Representation for your Benicar HTC lawsuit
According to the CDC, roughly 70 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure. With close to one-third of the population in need of help to manage this condition, there is no shortage of blood pressure medications to choose from. One medication, Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil), is used by millions of patients each year—and they may be suffering devastating gastrointestinal side effects as a result.
2013 BENICAR FDA WARNING
In 2013, the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning stating that Benicar could be the cause of a gastrointestinal disorder called villous atrophy. With this condition, a patient’s intestinal lining loses texture and has difficulty absorbing nutrients which can lead to malnourishment. Symptoms of this disorder include chronic diarrhea, dehydration, and hospitalization.

The first lawsuit against Benicar maker Daiichi Sankyo was filed in 2014. The FBI reports that in 2015 Daiichi Sankyo paid $39 million to both the U.S.A. and Medicaid due to allegations of breaking the False Claims Act. Daiichi Sankyo apparently also used kickbacks to persuade physicians to prescribe their drugs, including Benicar.
