I was taking tekturna, monopril and hydrochlorthyozide with no side effects - my doctor switched me to valturna hct and I immediately got a very severe gout attack my research indicates the valsartan in the valturna may be the cause - am I right?

Genitourinary side effects reported for the aliskiren component have included elevated uric acid (0.4%), gout (0.2%), and renal stones (0.2%). Genitourinary side effects reported for the valsartan component have included impotence.
