This Fort Lauderdale, Florida Benicar Lawyer assists clients in their time of greatest need. Benicar is a drug used to treat high blood pressure. Benicar is actually the trade name of the drug Olmesartan. It was created by Daiichi Sankyo. It was first introduced into the market in 1995.
Benicar works by blocking receptors called angiotensin receptors. Angiotensin is a hormone that causes constriction of the blood vessels. Therefore, when Benicar blocks those receptors, the blood vessels dilate – and the patient’s blood pressure goes down as a result.
Neverthless, Benicar can have all sorts of catastrophic effects for the users of the drug (described below). As a result, a $300 million settlement was made with Daiichi Sankyo, the manufacturer of Benicar, in August, 2017. Depending on your injuries, you may be entitled to a portion of this recovery, so it is important to contact this Fort Lauderdale, Florida Benicar Law Firm at 954-448-7288 as soon as possible if you’ve been injured anyplace in the State of Florida (including Miami, Miami-Dade County, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County).

This Broward County Benicar Lawyer represents people who have taken both the brand-name and generic versions of the drug Benicar.
Unfortunately, Benicar can have severe consequences for its users. These include severe gastrointestinal (GI) problems. Sprue-like enteropathy is a gastrointestinal problem that many people have been experiencing as a result of taking the drug Benicar. Sprue-like enteropathy can entail severe and chronic diarrhea, resultant abdominal and stomach pain, fatigue, bloating, nausea, vomiting, malnutrition and anemia.This Fort Lauderdale Benicar Attorney Counsels Clients
Such gastrointestinal problems can cause weight loss and, if they are severe enough, even hospitalization. Symptoms from Benicar usage may resemble celiac disease and are often mistaken for that disease. As a result, many doctors do not initially realize that their patients who are taking Benicar are actually suffering as a result of the drug. If they did, they wouldn’t prescribe Benicar in the first place, and their patients’ symptoms wouldn’t have began. Sankyo, Benicar’s manufacturer, was negligent by not initially informing doctors of the possible side-effects of the drug and therefore causing doctors around the Country to inappropriately prescribe the drug.
