  • Nausea, stomach upset, diarrhea or metallic taste may occur initially as your body adjusts to the medication.
  • If stomach symptoms recur later (after you are on the same dose for several days or more), tell your doctor immediately.
  • A late recurrence of stomach symptoms may be due to lactic acidosis.

  • The symptoms include chills, cold sweat, dizziness, drowsiness, shaking, rapid heart rate, weakness, headache, fainting, tingling of the hands or feet, or hunger.
  • It is a good habit to carry glucose tablets or gel to treat low blood sugar.
  • If you are in a situation where you don t have these reliable forms of glucose, eat a quick source of sugar such as table sugar, honey, or candy, or drink a glass of orange juice or non-diet soda to quickly raise your blood sugar level.
  • Tell your doctor immediately about the reaction.
  • To help prevent hypoglycemia, eat meals on a regular schedule and do not skip meals.
