High blood pressure Valsartan Valzaar

Uses
Valzaar (Valsartan) is used to lower blood pressure in those affected by hypertension. This is considered important, as high blood pressure puts the patient at risk of serious cardiovascular events, myocardial infarctions and strokes. Antihypertensive drugs such as this one are used to control blood pressure, and thereby lower the risk of serious health complications. In addition to medical treatment, other cardiovascular risk management measures are usually recommended, including the control of lipids and diabetes, antithrombotic treatment, limiting the intake of sodium, quitting smoking and exercise.

The active ingredient in this drug is known as an ARB (angiotensin receptor blocker) and it helps to reduce blood pressure by blocking the action of angiotensin II, a hormone which plays a key role in the regulation of blood pressure. It can make the blood vessels become narrow, which increases blood flow resistance. Treatment with this drug aims to reverse this by relaxing the walls of the blood vessel and causing it to become narrow, thereby resulting in decreased blood pressure.

Dosage and Administration
Valzaar (Valsartan) comes as tablets containing 160mg of the active ingredient. The doctor providing treatment will individualise the dosage for the patient, with factors such as the severity of the condition and medical history being taken into consideration. Generally, adults are told to start out with a dosage ranging from 80mg to 160mg taken once per day when the medicine is being taken as a monotherapy. However, patients who need a higher reduction in blood pressure may be told to take a higher dosage. If deemed necessary, the doctor may also adjust the dosage. Patients generally report that 2 to 4 weeks of treatment are needed before control of blood pressure is achieved.

Side effects
Treatment of hypertension with Valzaar (Valsartan) may cause:

  • Fatigue
  • Sneezing
  • Itchiness
  • Painful joints
  • Dizzy sensation

Notify the doctor who is treating you if any side effects occur. Some patients may need immediate medical treatment as a result of experiencing a serious side effect. Possible examples of this include symptoms of high potassium levels, decreased urination and sudden increases in body weight.

Precautions
This medicine acts directly on the renin-angiotensin system, and it may cause serious harm or possible death to a fetus that is under development. Therefore, this medicine should never be taken by pregnant women, and if a pregnancy occurs while the medicine is being taken, treatment should be ceased as soon as possible.

If you become dizzy after taking this drug, do not drive or operate machinery, as this could be dangerous.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Valzaar (Valsartan) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:
