FDA Benicar Warning

In July 2013, the FDA issued a warning notifying consumers and healthcare providers for the first time about the link between Benicar and sprue-like enteropathy – a condition characterized by severe diarrhea and dramatic weight loss that is often misdiagnosed as celiac disease. Although these symptoms typically stop when use of the blood pressure drug is discontinued, the diarrhea complications linked to Benicar often leave users with long-term intestinal problems that may lead to wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with sprue-like enteropathy or villous atrophy, and you believe Benicar to be the cause, contact an experienced Benicar attorney to explore your possible compensation options.

Benicar and Intestinal Injury Link

In a study published in the Journal of Pharmacy Practice in March 2014, researchers examined the potential link between Benicar use and celiac disease-like symptoms, indicating that there is an association there that warrants further investigation. According to mounting research, consumers who take Benicar to lower their blood pressure may have an increased risk of suffering from a host of serious side effects, including the following:

  • Long-term diarrhea
  • Substantial weight loss
  • Villous atrophy
  • Sprue-like enteropathy
  • Intestinal damage
  • Wrongful death

As more information comes to light about the possible connection between Benicar and potentially life-threatening complications, a growing number of Benicar attorneys across the country are investigating claims filed on behalf of Benicar users who believe they have been adversely affected by the blood pressure medication.

What You Should Know about Benicar

Benicar (olmesartan) was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002, and use of the medication has increased dramatically in the years since, making Benicar the best-selling blood pressure drug in the United States. Despite the popularity of Benicar however, serious concerns have been raised recently about the potential side effects of Benicar, following a 2012 study in which researchers identified 22 cases of Benicar use resulting in celiac disease-like symptoms. The following year, the FDA issued its drug safety communication warning the public that even patients who stop using Benicar may be left with permanent intestinal damage known as villous atrophy. If you have suffered a serious medical problem like villous atrophy, long-term diarrhea or sprue-like enteropathy allegedly linked to Benicar use, consult a qualified Benicar lawyer for legal help.
