Benicar® has been linked to severe gastrointestinal side effects that mimic Celiac disease. Speak to a Benicar injury attorney at the Hollis Law Firm to find out if you have a viable case for compensation.
To maintain and help protect the public’s general well-being and overall health, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was formed in 1906. The FDA has regulations and requirements every new food and drug must meet before being released to the public market. The FDA requires research, tests, and clinical trials before a new drug is released. Although the requirements may be met, it is difficult for the drug’s long term side effects to appear. In some cases, a drug’s long term side effects are only discovered after the public has been exposed to it for a period of time. A potentially harmful hypertension drug on the public market is Benicar®. Benicar was created by the Japanese drug maker Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. and is designed to help patients suffering from hypertension. Benicar works to lower the patient’s blood pressure alone or in combination with other drugs.
