I was on Diovan (valsartan) hctz for high blood pressure. I was taken off of the hctz component and told because of high microalbumin level. Now BP is high. Help!
Proteinuria : I would ask your doctor about adding Cardizem to aid Diovan (valsartan) (d) in lowering your proteinuria (p) and BP and stop hctz. As you can see from the image, coronary heart disease (chd) and stroke (cva) are related to the severity of the p. It is similar in the case of renal disease. Using d or calcium channel blockers like Diltiazem can reduce bp, p and their serious cardiovascular consequences. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Why would Diovan alleviate sore throat? I have hypertension. Also, I have suffered from sore throats all my life. A couple of years ago, Diovan was prescribed for the hypertension - the blood pressure went down and the sore throats went away. Recently
This : This medication is in the class of drugs called arbs and work in the kidney and lungs. I can't really think of a way it would directly address a sore throat.
