I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and have to take Metformin. Being on Metformin puts me already at risk for Lactic Acidosis ((including kidney or liver problems)) but drinking large amounts of alcohol with Metformin also increases your risk for lactic acidosis. While small amounts of alcohol should not be a problem for most people taking Metformin avoiding alcohol entirely might be a good idea.
I could chance it, but honestly, I would prefer not to. I am sort of a better safe than sorry type. I know, no fun. lol But, I landed once in the hospital for medication issues.
