Change Drugs From Valesco 80 To Valsartan 80.?
Good afternoon. Passenger asked, I have been taking Vallesco 80 medicine to control my hypertension. NBut recently, Vallesco80 has been withdrawn by its distributor for some reason. NCan you replace the Vallesco80 drug with Generic Valsartan-80? NSo my question. Before and after I thank you.
Hello Ms. Neno! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The two drugs that you mentioned contain valsartan. Valesco caplet 80 mg has indeed been withdrawn by the POM RI because impurities were found in the raw material for the manufacture of the drug. However, valsartan 80 mg (generic) was not withdrawn from circulation because it did not use raw materials from the same factory. Several other trademarks are also still available and are not withdrawn from circulation. In other words, generic valsartan is safe for consumption and can provide the same therapeutic effects. If you still have Valesco left over at home, you should not take the drug and switch to another valsartan. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and control to the doctor regularly so that you always avoid complications of hypertension. You can also discuss valsartan with your doctor.
That's my explanation. Hope it helps and I hope you are always healthy.
