 3  Hypertension On the third day I was nauseous for a few hours. Now I'm nauseous all day. On the 7th day, both hands felt stiff but there was pain on the left hand as well as stiffness. It still bothers me today. On the 7th day there was an unusual pain on my left knee that ice or heat does not seem to affect. Sometime after a few hours of taking Edarbi I feel as if my temples are being squeezed. I will feel light headed and sometimes my vision is blurred and I have to sit for fear that I will pass out. I have a 40 mg prescription but had decided to cut the pill in half from the start. After 3 days my blood pressure is normal and sometimes I have readings of 94/68 (this last for a few hours). I originally started with 5 mg of amlodipine that I've taken for the last 30 days plus Edarbi for the last 11 days. After 5 days with Edarbi my readings have been consistently 120/75 (+ or -). I don't like the side effects and it seems that the side effects are getting stronger. I'm going to have a discussion with my physician because the side effects I feel is not good and may have unintended consequence to my health. The doctor told me to cut the Amlodipine if my blood pressure is 100 or less. However I would rather cut on the Edarbi since I don't have side effects on Amlodipine. Edarbi has been great in reducing blood pressure but I would rather take something else if these side effects ffects do not go away F 68 11 days

 4  High BP Little lightheaded first couple of doses,some cramping. This is the only thing I have taken that has lowered my BP. My BP was 191/115 and by 4th day it has brought it down to 122/77. I would recommend this medicine. The only thing I don't care for is the cramping but I can deal with that all other medicines that I have tried was not working and always made me sick. M 51 4 days

 1  Hypertension Skipped heartbeats,inability to concentrate,muscle spasms Was taking Diovan 160.Many side effects but Diovan controlled my blood pressure.Cardiologist switched me to Edarbi 40 saying it's a more powerful ARB drug.Tried it for a month.It didn't control my bp as well as Diovan.Edarbi produced annoying skipped heartbeats,made it difficult to sleep,burning skin sensation,inability to exercise,increased pulse,it also raised,not lowered,my bp,and finally,made it hard for me to think/concentrate which never happened on any other bp med.

EDARBI  (AZILSARTAN KAMEDOXOMIL):  Azilsartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Azilsartan belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). It works by relaxing blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
