I had my prescription filled and it says 500mg er tab amne, underneath was typed substituted for metformin 500 mg er tab wats, what's the difference ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Sorry about the confusion, pharmacies should really be a bit more precise, but I'm happy to clear this up for you. :-) The only difference is the manufacturer, the original one was manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, which is what the wats stands for and the new one is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals, as designated by the amne. Rather than saying it's a substitute, they should really have just put a notice on it that it is the same medication, but may look different than that which you'd received before.

I HAVE 2 BOTTLES OF METFORMIN HCL TAB 500MG. ONE BOTTLE HAS WHITE ROUND TABLET A/12 ON IT AND THE OTHER HAS WHITE OVAL TABLET a logo and 4331/500 ON IT. ARE THESE THE SAME MEDICATIONS? COULD THEY BE GENERIC AND THE OTHER BRAND NAME MEDICATION? ## I have two bottles of Metformin HLC Tabs. One is a refill for the other. The tabs are different shapes made by different companies. Same strength is the same. Is this a mistake. ## This type of thing does confuse many people, which is why I think more medications should be standardized as to how they look. However, right now they aren't, so you can receive the same medication, manufactured by different companies and they may look completely differently.

i have b taken for 2 week and my belly look like i going to blow out ## Hello Anita! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Metformin, which the FDA classifies as an oral anti-diabetic medication. Bloating is listed as a normal side effect of this medication, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence and hypoglycemia. However, the good news is that side effects tend to be transient and go away, after your body gets used to the medication. You should see an improvement in about 2 more weeks, if not, please consult your doctor.

Metformin Er 750

Just got my Metformin ER 750 refilled. The pills look different... could be different manufacturer? One has 93 on one side and 7212 on the other. The other has 143 stamped on one side and nothing I can see on the other side. Help? ## Yes, they are both the same medication, a controlled release formulation of Metformin in a 750mg dosage. The one with the 93 is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and the 143 is manufactured by Sun Pharmaceuticals. It is common for the pharmacy to switch which generic they supply, depending on which company was offering the cheapest price, when they needed to restock their supply. It's how they keep their prices as low as possible for customers without insurance. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was prescribed with CLOPIDOGREL -PLAGERINE 7... ...

Metformin anti aging
Post a Reply
Hi all, I don't have diabetes, however I read that there's a lot of evidence that Metformin can slow the aging process as mentioned in this article among others: newsweek.com/diabetes-drug-could-be-anti-aging-miracle-404370?rx=us I was wondering if there is anyone here who takes Metformin for this reason? There's a 6 year study due to begin soon to look into the anti aging effects on elderly people, but I really don't want to wait 6 years for the results! I've read about a possible side effect of stomach upset while your body adjusts to it, but it seems like its safe and very cheap. So I feel why not start taking it. I don't think I'd be able to get it on prescription though, as I do not have diabetes and its currently only licensed to treat that particular c... ...
