How can I minimize the side effects of Edarbi?

To minimize the side effects of Edarbi (azilsartan), be aware that in combination with other steps you are taking to lower your blood pressure it could cause your blood pressure to drop too low.

This side effect is more likely to happen if you also take diuretics or other medications to treat high blood pressure, or if you follow a low-salt diet, don't drink enough fluids, or have a bout with an illness that causes diarrhea and/or vomiting. If any of these factors apply to you, be sure to discuss them with your doctor. Also, make a list of all your medicines (prescription and nonprescription), as well as any supplements that you take, and give it to your doctor and pharmacist to minimize your risk of side effects caused by interactions with Edarbi.

You should not take Edarbi if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding. It may harm your baby, especially if taken during the second or third trimester of pregnancy.
