Drug Information:
Edarbi (azilsartan) is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (sometimes called an ARB). Azilsartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. Edarbi is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Your doctor may prescribe other medicines for you to take along with Edarbi to treat your high blood pressure. Do not use Edarbi if you are pregnant. Stop using this medicine and tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant. If you have diabetes, do not use Edarbi together with any medication that contains aliskiren (a blood pressure medicine - e.g. Amturnide, Tekturna, Tekamlo, Valturna). Learn more
