 2  High blood pressure I am experiencing heart rate of 120 sometimes higher And have pins and needles. Anxiety at times. I told my doctor about my concerns especially about my heart rate and she said it's in my head. Thinking of seeing a different doctor. I sometimes have to take metoprolol to bring my heart rate down. Without a doubt this medication lowers blood pressure but the side effects is unbearable. F 57 3 months

 1  HBP This medicine dropped my bp to normal range within a week but I've developed postprandial hypotension as a result of taking this medicine. I feel faint, weak, have heart palpitations and have to lay down due to my blood pressure being extremely low. I have no energy and afraid to do anything. I have to take breaks while simply washing dishes. 88/55 was one of my lowest readings. I don't recommend this medicine to anyone. F 50 10 days

 1  High Blood Pressure It really lowered my blood pressure. I had a couple of fainting falls and the dark colored urine and muscle pain is Rhabdomyolysis. The last time I passed out, I ended up in the back of an Ambulance with BP of 80/40 and pulse of 31. BUN was 88, CK level 76,000, I almost died. This happened May 4th, 2017 and I am not the same. I am now on Valsartan 80mg and it is working pretty well. M 57 4 months

 3  High blood pressure When I first began taking this medication I was so excited because in 2wks it lowered my bp from 220/117 to around 138/84. I thought I had found the perfect medicine until I went to see my new doctor and she decided to run a panel of test on me. When my results came back I was shocked because my creatinine had went from 1.2 to 1.4 in that short length of time. I immediately took myself off of it and are now trying Diovan instead. I'm anxious to see if my numbers decreased or has permanent damage occurred. F 49 2 weeks
 1   Awful. Depression F 63 3 weeks
 1  High Blood Pressure At first things seemed fine. My bloodpressure almost immediately went to normal But in May (after 6 months on it) my doctor decided to check my blood chemistry. WHOA!!! My numbers were so off ... Monocytes had dropped to 100 (should be 200-900), my Creatinine was 2.10 (indicating renal problems which I'd never had!) my kidney function dropped from 87% (before taking Edarbyclor) to 25% after ... and my uric acid SOARED to 12.1 (6 or lower is the norm). I developed gout which had to be treated with shots in my feet. And in the last 2 months I was having bouts of coughing which I had not related until the results came in and all these horrible side effects were realized. I have not had such an INSIDIOUS reaction to any medications. If your doctor does put you on this, take baby steps. Agree to a blood panel monthly to catch the moment the problems begin so you can stop in time. You will not feel negative effects until the internal damage has been done. I have no idea how long it will take to recover from this. HORRIBLE!!! F 51 7 months

EDARBYCLOR  (AZILSARTAN KAMEDOXOMIL; CHLORTHALIDONE):  This medication is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This product contains two medications: azilsartan and chlorthalidone. Azilsartan works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. It belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). Chlorthalidone causes your body to get rid of extra salt and water by making more urine. It is called a "water pill" or diuretic.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
