    I have terrible leg cramps. Night times are the worst wake up crying and screaming from the pain. Felt weak all the time. Switched to plain valsartan and now have swollen legs and numbness and tingling.

    Thanks to all for the reviews. They are an eye-opener and confirm my suspicions about Diovan. After many years at 160-25 my new doctor upped the dosage to 320-25 about two months ago. I now realize this drug has caused the terrible fatigue, muscle weakness, and throat swelling that I have recently experienced.

    I started taking on tablet a day which quickly got my bp back to normal. Along with eating better, I now break the pill in half and only take half a day. 117/75 is my blood pressure now and has been for over 10 years.

    I take Valsartan HCT 160/25 for high BP. My major concern with it is urination---sometimes I get up 5 times a night. My blood pressure stays in the range of 135-160 on the upper end and between 67-80 on the lower end at a given time of the day. My uncle was a Physician---he would say as long as you BP is in the range of 100 + your age on the high side---it is okay.
