Diovan Pills

Diovan® (valsartan) is a prescription medication used to treat various conditions that affect the heart or blood vessels, such as high blood pressure or congestive heart failure. It can also help improve survival rates in people who have had a heart attack. The drug comes in the form of pills (tablets) and is available in the following strengths:
  • Diovan 40 mg
  • Diovan 80 mg
  • Diovan 160 mg
  • Diovan 320 mg.
As part of 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. Diovan also increases the efficiency of the heart.
Even though most people tolerate the pills well, Diovan is not suitable for everyone. Before using this medication, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins, supplements, and non-prescription medications).
