Who should not take Avandaryl?

You should not take Avandaryl 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 Avandaryl, 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 Avandaryl temporarily to prevent an interaction. Remember, Avandaryl is not for the treatment of type 1 diabetes and should not be used by type 1 diabetics. Avandaryl is not safe for pregnant women. However, it is important to continue diabetes control during pregnancy. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, talk with your doctor about your diabetes treatment options.

You should not take Avandaryl if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, or if you've had an allergic reaction to other medications called sulfonamide derivatives. Tell your doctor about any drug allergies or medication reactions you've had in the past.
