About Angopin E AT 5mg/50mg Tablet

Angopin E AT 5mg/50mg Tablet is an anti-hypertensive medication that is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the blood pressure against the artery walls becomes too high. This can lead to damaged blood vessels, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and other problems.
