What are the side effects of Actoplus Met?

Common side effects of Actoplus Met may involve cold symptoms like sneezing or a runny nose, feeling dizzy, experiencing mild diarrhea or nausea, having stomach pain or vomiting, and joint or muscle pain. Women taking Actoplus Met are more likely to get fractures and other bone injuries.

Other side effects are more serious and may indicate a dangerous condition. If you feel weak, especially sleepy or cold, lightheaded or like you’re going to faint, pain in your stomach, or like your heart rate has slowed or that you’re having trouble breathing, go to the hospital immediately, as these may be signs of a life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis.

Also seek immediate emergency help if you have an allergic reaction to the drug. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include an itchy rash, hives, breathing difficulty, or swelling in your mouth, throat, or face.

Other side effects that would warrant call to your doctor include fast weight gain, jaundice, dark-colored urine and clay-colored bowel movements, feeling short of breath for no apparent reason, or having a mild fever with stomach pain and a loss of appetite.
