AMLOPRES-VL 5MG/160MG TABLET


Overview

Introduction

AMLOPRES-VL 5MG/160MG TABLET is a combination of two medicines used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) when single medication is not effective. It helps to lower high blood pressure and thus reduces the chance of future heart attack and stroke. This medicine should be used along with a proper diet, salt restriction, and regular exercise for best results. It should be taken regularly with or without food at a fixed time every day. This medicine should not be stopped abruptly as may result in sudden increase of blood pressure. You may experience mild dizziness initially while taking this medicine, but this improves with time. Swelling of the ankle may occur in some patients as a side effect.
