Valz N is a preparation containing in its composition two active substances: valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide.
Valsartan - has hypotensive and diuretic effect. There is a decrease in blood pressure, which is not accompanied by a change in the pulse rate.
Hydrochlorothiazide - refers to diuretics of medium strength. Increases excretion in the urine of magnesium, potassium, phosphates and hydrocarbons. At the same time delays urate and calcium ions in the body. The diuretic effect is manifested after 1-2 hours after taking the drug, the maximum is reached after 4 hours, the duration of the effect is 10-12 hours.
The highest hypotensive effect of the drug is manifested in the first 2-4 weeks of therapy.
Walnut is intended for oral administration. The tablet should be washed down with a sufficient amount of water. Eating does not affect the intake of the drug.
The doses indicated below are given in the valsartan / hydrochlorothiazide ratio.
The drug with a dosage of 80 / 12.5 mg is prescribed once a day for 1 tablet. If the medicine does not show the desired efficacy, then the daily dose is increased to 160 / 12.5 mg. Patients who need further lowering of blood pressure are prescribed a daily dosage of 160/25 mg.
Patients with renal dysfunction with a QC value of more than 30 ml / min, who have moderately or poorly expressed violations of liver function, dosage adjustment is not necessary.
When you take the drug at a dosage exceeding the therapeutic rate, it is possible to lower the pressure, leading to loss of consciousness and collapse.
In case of an overdose, an immediate symptomatic treatment should be carried out by washing the stomach, taking activated charcoal and intravenously administering a 0.9% solution of sodium chloride.
With ValzN, the effectiveness of curare-like muscle relaxants is increased, the side effects of cardiac glycosides are increased, neurotoxicity of salicylates and lithium preparations is increased.
Joint use with other antihypertensive drugs leads to an increase in antihypertensive effect.
Parallel administration of allopurinol can provoke an allergic reaction.
Wales H lowers the effect of epinephrine, norepinephrine, antipodal and hypoglycemic drugs, worsens the excretion of quinidine from the body.
Ethanol, antidepressants, phenothiazines and barbiturates intensify the hypotensive effect of the drug.
Drugs that have an active ability to bind to blood proteins (NSAIDs, clofibrate, indirect anticoagulants) increase the diuretic effect of Vals N.
Joint reception of colestyramine lowers the absorption of the drug.
Taking methyldopa provokes the development of hemolysis.
The simultaneous administration of m-holinoblokatorov (biperiden, atropine) leads to an increase in the bioavailability of the diuretic, which is part of the Wals H. This effect is associated with the inhibition of motor activity of the gastrointestinal tract and delayed emptying of the stomach.
Parallel reception of derivatives of salicylic acid, penicillin G, carbenoxoline, amphotericin B, corticosteroids and saluretics leads to a decrease in the content of the potassium ion in the body.
Joint administration of cyclosporine leads to an increase in the content of uric acid in the blood, which increases the risk of an attack of gout and the development of hyperuricemia.
The use of calcium salts and vitamin D increases the amount of calcium in the blood.

The intake of potassium-sparing diuretics, potassium salts, potassium salts or preparations that can increase the amount of potassium in the blood (heparin), it is necessary to observe precautions and often determine the concentration of potassium in the blood.
