Which is better, metformin glipizide capsule or taking these two drugs alone?

Description Of Condition:

Originally, the medicine prescribed by the doctor was: take half glimepiride tablet 2mg / once a day, plus metformin hydrochloride tablet 0.25g, take two tablets / three times a day. When I went to renew the prescription, I said that one of them was out of stock, so I prescribed metformin glipizide capsule (metformin hydrochloride 250mg, glipizide 2.5mg) to take one capsule / twice a day. I would like to ask, is it better to take these two drugs alone, or to take this synthetic drug? I used to eat half of glipizide, but now I can't cut it in half and increase the amount. However, the amount of metformin hydrochloride decreased from three times a day to two times. If it's better to take the two alone, I'll go out and buy them myself. Since the hospital doesn't have them.
