I had a reaction to metformin HCL500 mg and was given another prescription for Meformin XR .750 mg However they are both almost identical the XR 750 is slightly larger but is still a large oval shaped pill. It does not have layers and is not a capsul with colored pellets that dissolve at different times. I do not want to have same but worse reaction I did to the HCL500. Have they given me the right medication. WHAT SHOULD THE METFORMIN 750 XR LOOK LIKE?
What is the difference between glucophage xr and metformin xr?

What kind of reaction did you have? Glucophage is the brand name. There is no difference in the active ingredient. Not all extended release are in capsules or layered, the coating is what makes it extended release at times. I'd talk to my pharmacist about it.
The link below has images of metformin XR (extended release) tablets. Hopefully you find the pill here ... but even if it's not on here it doesn't mean that the pill you have isn't metformin ER, as I'm pretty sure all images aren't available here.
Glucophage XR and metformin XR have the same medicine but are made by different companies.
If you had a reaction to metformin 500mg, why did they give you a high strength of metformin?
