I have polycystic ovary syndrome and i take metformin to control my weight. Does this give me an equal chance of developing lactic acidosis - is it the metformin or the diabietes that would usually contribute to it? Neither my doctor or the pharmasist gave me any reason to stop drinking alcohol but in information about lactic acidosis it gives this as a cause. Any information?? Thanks, Nicki
