Benefits of Oltas M Tablet

In Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Oltas M Tablet is a combination medicine that contains two active ingredients, Amlodipine and Metoprolol Succinate.

You do not usually feel any direct benefit from taking this medicine, but it works in the long term to keep you well.
