Managing high blood pressure is more than just a numbers game

Here's why looking beyond your high blood pressure reading is important

Your first step in getting to goal is to understand what high blood pressure (hypertension) means for you. It's not just about the actual numbers, although they're very important. It's about you as a person—your family history, your lifestyle, your food choices, and any other risk factors and conditions you may have. Put together, it all affects your risk of having a stroke or heart attack. This is why treatment and lifestyle changes are so important to managing high blood pressure. Think about your blood pressure as a way to measure your heart health—the lower your blood pressure, the lower your risk.

While stroke and heart attack are the 2 biggest concerns, high blood pressure affects every part of your body. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can cause damage to your eyes and kidneys. Over time, narrowing of the arteries to your stomach, legs, and arms can lead to muscle pain, cramping, and tiredness caused by a condition called peripheral artery disease.

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.
