Valsartan Cancer Class Action Lawsuit – File Today
Heart failure is usually compounded by or in some cases caused by high blood pressure. To this end, doctors usually prescribe blood pressure medication such as Valsartan, which can help lower blood pressure numbers to a manageable level. These drugs are imperfect; therefore, side-effects are a trade-off for good heart health. That being said, other side-effects are unacceptable given the fact that they may lead to severe complications and even fatalities.

The FDA recently issued a press release warning about the presence of N-nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA in Valsartan. The release cited cases of individuals developing liver damage and cancer as a consequence of taking this medication.
How Valsartan Works
Valsartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker, or ARB which extends one’s longevity after having suffered a heart attack. In addition, it helps treat congestive heart failure as well as high blood pressure on account of the drug being able to relax blood vessels in order to improve blood flow and overall circulation. If taken regularly, the medication can help prevent stroke, kidney problems and heart issues.
Valsartan is made by a number of pharmaceutical companies including:
- Teva Pharmaceuticals
- Major Pharmaceuticals
- Solco Healthcare
The companies named above have already issued recalls of Valsartan, but it is important to point out that the FDA issued a notice only after 22 countries pulled said medication from pharmaceutical dispensaries and hospitals.
FDA Valsartan Recall
While the FDA recommends that the medication be pulled from the market, it is important to speak with your healthcare provider to find out the next steps to take. Please do not stop taking Valsartan on your own until your prescribing doctor has found a replacement for the same for you.
Some of the most common adverse events associated with Valsartan include:
- Flu symptoms
- Upper respiratory infections
- Stomach pain
- Diarrhea and nausea
- Blurred vision
More severe side-effects that may necessitate a visit to the ER include feeling like passing out, pounding heartbeat, shortness of breath, muscle weakness and a weak pulse, and confusion.
