My father is a diabetic patient and he have high blood pressure as well. When he went for a check up at government clinic, he was given, Metformin 500mg(Glumet DC), Gliclazide 30mg(Remicron MR) for diabetes and Amlodipine Basilate 5mg(HOVASC) for reduce blood pressure. But when I brought him to one of the private clinic, the doctor insist to stop taking those medicines from government clinic as those are low cost medicines and highly ineffective. Then the doctor gave him medicines of Amlodipine 5mg(ZYNOR) and Rosuvastatin Calcium 10mg(ROSUCOR). Plus metformin medicine is out of stock at the clinic for the time being. Can you please recommend me the best metformin medicine so that I could order from online. Thank you.
