Diovan HCT Drug Interactions

Potassium Supplements or Salt Substitutes With Potassium
The valsartan component of Diovan HCT has a tendency to increase potassium levels in the blood. With Diovan HCT, however, this effect is usually nicely counteracted by the tendency of the other component (hydrochlorothiazide) to lower potassium levels.
 
Nonetheless, it is possible that combining Diovan HCT with potassium supplements or potassium salt substitutes could lead to dangerously high potassium levels in the blood. If you take such products together, your healthcare provider should closely monitor your blood potassium levels.
