I find that Gycomet 1mg is in the XR form. How much metformin does Glycomet 1gm contain? What is the benefit of switching over to Gycomet 1gm (Extended Release)? Would it help more than Metformin 850gm (Regular)? Moreover, no metformin tablet 1gm without being in SR/XR form is vailable in the market. Kindly advise ## Is there any difference between glycomet 1gm and glycomet Sr 1gm. Doctor has prescribed me glycomet Sr 1gm but it is not available in the market. Only glycomet 1gm is available.

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.

this pill is supposed to be acarbose 100mg but it doesn't match what I had before. The acarbose I took before had an M on one side & A over 100 on the other side. The acarbose this time is plain on one side with the number 54 up top & undernieth are the numbers 251. Both pills are round & white. ## Hello, Julie! How are you? This is a 100mg Arbacose tablet, since it is a generic, it's manufactured by several different companies and they'll all have different markings. It's most common side effect is diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?
