Reviews for Edarbyclor

“I have been trying to get my blood pressure under control for years! My doctor has put me on a few medicines and after a while they just seem to not do much good. My doctor gave me EDARBYCLOR 40*/12.5 , twice a day. In about 3-4 days my BP was lowing, which was VERY good, however I did notice I was having tummy problems.”

“Was on 40/12.5mg and it was very effective lowering the BP numbers to near perfect. It also produced numerous side effects which were eventually unbearable. Chest and back pain, random muscle and joint pain, fatigue, and after several weeks considerable stomach pains and indigestion. Finally had to get off of it. Most of the side effects have receded and I have since got my numbers to where they need to be with a combination of other meds without any side effects. I would avoid unless you have no choice.”

“Lifesaver! Had been on a bunch of others that did next to nothing and the side effects were awful. Within a couple weeks of started Edarbyclor 40/12.5 I was down to 125/85 from 165/95. I also found a pharmacy where they are able to sell it to me for $10/month with their discount card!”

“Age 47, pretty healthy otherwise, and still fairly athletic. Blood pressure without meds 140-150 systolic, 90-100 diastolic. With other meds like losartan and diltiazem it was only 5-10 points lower on each side. But with edarbyclor 40/12.5, my BP dropped within a few days to 103/60 and I felt awful. Way too low. So I cut the pills in half and have been taking those for 4 days. Had a few ok days, but feel awful again today. BP is 108/68. It works in lowering blood pressure, but in my experience, the side effects aren't even close to worth it. Headaches, random pains, back pain, dehydration (even with excess consumption of water), muscle cramps, increased itching (but no hives), irregular heartbeat, dizziness (especially when squatting/standing).”

“I had been taking a combination of 3 different meds to take down my BP. My BP just laughed at them and stayed right where it was. My doctor changed me to Edarbyclor, and after a few days, I'm down to 120/70. For me, it's a miracle drug.”

“Had been taking Telmisartan/HCTZ 80.25 for the last few years until my doctor recommended me to try Edarbyclor 40/25 which I have been taking now for about a week. So far since taking, I feel a difference in a positive way and my BP has gone down. Not a lot of water retention and small side effect of a little headache. Ankle and legs swelling has gone down, don't feel like I have elephant legs and ankles anymore. I give this a THUMBS UP, so far.”

“My blood pressure was up to 200/95 and my doctor prescribed this for me quite a along time ago. It has done wonders for my blood pressure. Usually around 120/80 or can be lower at times. I also take 2 other blood pressure pills along with this. The only thing I have noticed is that my pulse is higher than it used to be. All in all though, this is been a life saver for me.”

“I am now 2 weeks in and this stuff is REALLY unpredictable. I was taking hyzaar before and supplemented with clonidine. The combo works but the clonidine made me exhausted all the time. Without the clonidine my BP was typically around 140/100. Tried verapamil and apparently calcium channel blockers do nothing at all for me. So doctor talked me into edarbychlor trial month. My price for hazaar was $4 for 90 days. Price under my insurance is $214 for same 90 days for Edarbychlor, but doctor assured we could find pharmacy to give discount. Nope. But ignoring the price: Sometimes my BP is 135/95. Sometimes it is 115/75. There is no association with routine or times. Exercise made it plummet to 65/45. So I think discontinue.”

“I have had some of the same side effects,but the one is well worth the other.I no longer experience the dread of having a heart attack,at a young age. I have been on blood pressure meds. Since I was 28,I'm now 45 yo. Been on several different meds for my blood pressure,..Thus stuff works.”

“I cannot take this medication. I attempted to take it 2 different times and ended up with severe migraines. I was foolish enough to take it a second time to make sure it was the medication. Worst migraine of my life. I had to take a 40mg Relpax and repeat the dosage one hour later to get some relief. I was in so much pain, I paid $108 for 2 pills of Relpax that my insurance would not cover after trying Generic Maxalt. Words cannot describe the head pain this medication caused.”

“Drug works just fine. It's getting it that's the problem. It seems to be back-ordered from the manufacturers and it's a struggle to get it. Now I'm out and can't seem to get anyone to get more for me.. even though they keep promising. Now I'm left scrambling to get to my doctor to change medications in midstream. STAY AWAY!!!”

“It took a few weeks to get use to it. My dr warned me of diarrhea or upset stomach for a short time with it, so no big deal. New meds take a bit of adjustment. It helped with my blood pressure and did not make me tired like other bp meds. My only complaint is the taste, it tastes like fish. I take it fast and with water.”

“I've been on Edarbyclor for 8 months and suffered through nausea and diarrhea. The side effect of hives and itching have gone too far. I’m sitting here swollen and itchy and trying to figure out how to get off of this med. I thought it was the Carvedilol but I stopped taking that yesterday and woke up like this after taking Edarbyclor last night. I wanted for it to work because its effective at lowering BP. This is not a good one for me.”

“My diastolic reading never dipped below 200 in well over a decade. Every time a doctor tried to change a medication my numbers would go higher. After contacting a hypertension specialist he put me on Edarbyclor and for the first time in decades I became normal-tensive in less than 30 days. For me Edarbyclor has been nothing short of a miraculous life saving drug. If I miss even a single day my bp starts to creep back up again.”

“Have struggled through a year with this med. It does a really good job of lowering my BP; however, It sporadically makes me dizzy and extremely weak. It is bad enough that I have to lay my head down at work for at least 45 minutes because I am unable to function. I've tried cutting the pill in half, or taking it every other day. My mouth is extremely dry and I remain dehydrated. Will be changing soon. For me, the side effects out weigh the benefits of lower BP and it is extremely expensive.”

“I have been on several different medications for hypertension until I felt like giving up nothing seems to work until the doctor prescribe edarbyclor .. first I started out with one tablet per day, it increased my blood pressure then my doctor recommended that I cut in half , my blood pressure is stable I just checked my pressure and it’s 112/63 I feel so much better. I would recommend this medication. I have headaches and sometimes cramps in my joints but not often I rather have those side effects than having high blood pressure .”

“It works well for me. But I hate its taste. Some aroma is in the coating that's, I assume, supposed to resemble vanilla. Why "sugar " the pill?”
