    I take one 500 tab with breakfast and one with lunch ...if I take one in the evening I get a high fasting BG ... I take a glass of red wine in the evening instead ...this was my Doctors recommendation :)

    Hi. If your tablets have a split line I'm fairly confident they are not Metformin SR. The box or leaflet should say SR if it's Glucophage or something similar like ER (Extended Release) if another brand.

    Hi thanks for all the comments and help. Have seen my doctor who was very sympathetic and he has put me on gliclazide now, unfortunately he says that it has a tendency to make people put on weight I am not looking forward to this as I have tried so hard to lose 2 stone.
    Have not started taking them yet as I have been ill and have not been eating much at all. Will keep you posted on how I get on.
