What is the difference between Metformin Hcl Er 500mg and Metformin Er 500mg?
My husband and I are both on Metformin but he takes the Er 500 and I take the Hcl Er 500? He still works and exercises but I'm retired on disability and unable to exercise much because of post polio problems. Does that make a difference in what we take? We do not have the same doctors. ## There is no difference, they are both the exact same thing. The HCL just designates it as a hydrochloride salt and in one instance it was included in the wording, in the other it was left off. This is an oral antidiabetic agent. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and low blood sugar.

oblong white pill from mexico
left my metformin home when I went on a cruise. stopped in mexico at a pharmacy right when you get off the ship....bought a bottle that says mevicfor but white imprint and oblong shape...on side states victory enterpises S.A.DE C.V ## This is listed as containing 500mgs of Metformin, but that's the best I can do, there's no way to know if that's really what you've purchased, since it's foreign. Metformin may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I bought this metformin right off the pier in a pharmacy not on the street but my concern is due to nothing on the pill indicating it is metformin...however it is listed 500mg on the bottle

combitic Global Caplet PVT METFORMIN??
I received Metformin in packets. They have no imprint and upon further I discovered that they do NOT manufacture METFORMIN. I am outraged. Is this the case. I will have to file a dispute and order real Metformin asap I need it for my diabetes. Is this fraud ## where did u get the metformin it in a seal medicine packet and how do u know that it isn't metformin..sometime foreign medicine do not have markings because they are not FDA approved...that's why you are able to buy without a script. look on the side of the bottle and see where it was made. ## Hello, Emmy! How are you? Where did you order them from? If they were dispensed to you by a U.S. pharmacy, then you need to return to them to have the issue looked into, however, if you ordered from some other source, then ...

Reclimet For Diabetes - Side Effects?
I am a Diabetic for nearly 40 years. For the last few years, I am taking 'Reclimet" daily. What are the possible side effects? Could it trigger higher blood pressure? Thanks. ## Sir, May I know how you managed diabetes for the last 40 years? I am quite young and type II diabetic. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Btw, I use recliment. My BP is 120/90 when I checked today. But donot know if it is because of the tablet, as I dont do regular exercise. ## Thanks. By God's grace, my type II Diabetes is fairly under control, with tablets only. Being a vegetarian and reducing consumption of rice (staple food), has helped, I think. The higher BP level has been recently detected. I am not sure, however, whether Reclimet might be one of the causes for elevated BP. ## Wh...
