EDARBYCLOR: Proof of performance

When scientists compared EDARBYCLOR® (azilsartan medoxomil/chlorthalidone) 40/25 mg with BENICAR HCT® (olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide) 40/25 mg for 12 weeks, they found that EDARBYCLOR lowered blood pressure better. In fact, they found that EDARBYCLOR lowered blood pressure about 15% better than BENICAR HCT. Scientists use SBP numbers to measure heart disease risk because SBP continues to rise throughout your lifetime, while diastolic blood pressure (DBP, the bottom number) decreases. As high blood pressure and age are related, SBP is an accurate reflection of heart disease and stroke risk.

EDARBYCLOR −42.5 mm HG vs BENICAR HCT −37.1 mm Hg

Study design: A 12-week, randomized, double-blind, forced-titration study in patients (N=1,071) with a mean sitting clinic SBP ≥160 mm Hg and ≤190 mm Hg. There was a 3- to 4-week washout period. The primary endpoint was the change from baseline in clinic SBP at week 12.

Your blood pressure numbers aren't the whole story when it comes to your health. However, it's important to know that experts say that lowering your blood pressure is important to reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke. According to the American Heart Association, a 10 mm Hg reduction in your SBP translates into a 50% to 60% lower risk of death from stroke, and a 40% to 50% reduction in risk of death from heart disease.

As a combination medicine, EDARBYCLOR is very useful for reducing high blood pressure in people who may need more than one type of medicine to lower their numbers. But medicine doesn't work alone. Most people find that reaching their goal also means they need to make lifestyle changes to improve their overall health and reduce their risk of heart attack and stroke. Talk with your doctor to find out more about what kind of treatment plan may work best for you.

  • EDARBI and EDARBYCLOR may cause serious side-effects including low blood pressure (hypotension) which may cause you to feel faint and dizzy. Vomiting and diarrhea, a low salt diet, sweating a lot, or not drinking enough fluid can also lead to low blood pressure.
  • If you feel faint or dizzy, lie down and call your doctor right away. If you pass out (faint) have someone call your doctor or get medical help. Stop taking EDARBYCLOR.

Indications

EDARBI and EDARBYCLOR are prescription medicines used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Your doctor may prescribe other medicines for you to take along with EDARBI or EDARBYCLOR to treat your high blood pressure. EDARBYCLOR is used when one medicine is not enough or as the first medicine if your doctor decides you are likely to need more than one medicine. Medicines that lower your blood pressure may lower your chances of having a stroke or heart attack, but they don't work alone. They should be part of a complete treatment plan.
