Avandamet is a combination of metformin and rosiglitazone, two drugs designed to control blood sugar levels. Avandamet is used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is not for treating type 1 diabetes, and is not recommended to be used in combination with insulin. Avandamet is not approved for patients under age 18.
Take with food if drug upsets stomach. Consult with your doctor before altering dosage. Store away from moisture and heat. If you also take vitamin B12, take only the amount your doctor prescribes. Avandamet is usually part of a larger treatment program that includes diet and exercise.
Patients with severe/uncontrolled heart failure, serious kidney problems, allergy to either rosiglitazone or metformin, or diabetic ketoacidosis should not take Avandamet. Patients who undergo procedures that involve having a dye injected into the veins should temporarily abstain from Avandamet. Avandamet may cause lactic acidosis, a serious condition. Inform your doctor of your medical history and the drugs you use before starting Avandamet. Talk to your doctor about pregnancy and birth control. Women may be more likely to get bone fractures while on rosiglitazone. May affect menstruation. Avoid alcohol during treatment.

Symptoms of lactic acidosis may worsen over time and include: muscle pain/weakness, numbness and cold in limbs, breathing issues, nausea and vomiting, uneven/fast pulse, dizziness. Get emergency help for a possible allergic reaction. Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you experience serious effects, including: vision changes, lightheadedness, anemia symptoms, heart attack/heart failure symptoms, liver problem symptoms, severe skin reaction. Other effects include: upset digestion, headache, dizziness, joint pain.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
