Edarbyclor Uses

How Does It Work?

One of the medicines in Edarbyclor, chlorthalidone, is a diuretic ("water pill"). It works by removing excess salt and water from the body. The extra salt and water are removed from the body by the kidneys and pass out through the urine. The removal of salt and water decreases blood volume, resulting in lower blood pressure.
 
The other component of this medication, azilsartan, belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). Angiotensin II is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that causes blood vessels to narrow (constrict). By blocking angiotensin II, azilsartan helps to relax the blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure.
 

Is It Safe for Children to Use Edarbyclor?

Edarbyclor is not approved for use in children (normally defined as people younger than 18 years of age). It is not known if this medicine is safe or effective in this age group.
 

Can Older Adults Use It?
