Edarbi(Azilsartan Medoxomil, Azilsartan Kamedoxomil)
What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.
Edarbi Helps Treat the Following Conditions:
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is the force with which blood pushes against the walls of blood vessels. There are two components to any blood pressure reading: systolic pressure (the pressure in the blood vessels when the heart beats) and diastolic pressure (the pressure in between beats when the heart is at rest).
People with clinical hypertension have systolic pressure higher than 130 mmHg and diastolic pressure higher than 80 mmHg. If left untreated, high blood pressure drastically increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney problems. It is possible to successfully reduce high blood pressure through dietary changes, regular physical exercise, and medication.
Generic Alternatives to Edarbi
