Diovan and its Uses

Generic Diovan contains the active ingredient valsartan, which is a type of medicine called an angiotensin II antagonist.

Generic Diovan (Valsartan) is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Generic Diovan is also used to treat heart failure in people who cannot take angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.

Generic Diovan works by blocking the action of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly.

Generic Diovan was approved by the FDA in December of 1996.

Diovan Mechanism Diovan Working

Angiotensin II is involved in regulating blood pressure and fluid balance. It acts on special angiotensin receptors in the body, with two main results. Firstly, it 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.

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.

Blocking the actions of angiotensin II also reduces the action of aldosterone on the kidneys. The result of this is an increase in the amount of fluid removed from the blood by the kidneys. This decreases the amount of fluid in the blood vessels, which also lessens the resistance and pressure in the blood vessels.

The combined overall effect of these changes is to lower the blood pressure, hence Generic Diovan (valsartan) is used to treat high blood pressure. The reduced pressure within the blood vessels also means that the heart doesn't have to work as hard to pump the blood around the body. For this reason, Generic Diovan may be prescribed to people who have had a heart attack.

Sometimes a heart attackcan damage a chamber of the heart known as the left ventricle. This damage means that the heart doesn't pump as effectively as it should. Generic Diovan reduces the workload of the heart and has been shown to improve survival in people who have this problem following a heart attack.
