No both are different to one another.
Metformin is a drug that is prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes. It works by decreasing the amount of sugar made by the liver and decreasing the amount of sugar absorbed into the body. As a result, metformin can help the body respond better to its own insulin and decrease blood sugar levels. As with any medication, there are potential side effects, such as diarrhea, nausea, and headaches. The medication is available in several forms, including a tablet form, two long-acting forms, and a liquid version.
Glipizide is used to lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. It works by helping the pancreas make more insulin. The medication comes in tablet form, and is typically taken once or twice a day. Your dosage will depend on how well your diabetes is controlled and other medical conditions you may have, among other things. Potential side effects of glipizide include dizziness, diarrhea, and nervousness.
Take care, best wishes!
