new angiotensin II antagonists

    You'll soon see several new angiotensin II antagonists... similar to Cozaar (losartan).

    Diovan (valsartan) from Novartis will be first...then Avapro (irbesartan) from Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi Winthrop.

    These drugs work as well as ACE inhibitors to lower blood pressure...but they're better tolerated. Less cough, angioedema, etc.
