How to get to goal

"Goal" is the term used to describe the blood pressure numbers you and your doctor have set as the healthiest ones for you. However, the numbers are only part of the story. Taking proactive steps toward managing your blood pressure with medicine, lifestyle changes, and monitoring can help reduce your risk of serious events like heart attack or stroke.

Why monitoring is important

High blood pressure (hypertension) may not have any symptoms, so you may not know if your blood pressure is too high. Monitoring at home can help you to record and track your measurements over time. You can use this tracker to record your blood pressure readings. Then, discuss the results with your doctor at your next appointment. Your doctor will assess your measurements and see if any adjustments need to be made to your treatment plan.

Monitoring at home

You can buy or rent a home blood pressure monitor at your local pharmacy or drug store. Home monitoring is important for keeping track of your daily blood pressure. By writing down your results and bringing them to your doctor's appointment, your healthcare team will be able to see how you're doing. Here are some useful tips for monitoring your blood pressure at home.

Step 1: Get ready

  • Be sure you know how to use your monitor correctly
  • Make sure the cuff is the right size
  • Don't drink anything caffeinated, exercise, or smoke for at least 30 minutes prior to taking your blood pressure
  • Sit quietly for at least 5 minutes

Step 2: Get set

  • Don't move while taking a measurement
  • Sit with your back straight and both feet flat on the floor. Support your arm on a flat surface at heart level

Step 3: Monitor

  • Take your blood pressure at the same time each day. Blood pressure naturally goes up and down throughout the day, so measuring it at the same time is the best way to get the most accurate reading
  • Take 2 or 3 readings and record the average
  • Record your results. Review your measurements with your doctor at your next appointment

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.
