Yes, there is a difference. The ER stands for extended release, which means that medication is slowly released, over time and the new one is a regular release formulation, if it doesn't have anything listed like ER, XR, SR or etc.

If your body is used to having the medication released slowly, over time, then this might have results in some blood pressure spikes, as well as some minor withdrawal like symptoms.

Have you talked to your doctor, or your pharmacist?

This really only applies if the new one is listed exactly as you've said, if there is an ER, SR, or etc. designation, then there might be other problems involved.

Can you post back with the labeling details?
