I took Diovan for years with no problem. My insurance changed me to generic. Have had daily nausea and at first couldn't figure out the cause.I stopped on my own after 3 months of taking it because I almost passed out from the dizziness and nausea.I'll look for another med that works. This has been hell.

First day of taking I got a very bad stomach ache, second day was even worst could not get out of bed. I hated it. But my Insurance won't pay for the brand anymore. This is a shame since it doesn't even control my pressure.

Comment:
Within the first month of taking this generic medication I have swollen itchy hands, sore throat and developed a cough. I would not recommend anyone switching to this generic med. I am planning to return to Diovan HCT. I do not believe this is the same med as Diovan and think a review of this drug should be done.

My doctor switched me to this Generic of Diovan and within 2 days I had numbness and tingling fingers and swollen fingers and ankles. It doesn't work either for high blood pressure. Mine was higher than on other meds.
