Since the drug co. switched from Diovan to Valsartan, my BP has been about 10 points higher in general. One thing I've noticed is that my fingernails are splitting and peeling. Has anyone else had this problem?

Experienced severe irregular heartbeat, chest pain and stomach discomfort.Was taking Diovan with no problems. My drug insurance company switched my prescription from Diovan to the generic Valsartan. Stopped taking Valsartan and all symptons ceased within 3 days. Returned to taking Diovan with no problems.

Comment:
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.
