Be sure to keep a source of sugar available on you. In addition, if you need an x-ray or ct scan that requires dye to be injected into your veins you may need to stop taking Glocophage temporarily. Talk to your doctor about this.

If you believe you have symptoms of lactic acidosis, seek medical attention immediately.
