If it is taken as the doctor orders, while there may be a risk of side effects, the risk of running high blood sugars is greater. The risk of taking it has to be weighed against the risk of not taking it. This is something you can discuss with your doctor. Some side effects are: blood in urine or painful urination,

feeling short of breath, especially when lying down;

swelling or rapid weight gain;

pale skin, feeling light-headed, rapid heart rate, trouble concentrating;

sudden unusual pain in your hand, arm, or foot; or

nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Less serious Actoplus Met side effects may include:

headache;

diarrhea, upset stomach; or

sneezing, runny nose, cough or other signs of a cold.
