Who should not take Avandamet?

You should not take Avandamet if you have severe kidney disease or heart failure. You should also avoid this drug if you have diabetic ketoacidosis. Other medical conditions may not prevent you from taking Avandamet, but you should discuss them thoroughly with your doctor. If you are having diagnostic imaging done that requires the use of injectable dye, you'll need to stop taking Avandamet temporarily to prevent an interaction.
