What Is Valsartan?

Valsartan is a drug used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It is in the category of drugs known as “angiotensin II receptor blockers” (ARBs). Valsartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and keeps blood flowing.

Valsartan is the generic name of the drug. The brand name drug, Diovan, has not been recalled.

FDA Recalls of Valsartan

The FDA began recalling batches of Valsartan in 2018, finding that the drugs were contaminated with impurities, potentially cancer-causing N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA).

Since then, nearly two dozen recalls have been issued for Valsartan and other ARB class drugs. The generic ARB drugs Losartan and Irbesartan have also tested positive for potential carcinogens.

The FDA has published a list of those recalls by manufacturer and lot number at this link.
