    Hi, just wanted to know if anyone else has tried both? I was on duramine for 5 months and when I went to get my repeat the pharmacist pressured me into getting the generic Metermine. On day 3 of taking it I was up all night, couldn't sleep. Then 2 days later I had a racing heart all day. I landed up in hospital. I was told to stop taking Metermine, 2 days later all good again. When I saw my own GP she told me that there is a difference between the two tablets, usually an inactive ingredient, and she thinks that it reacted adversely with the active ingredient with me.

    Anyway just wondering if anyone else had the same reaction.
