I assume you are reading the names from the pharmacy label.
They are similar except that the Glyb / metform is a combination of 2 medicines.
Glyb/metform 5/500 probably stands for Glyburide 5mg and Metformin 500mg.
This is a combination tablet combining glyburide and metformin. It is used to treat type 2 diabetes. The brand name of this medicine is called Glucovance.
Metformin HCl 500mg contains the single ingredient metformin 500mg.
