What is Co-Diovan (Valsartan)?

Co-Diovan tablets (Valsartan) is a medicine to reduce blood pressure. This medication reduces the tension in the muscles around the arterial walls, widening the blood vessels. Blood vessels are under less stress, which means that blood pressure drops.

How does it work?

This High Blood pressure medicine belongs to a class of medications known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists, which help control high blood pressure. Angiotensin II is a substance in the body that causes blood vessels to narrow, causing an increase in blood pressure. Valsartan works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II. As a consequence, blood vessels relax and blood pressure drops.

What are the benefits of taking it?

The multiple benefits these blood pressure tablets offer include treatments for the following disorders.

  • Hypertension usually doesn't cause specific problems. However, hypertension is dangerous. If the blood flows too hard through the veins, it can damage the blood vessels. This increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Valsartan reduces blood pressure so that these risks are decreased.
  • Heart failure. If the heart doesn't work well, it doesn't pump blood properly. This heart failure can cause various ailments, such as tightness, fatigue, and puddling of the lungs. Valsartan improves the condition of the heart and lowers blood pressure. As a result, the heart can improve its function.
  • Myocardial infarction. Due to a heart attack, part of the heart muscle may die. This will impair the functioning of the heart. Valsartan improves the heart's pumping ability and helps prevent further heart problems after a heart attack.

How do I use it?

Always use this medicine according to a doctor's instructions or according to the instructions in the package leaflet. The general guidelines for taking Valsartan tablets are as follows:

  • Take the tablet with a little water.
  • Choose a fixed time to take this medicine. This way, it will be more difficult for you to forget to take a dose.
  • If you suffer from side effects such as dizziness, take the tablet before bed.
  • If you feel dizzy from this medicine, do not drive or operate heavy machines until the symptoms are gone.
  • Have you forgotten to take Valsartan? You can take the tablet later, but if it is almost time for the next dose, it is better to skip the forgotten tablet.

Its dosage

Valsartan is available in 40mg, 80mg, 160mg and 320mg tablets. A doctor will tell you which dosage is best for you. The general guidelines for the dosage of Valsartan are as follows:

  • Adults with hypertension; 1 80 mg tablet once a day. After a few weeks, a doctor can increase this dose to 160 mg once a day if necessary. The maximum dose is 360 mg once a day.
  • Children from 6 to 18 years old with hypertension: 40 mg once a day (for a bodyweight less than 35 kg) or 80 mg once a day (for a bodyweight greater than 35 kg).
  • Adults with heart failure: 1 40 mg tablet twice a day. A doctor may gradually increase this starting dose to a maximum of 160 mg twice a day.
  • Adults after a recent heart attack: 20 mg twice a day (half 40 mg tablet). A doctor may gradually increase this starting dose to a maximum of 160 mg twice a day.
