What are Diovan’s uses?
Diovan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), chronic heart failure, and to aid patients with post-heart attack recovery. This medication lowers blood pressure and promotes improved circulation in those who are suffering from some conditions affecting their cardiovascular system.
This medication is prescribed to significantly reduce the risk of death after a heart failure or heart attack.
What is Diovan?
Diovan generic drug is known as Valsartan. Valsartan is whatâ€™s known as an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). Angiotensin is a protein hormone that the body provides to help manage perfusion in the body (the processes of blood flowing through the circulatory system).
When receptors are acted on by angiotensin, they respond by tightening blood vessels, which increases blood pressure, effectively making it more difficult for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. The stress on the heart when blood pressure becomes too high can lead to fatal consequences such as heart failure and heart diseases.
This medication acts on the AT1 receptors that use angiotensin. By blocking these receptors, blood vessels will start to relax, de-pressurizing the circulatory system and allowing blood to flow easier.
What is the correct Diovan dosage?
For hypertension: The dose to start is one Diovan 80 mg tablet per day. The dose should be gradually increased but not exceeding the maximum dose of 320 mg per day.
For post heart-attack health: The dose, to begin with, is 20 mg twice a day. The dose may be increased gradually to 160 mg a day.
For Chronic heart failure: Starting dose is 40 mg twice a day. The dose should be gradually increased without exceeding the maximum dose of 160 mg twice a day.
