I've been taking Diovan for over 5 years. For the last year and a half I've been having a cough with postnasal drip and chest congestion. Every morning I cough up some mucous. I've check out all other possible sources with all kinds of lung tests and no cause can be identified. So I thought that maybe the Diovan might be causing this.

I have also been on Diovan for 2 years now. I don't have a cough but I do have some mucus buildup in the back of my throat. The onset of this was sudden. It started over this past winter. I thought that it would disappear before the summer but it has not. I have been off the med for a week now and it seems to help. Diovan has a higher incident of cough than other ARBs. I would recommend trying others, such as Benicar or Atacand.
