Edarbyclor Helps Treat the Following Conditions:

Hypertension

Hypertension is commonly referred to as high blood pressure, which is the measurement of the force that blood pushes against the walls of blood vessels. Blood pressure readings are measured via two variables: 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).

Blood pressure readings are considered high when the systolic pressure is above 130 mmHg and diastolic pressure greater than 80 mmHg. High blood pressure can go undetected for significant periods of time.

If left untreated, this condition increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney problems. Some patients are able to successfully reduce high blood pressure through dietary changes and regular physical exercise. Others may need to take medication in addition to making lifestyle changes.

Edarbyclor Active Ingredients

Edarbyclor is a combination medication with two active ingredients. The first one, azilsartan, belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), and helps to improve blood flow. The second active ingredient is chlorthalidone, a diuretic.

General Drug Information

What is Edarbyclor and What Is It Used For?

Edarbyclor is prescribed to patients with hypertension. It helps to lower blood pressure, which in turn reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack, and kidney problems.

Usage and Application

Patients who plan on sourcing Edarbyclor or its generic alternatives online should read the medication guide prescribed by their doctor or pharmacist.

Edarbyclor should be taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor. The dosage depends on the patient’s medical condition and response to treatment. Most patients, however, are prescribed one daily oral dose, with or without food.

Those who take the medication in the evening, close to their bedtime, may need to wake up at night in order to urinate. It is best to take Edarbyclor at least four hours before bedtime.

In order to experience its full benefit, take this medication regularly, and at the same time each day to prevent forgetting. It may take several weeks before you experience the full benefit, but continue taking Edarbyclor even if you feel well. Most patients with hypertension do not have symptoms.

Patients who take certain drugs to lower their cholesterol (e.g. bile acid-binding resins such as cholestyramine and colestipol) should take Edarbyclor at least two hours before – or at least four hours after – their cholesterol medications.

Please inform your physician if your blood pressure readings remain high, or if your condition worsens.

Considerations Before Taking Edarbyclor

If you shop for Edarbyclor online, you may encounter the drug under its generic name azilsartan /chlorthalidone.

Before starting treatment with Edarbyclor or its generic alternatives, patients need to discuss the possibility of allergic reactions to this medication’s active and inactive ingredients. Ask your pharmacist for more details.

It is important to discuss your medical history, especially relating to kidney disease, liver disease, dehydration, gout, and lupus.

Edarbyclor may cause dizziness. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that requires alertness until you are in condition to do so safely. Alcohol and marijuana can exacerbate dizziness, so limit alcoholic beverages and discuss marijuana use with your doctor.

Severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting can increase the risk for lightheadedness or dehydration, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Report any prolonged diarrhea or vomiting to your doctor.

Diabetic patients should note that this product may affect blood sugar levels. Patients should check their blood sugar regularly and share the results with their doctor. Patients may need to have their diabetes medication, exercise program, or diet adjusted.

Edarbyclor may increase levels of potassium in the body. Patients should discuss the use of potassium supplements and salt substitutes containing potassium with their doctor or pharmacist.

Edarbyclor may increase sun sensitivity, so it is important to limit sun exposure. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors. Inform your doctor if you get sunburned or have skin blisters.

Before surgery and certain dental procedures, patients should tell their doctor or dentist about all prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and herbal products they are taking.

Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Edarbyclor, especially when it comes to dizziness and kidney issues.

Edarbyclor should not be used during pregnancy as it may harm a fetus. Women should consult their doctor for more details.

It is not known whether this medication passes into breast milk. Nursing mothers should consult their doctor before breastfeeding.

Delayed and Omitted Doses

Patients who miss a dose of Edarbyclor should take it as soon as they remember. If this happens near the time for the next dose, patients should skip the missed dose and proceed as usual. Patients should not double up on the dose to catch up.

Other Medications and Edarbyclor

Drug interactions may change the way Edarbyclor and its generic alternatives work, increasing the risk of side effects. Before starting treatment, patients should discuss all medications and supplements they are taking with their physician. Patients should not change their dose or stop taking this medication unless advised to do so by their doctor.

Some drugs like blood pressure medications containing aliskiren (e.g. Tekturna) and the mood stabilizer lithium (e.g. Eskalith) may interact negatively with Edarbyclor. The same goes for drugs which increase potassium levels, like hypertension drugs benazepril and lisinopril, as well as birth control pills containing drospirenone (e.g. Angeliq).

The gastrointestinal tract medication cisapride also has the same effect, as does the antiarrhythmic drug dofetilide.

Diet aids, cough-and-cold products, and NSAIDs often contain ingredients that raise blood pressure. Patients should discuss the safe use of these products with their doctor or pharmacist.

Edarbyclor may interfere with certain laboratory tests, possibly causing false results. Patients should inform laboratory personnel that they use this medication.
