Valsartan

Valsartan is a prescription medication used alone or in combination with other medication to:

  • Reduce high blood pressure in adults and children aged 6 to 18 years of age.
  • Treat adults with a poorly functioning heart as a result of a recent heart attack.
  • Treat heart failure in adults when ACE inhibitor medications do not work or in addition to ACE inhibitor if beta-blockers are not suitable.

Valsartan works by blocking angiotensin II receptors in the body. Angiotensin II is involve in fluid balance and regulating the blood pressure in the body It causes the blood vessels to become narrow and the kidney to retain salt and water.

Blocking these receptors widen the peripheral blood vessels allowing the blood to flow freely into the heart. It also increases the amount of fluid removal from the blood by the kidney. This lessens the resistance and pressure in the blood vessels so the heart won’t have to pump blood hard around the body.

Why Buy Valsartan?

Valsartan is FDA-approved for medical use since 1996. It is prescribed for people with heart failure and those who have had a heart attack. Valsartan reduces the work load of the heart and has been shown to improve survival in patients who have had a heart attack.
