Sodium Lactate Injection is an electrolyte replenisher and systemic alkalizer used as a source of bicarbonate for prevention or control of mild to moderate metabolic acidosis in patients with restricted oral intake whose oxidative processes are not seriously impaired. Common side effects of sodium lactate injection are essentially limited to overdosage of either sodium or lactate ions and may include:

  • dilution of other blood electrolyte concentrations
  • overhydration
  • congested states, or
  • pulmonary edema

Sodium Lactate Injection 50 mEq (5 mEq/ mL) dose is administered intravenously only after addition to a larger volume of fluid. Sodium Lactate Injection may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Sodium Lactate should be used only if prescribed. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
