User Comments:


Diovan HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / valsartan) for High Blood Pressure: “I switched to this after having a bad cough with linsinopril. My BP is stable on this medication, however I do have low or borderline low sodium and potassium on this medication. Don’t really have any other side effects. Just take in the morning, will make you pee!”

For High Blood Pressure: “It was horrible for me it made me very nauseous to where I couldn’t breathe as long as I was sitting down I was fine as soon as I stand up and start walking it would make me nauseous and out of breath after about 10 steps if I picked up anything heavy like a thing of laundry soap or a gallon of milk I felt like I was about to pass out so the very next day I didn’t take and felt great and so about a week late to be safe and make sure that is what was causing my problems I tried the meds again and like clock work the same side effects”

Diovan HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / valsartan) for High Blood Pressure: “Had taken Diovan 160mg and a separate water pill 12.5mg. Then my doctor switched me to Diovan HCT to save money. No good. Wound up with a severe rash. Switched back to the two pill system and now am fine.”

Diovan HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / valsartan) for High Blood Pressure: “I have tried several medications for my high blood pressure since 2004; Diovan HCT is the ONLY medication that helps me feel better. The majority of medications I tried gave me terrible headaches. I have virtually no side effects when using Diovan HCT; the only issue I have is that I cannot be out in the sun for extended periods of time.”

Diovan HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / valsartan) for High Blood Pressure: “I’ve been taking Diovan 165mg/12.5mg daily for the last 5 years, since I was 56 yrs old and 200 pounds without any side effects on my case. Maybe some impotence now that I read other comments, but at 61 yrs it is normal for men to no longer be that sexually strong.”
