Overview Information on Diovan
Pharmacist Tip
Talk to your doctor before taking cough or cold medicines, because they may increase your blood pressure.     
Diovan® is the brand name of the medicine valsartan. Diovan is prescribed by doctors to treat both high blood pressure and heart failure. In some cases, doctors prescribe Diovan to reduce the chances of dying after a heart attack.

Diovan is a type of medicine called an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Diovan treats high blood pressure and heart failure by relaxing blood vessels in your body, which helps your heart pump blood more easily and effectively. Diovan does this by blocking chemicals in the body that cause blood vessels to tighten.
