What is Valsartan?

Valsartan belongs to the class of medicines called angiotensin II inhibitors. It is used to treat high blood pressure.

This medicine is also used to treat heart failure, lower the need for hospitalization that happens from heart failure, and even treat left ventricular dysfunction after a heart attack.

Valsartan works by blocking the action of a substance in the body that causes blood vessels to tighten. As a result, valsartan relaxes blood vessels which in turn lowers the blood pressure.
