Thank you for your question.

Edema around the penis and groin is UNLIKELY to be due to valsartan and other causes must be considered and ruled out.

I would still give the benefit of the doubt to valsartan and stop it and would consult your doctor to rule out worsening heart disease among other causes.

FYI valsartan does not cause slowing of the heart rate.

So the bot***** *****ne is that I would like that you be seen and be evaluated further to rule out other important causes of your symptoms.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
