I've been on Diovan for a long time Over 5 yrs. What are the side effects?
A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers -- for example: 120/80. The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure, and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. During clinical studies in people taking Diovan, systolic blood pressure decreased by 6 to 9 mmHg, on average, and diastolic blood pressure decreased by 3 to 6 mmHg on average. Certain factors, such as dose, affected how much the blood pressure dropped.
By lowering blood pressure, Diovan can decrease the risks that are seen with long-term high blood pressure.
For people with congestive heart failure, the effects of the medication on the heart and blood vessels have been shown to decrease hospitalizations and loss of life.
For the medication to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Diovan will not work if you stop taking it.
For more info, please it would be recommended to seek advice from a cardiologist/doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, take care, be well.
