What should I do if I overdose on sodium lactate?

Although a healthcare professional will monitor your sodium lactate treatment very carefully, it's possible to overdose. People with congestive heart failure, kidney problems and edema (swelling due to water retention) may be at an increased risk for sodium lactate overdose. If you do overdose, your healthcare provider will adjust your dosage and give you any additional treatment necessary to stop any side effects or symptoms. To reduce your risk for overdose, make sure to tell your doctor about any medical conditions you have and all medications you're taking, before starting sodium lactate treatment.
