Do not use sodium lactate for the treatment of lactic acidosis (characterized by low pH in body tissues and blood) or severe metabolic acidosis (condition when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body) or for treatment of severe potassium deficiency.
Seek immediate medical attention in case of fluid overloading resulting in electrolyte imbalances, overhydration, congested states, pulmonary edema or acid-base imbalance.
Exercise caution in patients with alkalosis or at risk for alkalosis (an excessively alkaline condition of the body fluids or tissues, which may cause weakness or cramp), patients with severe kidney impairment, hypervolemia (fluid overload), overhydration, or conditions that may cause sodium retention, fluid overload, or edema.
Tell your doctor if you are or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
Do not take if patient is allergic to sodium lactate or any of its ingredients.
Do not take if patients with hypervolemia, severe kidney insufficiency, uncompensated heart failure, hyperkalemia (high serum potassium concentration), hypercalcaemia ((high serum calcium concentration), metabolic alkalosis, ascitic cirrhosis (accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity).
Do not take patients with conditions associated with increased lactate levels (hyperlactatemia) including lactic acidosis, or impaired lactate utilization, such as severe liver insufficiency and patients taking concomitant digitalis therapy.
The concentration of intravenous infusion solution should not exceed 3.2 g (43 mmol)/l.
Do not take potassium chloride if you have kidney, heart problems, high blood pressure or high blood potassium level.
Avoid using potassium chloride, if you have Addison disease (adrenal gland disorder); severe tissue injury such as burn; severe dehydration, blockage of stomach or intestine or diarrhea from long time.
Interaction with alcohol is unknown. Please consult your doctor.
WEIGH RISKS VS BENEFITS
Ringer Lactate Infusion may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
No information is available on the use of Ringer Lactate Infusion during lactation. Please consult your doctor.
Not relevant, as Ringer Lactate Infusion is intended for use in hospitalised patients.
Ringer Lactate Infusion should be used with caution in patients with kidney disease. Dose adjustment of Ringer Lactate Infusion may be needed. Please consult your doctor.
Ringer Lactate Infusion is probably safe to use in patients with liver disease. Limited data available suggests that dose adjustment of Ringer Lactate Infusion may not be needed in these patients. Please consult your doctor.
