How Should Valsartan Be Stored?

Valsartan should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.

If you do not take your valsartan as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Never take a double dose.
