Basic Information On Diovan HCT
Diovan HCT is used for treating high blood pressure. It works by stopping the angiotensin II hormone from constricting the blood vessels, as such constriction leads to the increase in blood pressure. This drug is a combination of Diovan with a diuretic, which helps in eliminating the excess water from the body. The drug also stimulates the heart and is used for patients suffering from heart failure. This drug is used for reducing the risk of death after cardiac failure. The Diovan HCT drug reduces the blood pressure gradually; hence it is important to take it regularly. This drug may also be used in conjunction with other medicines for controlling blood pressure.
