Alternate drug to Metaday for diabetes

User Profile
Hello.. I am having diabetes from last 7 years. Doctor prescribed me to use Metaday 500 tablet once in a day before breakfast. I was using the same dosage since 7 years and I have the blood sugar levels almost under control. Now the issue is I could not get the same Metaday 500 tablets due to shortage in Pune sometimes. Please let me know what is the alternative drug that I can use in place of Metaday 500. Thanks in advance.

Metaday 500 mg tablet contains Metformin 500 mg as generic drug. You can ask for another brand of Metformin 500 mg if Metaday brand is not available.

Hope it helped!
