Uses of Valent-H Tablet

Benefits of Valent-H Tablet

In Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Valent-H Tablet is a combination of two medicines namely Valsartan and Hydrochlorothiazide. It is generally used when one medicine alone is not controlling your blood pressure effectively. Valsartan works by relaxing and widening your blood vessels so your blood can flow more easily. This will lower your blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is known as a diuretic (water pill) which increases urine output thereby lowering blood pressure. If your blood pressure is controlled you are less at risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or kidney problems. The medicine must be taken regularly as prescribed to be effective. You do not usually feel any direct benefit from taking this medicine, but it works in the long term to keep you well.

How Valent-H Tablet works

Valent-H Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide which lower blood pressure effectively. Valsartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB).

FAQs

Q. How long does it take for Valent-H Tablet to start working?

A substantial decrease in blood pressure can be experienced within 2 weeks of starting Valent-H Tablet. However, the medicine may take up to 4 weeks to show its complete effects. Talk to your doctor in case you have any concerns regarding Valent-H Tablet, but do not stop taking it without consulting the doctor.

Q. Which medicine is considered safe for treating high blood pressure?

There are many blood pressure-lowering medicines which can be considered safe. The doctor will advise the exact use of these medicines, keeping various factors such as age, gender, other coexisting diseases, etc. into consideration. Also, the effect of the medicine and response of the patient can vary from person to person. For instance, a person below 55 years of age having no other co-existing disease may be prescribed angiotensin II receptor antagonists (ARAs) (e.g., Valent-H Tablet, losartan, olmesartan) or Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors (e.g., ramipril, captopril or enalapril) by the doctor.

Q. Is Valent-H Tablet bad for kidneys?

Valent-H Tablet does not generally affect the working of a proper functioning kidney. However, there is limited data to support the safety of patients who have existing severe kidney impairment (creatinine clearance <10 ml/min) and are on dialysis. Hence, Valent-H Tablet should be used cautiously in such patients. It should only be used when advised by the doctor.

Q. Who should not be given Valent-H Tablet?

Valent-H Tablet should not be given to patients who are allergic to it, have severe liver disease, have diabetes or impaired kidney function. Also, its use should be restricted if you are being treated with blood pressure lowering medicine containing Aliskiren. In addition to that, Valent-H Tablet should not be used if you are pregnant or trying to conceive. If you are not sure or have any queries, consult your doctor.

Q. Does Valent-H Tablet cause weight gain?

No, Valent-H Tablet does not cause weight gain as a side effect. However, if your kidney function deteriorates, your body may swell due to the accumulation of water (fluid retention), resulting in weight gain. Inform your doctor if you experience any unexplained weight gain or swelling in your feet, ankles or hands.

Q. How long do I need to take Valent-H Tablet?

Continue taking Valent-H Tablet as long as your doctor has prescribed. Do not stop taking it even if you start feeling better. You may even have to take it lifelong, since Valent-H Tablet does not cure high blood pressure or heart failure but controls them.

Q. What is the most important information I should know about Valent-H Tablet?

Taking Valent-H Tablet during the last months of pregnancy can cause serious harm or even endanger the unborn baby. Therefore, do not take Valent-H Tablet if you are pregnant. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. If you become pregnant while taking Valent-H Tablet, stop taking Valent-H Tablet and call your doctor immediately.

Q. Can I switch in between the brands of Valent-H Tablet, since currently the brand I am using is not available?

No, do not switch to a different Valent-H Tablet product unless your doctor says that you should. Since you have to take it daily, keep a stock of it.
