Brief Answer:
Apo refers to the manufacturer of the medication

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

The apo that you are seeing on the tablet only refers to the company that manufacturers the drug - APOTEX INC.

They are a drug company that are the leading manufacturers of generic medications.

Apo is seen before all of the drugs that they make. Unfortunately just the word apo would not provide any information on the medication itself.

The box or package that the medication is given in from the pharmacist should have the name of the drug.

If you wish you can attach a picture of the box, package or insert that comes with the medication so I can take a look and identify it for you.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any additional questions
