Diovan is a blood pressure medication manufactured by Novartis. It is one of the most popular medications in the United States with over 1 billion dollars in sales annually. Diovan and Diovan HCT are very effective at lowering blood pressure and sales have been increasing despite the availability of a generic equivalent to Cozaar and Hyzaar.
