HELP! Has anyone gain counterweight from the large blood pressure medication Diovan? Dr. say NOT a side effect...
Answers: Diovan is an angiotensin II antagonist it causes vasodilation (enlarges the blood vessels), reduce secretion of vasopressin (a chemical that stops you peeing) and reduces production and secretion of aldosterone ( a chemical that keep salt contained by your body) – the combined effect of which is reduction of blood pressure.
All these things it does increase fluid loss a bit than keeping it in, so it aint the drug kid !
