Don’t ignore the warning sign of high blood pressure. Ask your doctor
how Diovan may help get you closer to a healthier blood pressure level.
A normal blood pressure for most healthy adults is less than 120/80. Every day your numbers are 140/90 or higher, you’re damaging
your blood vessels and making your heart work harder. Diovan relaxes and widens blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily.
It’s the #1 prescribed medication of its type.* Diovan starts working the first day you take it.
Ask your doctor about Diovan today.
