If you are 60 years or older and your blood pressure is consistently 150/90 mm Hg or higher, you have high blood pressure. If you are between the ages of 30 and 59 and your diastolic number (the bottom number) is greater than 90 mm Hg, you have high blood pressure. So itís important to talk to your doctor or health care professional and ask if Diovan or Diovan HCT blood pressure medicines may help you reach a healthier blood pressure level.
Diovan is a prescription blood pressure medicine called an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It relaxes and widens your blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily. This helps reduce your blood pressure and the stress on your heart.
Diovan and Diovan HCT have been prescribed
for approximately 15 million patients in the United States.
Diovan starts working the first day you take it.
Just one pill a day helps lower blood pressure for a full 24 hours.
Diovan is available in three convenient dosages for high blood pressure. Talk to your doctor about Diovan and ask if it's right for you.
Diovan HCT may be right for you.
Diovan HCT is a combination of Diovan and a diuretic, or water pill, in one convenient tablet. Many people with high blood pressure need more than one medication to lower it. In fact, up to 85% of hypertensive patients will require two or more antihypertensive medications to help them get to their blood pressure goal.
If you find yourself in this situation, your doctor may decide that Diovan HCT may help get you to your goal.
Diovan HCT is available in five convenient dosages. Talk to your doctor about Diovan HCT and ask if it may be right for you.
