VALZAP WHAT IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR?

Valzap belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin blockers-II-receptors, which help to control high blood pressure Ann. Angiotenziven II is a substance that causes constriction of blood vessels, leading to increased blood pressure. Valzap works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II.
