Benicar is a blood pressure medication that blocks certain receptors, known as angiotensin receptors. Angiotensin II is a hormone that causes the blood vessels to constrict. By inhibiting the action of this hormone (as well as reducing the secretion and production of other hormones involved in regulating blood pressure), blood vessels become dilated.
Benicar has been linked to a condition called sprue-like enteropathy. Patients with sprue-like enteropathy experience chronic diarrhea, weight loss, and other gastrointestinal problems including colitis. Symptoms can reportedly take months to years to develop and may require hospitalization. Some patients may have developed sprue-like enteropathy while using Benicar but been diagnosed with celiac disease.
Financial compensation may be available through a Benicar lawsuit as a result of the manufacturer’s failure to adequately warn about the potential side effects, which may have caused users to suffer complications for years that were not properly diagnosed, including: Chronic Diarrhea, Nausea and Vomiting Substantial Weight Loss Villous Atrophy Misdiagnosis of Celiac Disease
A recent Mayo Clinic study, conducted by Dr. Josephy Murray, has linked the development of sprue-like enteropathy to the use of Benicar. Sprue-like enteropathy is a disease that produces severe gastrointestinal symptoms; such as chronic diarrhea, significant weight loss, nausea, and overall malnutrition.
In July 2013, the FDA announced Benicar (marketed as Benicar, Benicar HCT, Azor, Tribenzor, and in the generic form as olmesartan medoxomil) would receive a label update to reflect the risk of sprue-like enteropathy. According to the FDA’s drug safety communication, this GI disorder can cause symptoms that include severe, chronic diarrhea with substantial weight loss. The condition may take months or years to develop and may require hospitalization, the agency said.
Do I need a lawyer?
Expert witness fees are very expensive. They can often cost several thousand dollars per day. The expert witness fees must be paid for consulting, which includes reviewing records, examining a patient, and discussing findings with the lawyer, as well as for depositions and for trial. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis (meaning the lawyer only gets paid if you win) usually hire the experts for the case. Without a lawyer to advance these costs, you may find yourself unable to afford the experts you need to prove your case.
