Valsartan 40mg Film-coated Capsules

The full name of this medicine is Valsartan 40mg film-coated capsules.

Valsartan capsules belong to a class of medicines known as angiotensin II receptor antagonist, which help to control high blood pressure. Angiotensin II is a substance in the body that causes vessels to tighten, thus causing your blood pressure to increase. Valsartan capsules work by blocking the effect of angiotensin II. As a result, blood vessels relax and blood pressure is lowered.

Valsartan capsules can be used for three different conditions:

  • to treat blood pressure in children and adolescents 6 to 18 years of age. High blood pressure increases the workload on the heart and arteries. If not treated it can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart and kidneys, and may result in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attacks. Lowering your blood pressure to normal reduces the risk of developing these disorders.
  • to treat adult patients after a recent heart attack (myocardial infarction). “Recent” here means between 12 hours and 10 days.
  • to treat symptomatic heart failure in adult patients. Valsartan capsules are used when a group of medicines called Angiotensin Convertine Enzymes (ACE) inhibitors (a medication to treat heart failure) cannot be used or it may be used in addition to ACE inhibitors when other medications to treat heart failure cannot be used. Heart failure symptoms include shortness of breath, and swelling of the feet and legs due to fluid build-up. It is caused when the heart muscle cannot pump blood strongly enough to supply all the blood needed throughout the body.
