Treatment of Hypertension and Angina pectoris

Medicinal Benefits

Goodolol XL AM 50 Tablet is a combination antihypertensive medication containing Metoprolol succinate and Amlodipine.

Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker that decreases blood pressure by preventing the influx of calcium ions into cells and by enlarging and relaxing arteries. In addition, Goodolol XL AM 50 Tablet also reduces the oxygen demands of the heart, relaxing the heart and blood vessels and requiring the heart to do less work.
