It is almost the one year anniversary where the FDA warned the public about the risks of Benicar. (http://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm359477.htm). The FDA stated, “olmesartan medoxomil (marketed as Benicar, Benicar HCT, Azor, Tribenzor, and generics) can cause intestinal problems known as sprue-like enteropathy. Symptoms of sprue-like enteropathy include severe, chronic diarrhea with substantial weight loss.” Anyone who has been taking Benicar and has experienced these symptoms is strongly encouraged to consult with a health professional immediately.
Jason T. Brown, a former FBI Special Agent and Legal Advisor who now serves as a lawyer who advocates for the rights of individuals injured by bad drugs stated, “I’m glad to see the FDA took action, but this product has been on the market since 2002 and millions of people have used this blood pressure medication. Some of these severe symptoms may be irreversible. If you suspect you have one of these symptoms please see a doctor. If an injury is confirmed you should speak with a lawyer about your rights.”
The JTB Law Group, LLC handles class actions and mass torts nationwide. The firm is currently also investigating and litigating cases where employees are shorted wages and not paid for all the hours worked over 40 in a workweek, or for workers who are just paid a day rate and not paid any overtime.
