Amisulpride Tablets 50, 100, 200, 300, 400 mg

Amisulpride Tablets IP 100 mg is a type of medicine that belongs to the group of atypical antipsychotics. They are prescribed for the treatment of various mentally ill disorders, primarily schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Each tablet consists of 100 mg of the active ingredient, amisulpride.
