Add - a -latt

ad like bad
a like at (or since it is unstressed, it doesn't have to be a clear 'a' sound, it can be halfway towards 'uh' )
lat like bat

stress on first syllable and less stress on the second and third.

if you ever want a pronunciation of a medicine, go to youtube and put in the name - chances are there is a video of someone talking about it!
Just make sure they are a medical professional (although I guess patients probably get the names of their medicines right)
and that they are British (or long-term in Britain).


eg, for 'adalat blood pressure medicine' search:

This particular guy has a gentle Irish accent, but that will be the same as it is pronounced in Britain.
[Except Southern Irish accents don't do -th- Whistle ]
