Big Dvr 2.5 mg Tablet


Overview

Introduction of Big Dvr Tablet

Big Dvr 2.5 mg Tablet is a medicine used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to prevent angina (heart-related chest pain). It is known as a calcium channel blocker and helps to lower blood pressure and reduce the workload of the heart. This helps prevent heart attacks and strokes.
