Diovan contains valsarten and belongs to a class of blood pressure medications called angiotensin II receptor antagonists.
Benicar HCT contains two active ingredients - Olmesartan an angiotensin II receptor antagonist and Hydrochlorothiazide which is a thiazide diuretic.
The addition of the hydrochlorothiazide helps prevent the body from absorbing too much salt which can cause fluid retention.
