INTRODUCTION

VALENT 160MG contains Valsartan which belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin II receptor blocker. It is indicated for the treatment of hypertension and a recent heart attack (myocardial infarction) in both adults and in children aged above 6 years. It can also be used to provide symptomatic relief from heart failure. Valsartan antagonizes the hypertensive effects of angiotensin II at angiotensin receptor 1 (AT1) binding sites and reduces the risk of cardiovascular outcomes. Along with the treatment, your doctor might recommend you make certain lifestyle changes such as quitting alcohol and smoking, improve your sleep at night, eating a healthy diet and manage weight.

Always take this medicine as directed by your physician. It can be taken with or without food. Swallow the medicine as a whole with a glass of water. The main side effect of taking this medicine is dizziness. Avoid travelling, driving or operate any machine while taking this medicine. Your doctor might monitor your kidney function, blood pressure, and the electrolytes (e.g. potassium) in your blood at regular intervals. Do not take this medicine if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or diabetic. Consult your doctor for advice.

USES OF VALENT 160MG

  • Treats high blood pressure and a recent heart attack (myocardial infarction) in both adults and in children aged above 6 years
  • Provides symptomatic relief from heart failure

HOW VALENT 160MG WORKS

VALENT 160MG blocks the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by selectively blocking the binding of angiotensin II to the AT1 receptor in many tissues, such as vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland. This relaxes the blood vessel and lowers the blood pressure which can increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
