Diovan Overview

Valsartan (trade name Diovan) is mainly used for treatment of high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and to increase the chances of living longer after a heart attack.

prescribed in the philippines ## This is a form of a blood pressure medication made in the US called Diovan. It is used to lower high blood pressure. Side effects include dizziness, lightheadness, headache, among others. ## Actually, the name brand in the U.S. for Losartan is Cozaar. Learn more Cozaar details here. It's an ARB that's used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. It and Diovan are in the same drug class, but Diovan actually contains the active ingredient Valsartan. Learn more Diovan details here. As to the Calvit, that's a supplement that contains Calcium Carbonate and Cholecalciferol and the Sangobion is a multivitamin nutritional supplement. Is there anything I can help with? Are there any comments or questions? ## Hi, Im 6 mos preg...

Valsartan 80 mg and gaining weight in the belly
1 Reply RSS
I just increased my valsartan from 48 mg to 80 mg and suddenly my stomach is much larger. Is anyone else experiencing this kind of weight gain? ## Bloating and fluid retention can be side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and hypotension. How much have you gained? Are you on any other medications? How much larger is it?

Diovan 160 Mg Vs Losartan 100 25
15 Replies RSS
Are the ingredients in Diovan 160 mg and Losartan 100-25 mg comparable if I run out of one can I switch to other? ## Hi Elaine, As far as comparing these drugs, I think it's not wise to assume that they have similar properties, since everyone can react differently to one or the other, despite having an equivalent dosage. If you're used to taking one or the other and have your doctors permission, I'd say it's fine to switch off between the two. However, at the same time I wouldn't necessarily anticipate having the same relief or results from two entirely different medications. On a side note: Eating whole foods that have little to no sodium and which are high in potassium and magnesium are solid dietary options for lowering blood pressure. These foods primarily includ...

Diovan And Triamterene/hctz
3 Replies RSS
Is it safe to take Diovan and Triamterene/hctz together? I just failed a flight physical partly because the ME said these two drugs shouldn't be taken together!! I've been taking them together for about two years as prescribed by my PCP. Really want to get completely off meds but presume I'll need to go slowly. Any advise? Thanks ## It isn't that they shouldn't be taken together, but they can cause some problems, so your doctor must carefully consider the dosage and should be monitoring you regularly. Now, this information is only relevant to the medicine in general. When it comes to specific criteria, such as that related to a flight physical, it may be a prohibited combination, due to the problems that can be caused by using them together. The first is due the risk...

Splitting in half Concor 5mg
2 Replies RSS
Can Concor 5 mg be split? Is it safe to do so? I've heard that with some medication it's not good to split them. ## Hello, Spiro! How are you? Yes, this medication can be split, if your doctor approves, it is not time released. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, thanks for your reply! The other question I had was in connection with Tareg (Diovan). Any withdrawal effects if it was stopped. I realize ones BP would rise again, just asking as to the rest.

Im on co-diovan 160 and bilocor 5mg twice a day + trepelene 25mg. My docter prescribed demetrin 10mg twice a day. I want to know if it is safe to use all these medications together. ## I haven't found any interaction information on Demetrin (Prazepam), but as far as the others go, there are potentially unsafe interactions found between all of your medications. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: The following applies to: Trepiline (amitriptyline) and Co-diovan (valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide)… "Hydrochlorothiazide and amitriptyline may have additive effects in lowering your blood pressure. You may experience headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, and/or changes in pulse or heart rate. These side effects are most likely to be seen ...

Inconsistent High Blood Pressure Medication
Post a Reply
I used to have medical aid and was prescribed Co-Diovan 80 plus Twynsta 40mg. But then I got retrenched and had to receive other medication since the State does not keep these kind of medication. The State gives medication free of charge. I was prescribed a list of medication back since none were effective - my BP remained high. Most recently I got Atenolol 50mg plus Perindopril 4 plus Adco-Retic 2.5mg for water retention. My blood pressure remained non-consistent so I decided to rather go back to the Co-Diovan/Twynsta combination again. I must say that these medications are really expensive but since it is my health, I purchased them out of my own pocket. I have been using the Co-Diovan combination for the past 3 days but have noticed that my blood pressure ranges between 167/93 to 149...

Valsrat prescription
Post a Reply
Dear reader, My cardiologist gave me Diovan 60. That has been around now for some time. These pills are packaged in 14 pills per strip. Now this pill changed to Valstartan/Hydrochlorothiazide 125/75 mg, and these pills are packaged in strips of 10 pills. Do you know where I can still get these 14 day strips? I have a prescription from my cardiologist available. Thanks for your reply. Henno R., Netherlands {edited for privacy}
