To: Any patients taking Valsartan otherwise known as DIOVAN:
As you may likely know there has been a PARTIAL recall of this medication secondary to contaminants discovered in the manufacturing process created by 3 manufacturers. If you are concerned or wish to change your prescription we strongly recommend that you call your pharmacy and ask them to send your provider a prescription request for an equivalent alternative that they have available. We will do our best to approve these prescriptions as soon as possible and advise you not to stop your current medication until you receive your new one. Thank you very much for your cooperation with us on this matter and your health.
