Metformin ER 500mg 90 day supply has IP 178 on back from AFB in Little Rock,AR. MetF ER Glucophage 500 mg has 142 on the back of the pill from the same place at a different date. Does the number on the back change?

MJ is correct, when a medication is available as a generic, it might be manufactured by various companies, this is done to try to keep prices down by creating market competition. Yes, they both contain 500mgs of Metformin in a time released formulation.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, stomach pain, flatulence, diarrhea, and low blood sugar.

Are there any questions?
