Update: Benicar Litigation

As of July 2013, the FDA has put warnings on the popular blood pressure drug Benicar referring to the severe gastrointestinal (GI) side effects associated with this drug. As of February of this year, there are many claims being filed against the makers of Benicar for their suffering with a disorder called sprue-like enteropathy, a serious GI ¬†issue that includes symptoms such as violent diarrhea and stomach pains. The main issue these plaintiffs are taking with Benicar is that not only was the pill marketed to have slight dizziness as its only side effect, but the side effects were very similar to and often misdiagnosed as Celiac disease. This left many patients constantly at the doctors office, taking more pills they didn’t even need, and these very sick people were receiving zero relief of their symptoms, some for months at a time.

The word spread very quickly as the misdiagnosed consumers began to find the truth and many of them began to stop taking the drug, not surprisingly over time the symptoms slowed and the problem began to cease completely. There are many claimants out there looking for access to the Benicar litigation and many more that are coming forward everyday.  Some of these victims were so sick they required feeding tubes and other more intrusive treatments to sustain their health and these are the people the Benicar litigation was started for, the ones that deserve restitution for what they have been through physically, mentally, and even financially.
