About Neptaz 100 mg Tablet 14's

Neptaz 100 mg Tablet 14's belongs to a class of cardiovascular agents that is used in the treatment of heart failure. It helps to reduce the risk of death and hospitalization in adults with chronic heart failure. Also, it can be used in children 1 to less than 18 years old to treat heart failure.

Together, Neptaz 100 mg Tablet 14's helps in the treatment of heart failure.
