What is Valsartan (Generic Diovan) and what are its uses ?

Valsartan (Generic Diovan) helps lower blood pressure to normal levels.

Valsartan (Generic Diovan) controls high blood pressure, but it is not a cure. High blood pressure can damage your kidneys, and may lead to a stroke or heart failure. Valsartan (Generic Diovan) helps prevent these things from happening.

How does Valsartan (Generic Diovan) Works (Mechanism) ?

Valsartan (Generic Diovan) contains the active ingredient valsartan, which is a type of medicine called an angiotensin II antagonist. Valsartan (Generic Diovan) works by preventing the action of a hormone in the body called angiotensin II.

Angiotensin II is involved in regulating blood pressure and fluid balance. Valsartan (Generic Diovan) acts on special angiotensin receptors in the body, with two main results. Firstly, Valsartan (Generic Diovan) causes the peripheral blood vessels to narrow, and secondly, it stimulates the production of another hormone called aldosterone. Aldosterone causes salt and water to be retained by the kidneys, which increases the volume of fluid in the blood vessels.

Valsartan (Generic Diovan) blocks the receptors that angiotensin II acts on, and so prevents its actions. The main result of this is that the peripheral blood vessels are allowed to widen, which means that there is more space and less resistance in these blood vessels. This is the main mechanism by which the pressure in the blood vessels is lowered.

The combined overall effect of these changes is to lower the blood pressure, hence Valsartan (Generic Diovan) is used to treat high blood pressure.
