DIOVAN 160 MG 28 TAB
DIOVAN 160MG TABLET belongs to a hypotensive drug called angiotensin receptor II antagonist used to treat hypertension (hypertension). In addition, DIOVAN 160MG TABLET is used to treat heart failure and prevent heart attacks. Blood puts pressure on the walls of blood vessels, causing high blood pressure. Heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump enough blood to the rest of the body. A heart attack or stroke is a blockage of blood flow to the heart muscle.
DIOVAN 160MG TABLET contains 'valsartan' that works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II receptors which tighten the blood vessels, causing a rise in the blood pressure. By blocking the effect of angiotensin II receptors, DIOVAN 160MG TABLET makes it easier for the heart to pump blood to all body parts by relaxing and widening the blood vessels. Thereby, helps in lowering the blood pressure to normal.
