Diovan Dangers

Although most people tolerate Diovan® (valsartan) well, it is not free of dangerous risks. Because this medication is not suitable for everyone, make sure you talk to your healthcare provider about possible dangers with Diovan that may apply to you.
 
For instance, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including non-prescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements) before starting treatment with Diovan. Dangers of this medication include potential side effects. Some of the most common Diovan side effects include:
 
  • Dizziness
  • An increase in blood potassium levels
  • Infection with a virus, such as the common cold or flu
  • Coughing
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal (stomach) pain.
     
Other Diovan warnings apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies (including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives). Also, you may not be able to take Diovan if you have certain medical conditions, such as kidney disease, diabetes, or gallbladder problems.
