The clinical significance of this effect is uncertain and not sufficient to preclude their use. The following adverse reactions have been reported in patients treated with monotherapy of thiazide diuretics, including hydrochlorothiazide: In each case, up-titration of individual components to the next dose should be followed in order to reduce the risk of hypotension and other adverse events.
Administration of valsartan to patients with hypertension results in reduction of blood pressure without affecting pulse rate. Beneficial effects of valsartan in combination with hydrochlorothiazide on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity are currently unknown.
Angioedema, dermatitis bullous, rash, pruritus.
Older people No dose adjustment is required in elderly patients. When clinically appropriate direct change from monotherapy to the fixed combination may be considered in patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled on valsartan or hydrochlorothiazide monotherapy, provided the recommended dose titration sequence for the individual components is followed. Hydrochlorothiazide crosses the placenta.

Minimal decreases in plasma aldosterone were observed after administration of valsartan; very little effect on serum potassium was observed. Valsartan shows bi-exponential decay kinetics following intravenous administration, with an average elimination half-life of about 6 hours.
As with all other vasodilators, special caution is indicated in patients suffering from aortic or mitral stenosis, or hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy HOCM. Ion exchange resins Absorption of thiazide diuretics, including hydrochlorothiazide, is decreased by cholestyramine or colestipol.

Body as a Whole: Hydrochlorothiazide is excreted in human milk. The antihypertensive effect is independent of age or gender.
Necrotising vasculitis and toxic epidermal necrolysis, cutaneous lupus erythematosus-like reactions, reactivation of cutaneous lupus erythematosus. The antihypertensive effect is substantially present within 2 weeks.
This reduction in AUC is not, however, accompanied by a clinically significant reduction in the therapeutic effect, and valsartan can therefore be given either with or without food.
However, these studies have been conducted for valsartan as well as hydrochlorothiazide alone. In long-term follow-up studies without placebo control the effect of valsartan appeared to be maintained for up to two years.
