Edarbyclor works great

I have had uncontrolled high bp 35 years. I am called hyper sodium sensitive and have been to many research drs. If you are on multiple bp drugs this one works alone. I read comments about the side effects and I find they are minimal. If your taking 3 or more bp medications you are having a lot more side effects than this med alone has. I highly recommend this for people that are struggling to find the medication ## Hello, Dan! How are you doing? I am so very glad this medication is working so well for you! Have you experience any of the typical side effects that FDA lists, such as nausea, diarrhea, increased urination, hypotension, and dehydration? Unfortunately, it may not work as well for others as it does for you, since we are all different. Are you on any other medications?

side effects of edarbyclor

This med is amazing at bringing down by bp however I still feel like my head is foggy. My heart races to up 100. Does this go away ? This is week 2 ## How much fluid are you taking in each day? This medication contains Azilsartan and Chlorthalidone, the latter of which is a diuretic that removes excess fluid from your body. If you aren't taking in enough to make up for it, then dehydration could be what's causing your symptoms. Aside from the foggy headed feeling, it cause your blood pressure to drop too low sometimes, so your heart works harder to make up for it and that may be why it's racing. Have you consulted your doctor?

horrible meducation

I read 2 1/2 days.....I'm on my second day. Worst BP Med....I had all side effects too! ## Hi dayna, Which "Blood Pressure" medication are you referring to? I think a lot of these prescription drugs can wreak havoc on our bodies. Fortunately, there are many natural alternatives for Blood Pressure control that in my opinion can be just as, if not more effective than prescription medication if taken seriously. I personally used to have severe hypertension, but was able to control it by controlling my eating habits and exercising regularly. What works for me may not work for everyone, but my initial advice is to look into natural ways. Eating whole foods that have little to no sodium and which are high in potassium and magnesium are solid dietary options for lowering blood pres...

I don't like it

After participating in an unrelated study, my BP was consistently high. So ok, time to get this under control. Doctor started me on the lower dose of edarbyclor. Two weeks on that and my BP was still high. So he upped the dose. Which I read on line is pretty typical. But this higher does? OMG! I'm dizzy all day. Not bad enough to prevent me from moving but darn uncomfortable. And my energy level is in the tank. Heart seems to be racing all the time. Dry mouth that just won't quit and it doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink. I have to wonder what the heck this could be doing to my kidneys. Oh and occasional diarrhea too! JOY! I told the doctor about the side effects and he suggested I now cut the pill in half. Do a half dose a day. But I see no change. I didn't t...
