    Diovan numbness in extremities, diovan hct, tingling and numbness, blood sugar, disc problem
    Has anyone had tingling and numbness in extremities. I did not realize this could be related to Diovan HCT. I used to just take the Diovan without any side effects. My blood sugar has also risen since being on this drug.

    I have also been having numbness and tingling in my fingers and thought I might have a disc problem and was going to make an appt with the ortho doctor. Are you sure your numbness is from the Diovan? See my other post below yours.

    Loss of Smell and Taste
    I have been taking Diovan, Atenolol and Lipitor for about 3 years. In March of this year, I noticed a complete loss of taste and smell. I went to an ENT, had an exam and MRI - all appears to be normal. I thought it might be one of these medications. - 20% more...

    Diovan HCT
    Has anyone noticed decreased urine volume with this drug? I have only been on 80 mg./12.5 of HCT for 2 1/2 weeks. Seems with the added HCT urine volume should be increasing.

    Just saw your posting. You mentioned you were taking meds for high cholesterol. Some of your symptoms can be caused by statin drugs. What statin and dosage does the doctor have you on. What is your BP?
