Azilsartan (INN, codenamed TAK-536) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist used in the treatment of hypertension, developed by Takeda.

It is marketed in tablet form under the trade name Edarbi as the prodrug azilsartan medoxomil (INN, codenamed TAK-491). On 25 February 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved azilsartan medoxomil for the treatment of high blood pressure in adults.[1] On March 8, 2012, Health Canada approved the drug for mild to moderate essential hypertension. [2]

Mechanism of action

Azilsartan medoxomil lowers blood pressure by blocking the action of angiotensin II, a vasopressor hormone.
