Side effects from edarbi
Has anyone had burning of hands and feet and callouses on hands and feet from edarbi? ## Edarbi (Azilsartan Medoxomil) doesn't appear to list any such symptoms as a possible adverse effect.

best time of day or night to take morning or night ## What has your doctor advised? Edarbi contains the active ingredient Azilsartan, which is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure. And, unless they have instructed you otherwise, it should normally be taken in the morning, so it can help control your blood pressure during the times of day that you are most active, since those are the times it is more apt to fluctuate and elevate. At night, when you are resting, your heart rate and blood pressure are normally lower and the medications aren't as important.
