Valsartan HCT 160/12.5mg
Uses of Valsartan HCT
Valsartan HCT is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). This treatment is a combination of two medicines, such as Valsartan and Hydrochlorothiazide. Valsartan works by relaxing the blood vessels, enabling blood flow quickly. On the other hand, Hydrochlorothiazide is a water pill (diuretic) that helps the body get rid of excess fluid and salt.
When combined, Valsartan and Hydrochlorothiazide lower blood pressure and prevent heart attacks, strokes, and kidney problems.
