 and 10 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: From time of signed informed consent to time of follow-up phone call, an expected average of 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Maximum observed plasma concentration (Cmax) of ranolazine and metabolites [ Time Frame: 0, 0.5, 1,1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post-dose on Day 10 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve over the dosing interval, at steady state (AUCtau) of ranolazine and metabolites [ Time Frame: 0, 0.5, 1,1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post-dose on Day 10 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Single cohort, 2-period study:

  • Period 1, metformin 1000 mg bid on Days 1-5
  • Period 2, metformin 1000 mg bid + ranolazine 500 mg bid on Days 6-10
Drug: Metformin

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of this study is as follows:

• To evaluate the effect of steady-state ranolazine 500 mg twice daily (bid) on the steady state pharmacokinetics (PK) of metformin in subjects with T2DM.

The secondary objectives of this study are as follows:

  • To examine the safety and tolerability of metformin when co administered with ranolazine 500 mg bid at steady-state in subjects with T2DM.
  • To determine the steady-state PK of ranolazine 500 mg bid in subjects with T2DM receiving metformin.
