Is Ace revelol 50/5 tablets ER and Ace revelol50/5 tablets are same? What is the relevance of ER? Dr. has prescribed Ace revelol 50/5 tablets & not the one with ER. Are both medicine same? Can tablet with ER be taken in place of plain one i.e.without ER.

Er is extended release technology. Yes it can be taken er drugs get disseminated in the body slowly over longer period compared to normal version. This helps keep the effect of the drug longer.
