    valsartan recall

    I have been taking Valsartan (160mg) and Amlodipine Besylate (2.5mg) ever since a generic came out for Diovan. Blood pressure was fine (130-80). Then the recall came and I still take Valsartan made possibly in another country and a different laboratory. Since then my systolic blood pressure reading has elevated to the 157-160 range. My doctor is increasing Valsartan to 320 mg and Amlodipine to 5 mg. Is there any reason why a change in laboratories/countries could cause this? male 68 years old.

    Perhaps asking your local pharmacist can shed some light on the particular matter.
