What is Valturna?

Valturna (aliskiren-valsartan) is a prescription drug that's used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Valturna contains two different medicines: aliskiren (a direct renin inhibitor [DRI]) and valsartan (an angiotensin II receptor blocker [ARB]). Aliskiren helps blood vessels relax and widen, and valsartan blocks a chemical that causes blood vessels to narrow. When combined in a single tablet, these medications can help lower blood pressure.
