Diovan Hct is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Diovan Hct is a combination of two drugs (an angiotensin receptor blocker and a thiazide water pill /diuretic). Valsartan blocks the hormone angiotensin thereby relaxing blood vessels, causing them to widen. The thiazide diuretic increases the amount of urine you make, therefore decreasing excess water and salt in your body. High blood pressure reduction helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.
