Diovan (Valsartan) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Valsartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention. The combination of hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). The full effects of this medication are usually seen within about 4 weeks.
