As you said correctly, Zoryl M 3 has additional medicine named Metformin in it and the Plain Zoryl 3 mg does not make an alternative to it but it makes half the medication of your doctor prescribed combination. If you take plain Zoryl 3 mg, certainly sugars will not be as well controlled as they get controlles with Zoryl M 3 and you will face higher readings.
But you seem to have some difficulty in getting the full combination dose for next two days. Then you can try buying plain Metformin SR 500 mg to be taken along with this plain Zoryl 3 mg as it will be precisely equal to your doctor prescribed Zoryl M3. You can see any local GP for the prescription, as you are aware of your doses yourself.
I hope you got the answer.
Take care,
Good luck.
