HELLO,
Glimisave m1 CONTAINS GLIMEPIRIDE & METFORMIN HCL(ER), WHERE AS AMARYL CONTAINS ONLY GLIMIPIRIDE.

DEAR SIR/MADAM

GLIMISAVE M1 MG CONTAINS COMBINATION OF METFORMIN AND GLIMEPERIDE 1 MG

AMARYL 1 MG CONTAINS ONLY GLIMEPERIDE 1 MG

THERE IS LOT OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO, ASK FOR THE COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE.

THANKS.
