  • What is Valsartan/HCTZ?
    Valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) (generic Diovan) is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure. Like many blood pressure medications, valsartan/HCTZ works best when taken alongside lifestyle changes - like diet, exercise, and weight loss - that can naturally help combat high blood pressure.

    Looking for a safe, effective way to keep your blood pressure under control? Talk to your doctor about whether valsartan may be right for you.

  • What are the most common side effects of valsartan/HCTZ?
    While adverse reactions to valsartan/HCTZ are uncommon, some patients who take the drug may experience mild side effects, including dizziness, lightheadedness, loss of body water and electrolytes, dehydration, mineral loss, extreme thirst, muscle cramps or weakness, very dry mouth, changes to your heartbeat, or confusion.

    Rare, more serious adverse events have also been known to occur.

Frequently asked questions about Valsartan/HCTZ

What is Valsartan/HCTZ?

Valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure. This medication is a combination of two active ingredients, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide. Valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (which relaxes blood vessels) and hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic (which helps the body to get rid of excess salt and water).

High blood pressure is a common condition that can lead to serious health problems. When left untreated, it can cause damage to the brain, heart, kidneys, blood vessels and more. Damage to these organs can place you at greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

What is Valsartan/HCTZ used to treat?

This medication is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) in adults, particularly in patients likely to need multiple drugs to achieve their blood pressure goals. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

How does Valsartan/HCTZ work?

Valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker. Angiotensin II is a substance in the body that causes blood vessels to narrow. Valsartan blocks the effects of angiotensin II, relaxing and widening your blood vessels. This helps lower your blood pressure and makes it easier for your heart to pump blood and oxygen to the various parts of the body. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic. It reduces the amount of fluid in the body, which also helps lower blood pressure.

What are the most common side effects of Valsartan/HCTZ?

While adverse reactions to Valsartan/HCTZ are uncommon, some patients who take the drug may experience mild side effects. The most common adverse effects of Valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide are dizziness or lightheadedness. These are normally mild and usually go away as your body adjusts to the medication. Let your doctor know you experience any severe side effects or if these don’t go away. This medication can cause a loss of too much body water and electrolytes. Some symptoms of dehydration or mineral loss include extreme thirst, muscle cramps or weakness, very dry mouth, changes to your heartbeat, or confusion. Talk to your doctor right away if you experience any of these symptoms.

A very serious reaction is rare but can occur. Get immediate medical attention if you experience fainting, a decrease in vision, eye pain, symptoms of high potassium levels (muscle weakness or irregular heartbeat), signs of kidney problems or an allergic reaction (such as rash, hives, itching, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing).

Talk to your doctor about your medical history - particularly if you have or have had kidney or liver disease, lupus, gout, or skin cancer. Inform your doctor of all known allergies and of all medications and supplements that you take. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

This is not a complete list of side effects or precautions. For more information please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage for valsartan & hydrochlorothiazide.

How long does it take for Valsartan/HCTZ to work?

The diuretic effects from the hydrochlorothiazide should begin in about 2 hours, peak in 4 hours, and will last for 6 to 12 hours. Valsartan starts to work towards reducing high blood pressure within 4 to 6 hours. You may need to take these medicines consistently for 2 to 4 weeks for full effect.

You should continue taking Valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide even if you feel well. High blood pressure often does not have any symptoms and you may not notice a difference in how you feel even if the medicine is achieving the desired effect. Do not stop taking your medicine without consulting your doctor.

What is the typical starting dose of Valsartan/HCTZ?

The usual starting dose is valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide tablets 160/12.5 mg once daily. The doctor may decide to increase or adjust your dosage after 1 to 2 weeks of therapy depending on how you are responding to the treatment.

Dosages may vary among different patients. Many things can affect the dosage prescribed, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and any other medications that you’re taking. Take Valsartan and HCTZ only as prescribed by your doctor.
