white,oval,48 on one side 93 on other side. Is not scored, made by Teva. Can I cut in half? I've not used this brand before. It doesn't have the taste of usual tablet made by APOT.

I had the dead mouse and the major fish. I stopped because of stomach pain from the chinese manu that seemed to win all the local contracts. High A1C as a result of these games.

To clear up some things asked about or mentioned in these posts…

No, it is not safe to cut any tablet that is time released, as denoted by the ER in the first post. Doing say may result in your getting too much of the medication, at once, which could lead to overdose.

However, the tablet made by Teva with the 93 48 marking is not a time released tablet, it is a regular release and it is safe to cut or break.

Metformin does have a very foul odor, some companies coat their tablets or use other ingredients to mask it, so it isn't so noticeable, but the odor is quite normal and very awful.

Stomach pain can be a normal side effect of the medication.

Are there any other questions or comments?
