Answered questions

Is Diovan (valsartan) a substitute for Altace?
Asked by Stefan Sambucetti 4 months ago.

Diovan (valsartan) belongs to a family of medications known as angiotensin II receptor blockers. These medicines are used to lower mild to moderate hypertension (high blood pressure). They work by relaxing blood vessels. Angiotensin II is a chemical that the body releases to cause the constriction of blood vessels. Valsartan blocks the action of angiotensin II, resulting in the relaxation of the blood vessels. This relaxation causes the blood pressure to drop. The full effects of valsartan are usually seen within about four weeks. Valsartan may be used alone or in combination with a diuretic (water pill). Altace is indicated in patients 55 years or older at high risk of developing a major cardiovascular event because of a history of coronary artery disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, or diabetes that is accompanied by at least one other cardiovascular risk factor (hypertension, elevated total cholesterol levels, low HDL levels, cigarette smoking, or documented microalbuminuria), to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes. Altace can be used in addition to other needed treatment (such as antihypertensive, antiplatelet or lipid-lowering therapy). Diovan (valsartan) is not a substitute for Altace.You should contact your doctor for more information. Answered by Jana Felleman 4 months ago.


Is Valsartan (generic form of Diovan) available in U.S.? If so, which pharmacy can i get it from? Thanks!?
Asked by Mechelle Claughton 4 months ago.

Diovan (valsartan) is a prescription medication in the U.S. You would have to have a prescription for the medication from a physician, and after that, it is available at any U.S. pharmacy. Again, it isnt available without a prescription though, and you'd have to visit a doctor first. RN Answered by Faustina Widder 4 months ago.

What's the difference between olmesartan and valsartan?
Asked by Vernia Stmartin 4 months ago.

Olmesartan is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Olmesartan is in a class of medications called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It works by blocking the action of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly. Valsartan is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to treat heart failure in people who cannot take angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Valsartan is in a class of medications called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It works by blocking the action of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly. Answered by Anastacia Anstine 4 months ago.

The real difference between ACEI and ARB is the method of reducing blood pressure. Both medications work with the body's renin-angiotensin system. ACEI (Valsartan) works by inhibiting the Angiotensin-converting enzyme from converting Angiotensin I (the blood pressure lowering component), to Angiotensin II (a powerful vasoconstrictor <-- it contracts the blood vessels, which causes the high blood pressure by choking the blood flow). ARB (Olmesartan) bypasses the conversion route by preventing the arterial Angiotension Receptor from accepting Angiotensin II. Discovery of ACEI was accidental, which effects were discovered in snake anti-venom research. ARB was purposely designed to fight vasoconstriction, and has fewer side-effects (so drug compliance is higher). ARB is newer, and now being prescribed as the drug of choice in fighting high blood pressure (HBP) in the USA. It's use in protecting the kidneys from Chronic Renal Failure (CRF), and it's consequence End-Stage Renal Failure (ESRD), is very important for heart health -- kidneys and the heart are so interlinked that when treating a heart condition, the renal function is also watched carefully. But with all ACEI and ARB medications if the patient has low-Renin, another Hypertension medication will have to be added with ACEI and ARB to work effectively (ACEI and ARB work poorly for those patients). Which is why it's important to get a tested for Renin levels for effective Hypertension control. Answered by Carmelo Carnes 4 months ago.

What specific birth defects can be caused by Valsartan (Diovan)?
The package insert says it can cause birth defects but doesn't say what kind of defects. Does it cause heart problems? Does it cause something less severe? What medication can replace it if a wonam wants to have a child? Asked by Carolee Brodtmann 4 months ago.

"There have been cases of reported oligohydramnios, fetal growth retardation, pulmonary hypoplasia, limb contractures, and calvarial hypoplasia in various combinations in association with maternal losartan, candesartan, valsartan, or telmisartan (all ARBs) treatment during the second or third trimester of pregnancy. Stillbirth or neonatal death is frequent in these reports, and surviving infants may exhibit renal damage. These effects are probably related to extreme sensitivity of the fetus to the hypotensive action of these drugs." There are other anti-hypertensive agents that are commonly used during pregnancy. Hydralazine is a common one. I hope this helps. Good luck. Answered by Christy Lindman 4 months ago.


Can valsartan diovan & stamilo be taken together?
I need someone who is well-versed in medications to answer this question. Thanks in advance. Asked by Desiree Tepfer 4 months ago.

You should not be combining medications by yourself. Diovan is the trade name of Valsartan. It should be Stamlo and not stamilo. Stamlo is amlodipine. Both are medications for high blood pressure, though there are some other uses as well. Answered by Valrie Quincey 4 months ago.

call your doctor or pharmisist, dont take advice from here on something that could effect you health Answered by Saundra Roseland 4 months ago.

Which pain medicines should I avoid when taking Diovan (valsartan)? (160 mg) This is a antihypertensive, a angiotensin II receptor blocker. I suffer from headaches daily.. and I don't know what OTC painkiller is safe for me to take while on Diovan. Can I take Advil (ibuprofen)? I usually take 2 tablets (400 mg) almost once a week. Can I take Tylenol (acetaminophen)? I don't take Tylenol at all. Only if it's available. Can I take Excedrin? (acetaminophen, aspirin, caffeine)? Taken when I get extreme migraines. Please help I'm suffering a really bad headache and I want relief! Answered by Wilfredo Millage 4 months ago.

Avoid stimulants (caffeine, sudafed, etc) and NSAIDS (aspirin, ibuprofen, aleve) which can cause water retention in some people. Tylenol is fine to use. Answered by Michal Amo 4 months ago.

The safest would still be Tylenol (acetaminophen). If there is a 650mg tab available you may take one tablet of this 3-4 times daily. Should work pretty well for relief of headaches. Make sure you are well hydrated as well with plenty of fluids (retail preparations containing oral re hydration salts would be good). Answered by Margareta Prusinski 4 months ago.

NSAID's like aspirin and ibuprofen can sometimes cause fluid retention and loss of blood pressure control, whereas acetaminophen has no such worries. It's unlikely you're going to have major problems with any of them, but if you're going to worry, get the Tylenol. Answered by Dong Yammine 4 months ago.
