Metformin Hcl Er Tab 500mg in Mexico
4 Replies RSS
What is the name for Metformin HCL ER TAB 500mg ER in Mexico? ## I can't say for certain, but from what I could gather, Metformina (Glucophage XR) is the correct name for this in Mexico. Are you trying to order it online? ## Similar to your other question, once again, I have to advise you that it's best to just ask for the generic. The regulation of medications in Mexico is very sketchy, at best, so what may be available as a brand name for it today might not exist tomorrow and etc. However, the Spanish names that they use for the generic/active ingredient are usually very similar to what we use in the U.S. and that should enable you to find what you need. Learn more Metformin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you very much, I appreciate this informa... ...

Metformin Hcl 500 Mg does it +up to 1000er
2 Replies RSS
Is two 500 hcl metformin the same as 1000 er ## Hi tam, Not entirely. While the dosage certainly adds up to 1000mg, there is still a big difference between immediate release formulas and extended (time-released) formulas. The time-released tablets are more geared towards 24 hour - around the clock pain relief; while the standard immediate release tabs are said to be more ideal for short term pain management patients. Whether you take 500mg or 1000mg of Metformin, the time-release effect will always outlast the immediate release effect in terms of longer pain relief (although some patients claim the immediate release formula to have a stronger effect, since it hits you all at once, per say). I hope this explanation helps! ## Only if they are also time released, since you listed ER by the... ...
