What is Edarbi?
Edarbi is a drug used to combat high blood pressure so you can live a healthy life. Lowering high blood pressure reduces your risk of strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems.
You want to be the healthiest you can be, which means means controlling what you eat, getting enough exercise and finding out if medication is right for you. Medicine is an essential part of regaining control over your blood pressure, and Edarbi can help you achieve that.
How does Edarbi work?
Edarbi is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (or ARB) that helps your blood vessels relax. By doing so, your blood vessels allow blood to flow more freely, reducing the workload on your heart.
Edarbi dosage and treatment
The recommended starting dose for an Edarbi treatment plan is 80 mg once daily and Edarbi can be taken with or without food.
It is important to always consult your doctor before starting Edarbi, and follow the treatment plan given to you. Edarbi may be used in combination with other hypertensive agents, and therefore your dosage may vary on an individual basis.
Benefits of Edarbi
Edarbi relieves hypertension in your blood vessels. By reducing your blood pressure, Edarbi allows your heart to pump more efficiently. This lowers your risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney problems.
