Victoza - Is there any study information dealing with which metformin is generally better to take along with victosa? The Extended formula OR the non extended "standard" formula? For some reason my dr changed RX from extended back to the non extended... he never said a word to me, it just happened when pharmacy called him for refill so I am wondering WHY??
It depends on the preference, really. ER (extended release) is usually best because you only have to take a couple of pills at one time. The standard pill is smaller, of course, but you will have to take them before every meal or 4 times a day, whatever the directions would be. It would just be more often and require more remembering. As for the change at the pharmacy, that is weird for the doctor to change it without asking you or giving you a reason. I would ask him and let him know my preference. (I am on Bydureon and had been taking ER Metformin 1500mg and they never changed it).
