Will taking diamicron and metformin together after breakfast cause any problems ?

I usually take diamicron 30mg just before breakfast and after breakfast I take metformin 850mg. Today I forgot to take diamicron before breakfast, so after breakfast I took both diamicron and metformin together. Will it cause any problem for me, I am little tensed. Appreciate a reply asap. Thank you

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Taking the two drugs together is not likely to cause any considerable drug interactions. It is always better to take your medicines late than to forget them completely. Do not worry. Next time be more careful in maintaining your drug timings.

Dear Susan, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Diamicron (gliclazide) is a sulphonylurea drug, which may or maynot be taken with food. Metformin is taken with food to avoid GI side effects. So this will not cause any problem to you. Now onwards, please be careful with your medications as suggested by Dr Rakhi. Good luck.
