Diovan Oral

Diovan® (valsartan) is a medication used for the treatment of various heart and blood vessel conditions. Specifically, it can help treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure, as well as improve survival rates in people who have had a heart attack.
 
Diovan belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin II receptor blockers. Diovan decreases the effectiveness of a chemical known as angiotensin II, which normally causes blood vessels to narrow (constrict). By blocking its effects, Diovan causes blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure and improve the efficiency of the heart.
 
This prescription medication comes in the form of tablets and is typically taken once or twice a day. Oral Diovan tablets are available in the following strengths:
 
  • Diovan 40 mg
  • Diovan 80 mg
  • Diovan 160 mg
  • Diovan 320 mg.
     
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Diovan. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Common side effects of Diovan may include dizziness, fatigue, and diarrhea.
