Amlovas 5 MG Description

The Amlovas-5 tablet is an anti-hypertensive medicine that is used to treat high blood pressure and chest pain (angina). It contains Amlodipine as its main ingredient. This medicine lowers the raised

blood pressure and thus reduces the pressure or workload on the heart, which further reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. Inform your doctor if you recently had a heart attack or are suffering from heart failure. Take as suggested by the doctor and in doses and duration as prescribed based on the blood pressure range and severity of the condition. You can take this medicine with or without food. It would be best if you take Amlovas 5 at the same time every day to gain optimal benefits. Uncontrolled blood pressure can lead to serious health consequences on various organs such as the heart, kidney, brain, eye, etc. Thus, never stop taking the medicine even if you start feeling better, without consulting your doctor.
