      How it works

      Valsartan blocks the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by selectively blocking the binding of angiotensin II to the AT1 receptor in many tissues, such as vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland. Its action is therefore independent of the pathways for angiotensin II synthesis.

      Diovan Tablets Precautions


      Patients with primary hyperaldosteronism should not be treated with valsartan as their renin-angiotensin system is not activated.

      Diovan Tablets Warnings

      Warning 1

      Concomitant use with potassium supplements, potassium-sparing diuretics, salt substitutes containing potassium, or other agents that may increase potassium levels (heparin, etc.) is not recommended. Monitoring of potassium should be undertaken as appropriate.

      Warning 2

      In patients with bilateral renal artery stenosis or stenosis to a solitary kidney, the safe use of valsartan has not been established. However, other agents that affect the renin-angiotensin system may increase blood urea and serum creatinine in patients with unilateral renal artery stenosis, therefore monitoring of renal function is recommended when patients are treated with valsartan.

      Warning 3

      In patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment without cholestasis, valsartan should be used with caution.
