rosiglitazone and metformin. Avandamet is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Rosiglitazone belongs to a class of drugs known as glitazones. Rosiglitazone and metformin lower blood sugar by helping to restore your body's proper response to insulin. Metformin also decreases the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb.
Rosiglitazone may rarely cause or worsen a certain heart problem (heart failure). Tell your doctor right away if you notice any symptoms of heart failure,shortness of breath, swelling ankles/feet, unusual tiredness, unusual/sudden weight gain. Avandamet is not recommended for people with certain types of heart failure. Before using Avandamet, tell your doctor if you have heart failure. Rarely, too much metformin can build up in the body and cause a serious (sometimes fatal) condition called lactic acidosis. Lactic acidosis is more likely if you are an older adult, if you have kidney or liver disease, dehydration, heart failure, heavy alcohol use, if you have surgery, if you have X-ray or scanning procedures that use iodinated contrast, or if you are using certain drugs. For some conditions, your doctor may tell you to stop taking Avandamet for a short time. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details. Stop taking Avandamet and get medical help right away if you have any symptoms of lactic acidosis, such as unusual tiredness, dizziness, severe drowsiness, chills, blue/cold skin, muscle pain, fast/difficult breathing, slow/irregular heartbeat, or stomach pain with nausea/vomiting/diarrhea.

Before you start, stop, or change any medication, talk with your doctor or pharmacist about how the medication may affect your blood sugar.
