In brief: Formulation differ
Metformin is formulated differently than Glumetza which uses a special advanced polymer technology that delivers the medicine slowly and steadily over several hours.
This delay in the release of the medicine may result in fewer stomach-related side effects, such as nausea, in the 1st week of taking the medication. (difference is binders).
