About Met XL 3D 25/12.5 Tablet

Met XL 3D 25/12.5 Tablet belongs to the group of anti-hypertensive medicines used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Met XL 3D 25/12.5 Tablet helps lower blood pressure, thereby reducing the chances of heart problems such as heart attack and stroke.

Met XL 3D 25/12.5 Tablet is a combination of three drugs, namely: Chlorthalidone, Telmisartan, and Metoprolol succinate.
