Product Information

  • Description

    Valsartan is an orally active, specific and selective angiotensin receptor blocker drug. As an Angiotensin II receptor blocker; this drug selectively and specifically antagonizes the action of angiotensin II; which is a potent vasoconstrictor that influences the mechanism of blood pressure (BP) regulation. This drug works by blocking the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by selectively blocking the binding of angiotensin II to the AT1 receptor in many tissues, adrenal gland and vascular smooth muscles. Mechanism of action of this drug results in relaxation of blood vessels that leads to normal regulation of blood flow in vessels.
