Diovan – Valsartan uses, dose and side effects

Diovan contains the active substance valsartan and belongs to a class of medicines called angiotensin II receptor blockers and is used to lower high blood pressure. Angiotensin II is a substance found in the body that constricts blood vessels, which increases blood pressure. Diovan works by inhibiting the effects of angiotensin II. This causes the blood vessels to dilate and the blood pressure to drop.
