Side Effects of EdarbiJust like any medicine, Edarbi can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common. The most common side effect of Edarbi is diarrhea.
