If you have begun to suffer severe illnesses or negative symptoms after taking the drug Benicar, you could have a case against the drug manufacturer. As a personal injury law firm, we know how devastating it can be to take your prescription drugs only to find that instead of making you better, it actually makes you worst. Unfortunately, this is all too common especially since many drugs are being used for new purposes that they were not initially intended for.  As a result, the appropriate drug warnings are not always forthcoming and it is common for people to be prescribed medication before all the side effects are well-known or properly conveyed. This is certainly true in the case of Benicar.

It wasn’t until 2013 that the FDA began requiring drug manufacturers to include warnings regarding intestinal problems on Benicar, Tribenzor, HCT, Azor, and generic brands of these drugs. ¬†Since the drug itself was approved in 2002, there have been millions of prescriptions issued without the proper warnings. ¬†If you are someone that has been impacted by this, call our office to discuss the possibility of filing a lawsuit.

Common Symptoms

Taking Benicar can lead to sprue-like enteropathy which can first appear to be Celiac disease. This condition can lead to diarrhea and sudden or severe weight loss.

Proving Negligence

Hiring an attorney is important because of the need to prove negligence or fault.  We need to demonstrate that you were not given the proper warning and that you were unaware that you could suffer intestinal problems.  Also, we need to show that you have indeed suffered harm, what your medicals have been as a result, and how the side effects of taking Benicar has harmed you.  Then, we need to put this in context of the financial damages you have suffered. This requires time and investigative resources, making it in your best interest to hire an attorney that is familiar with these types of cases. We are and we would be happy to assist you.
