Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., is a major Japanese drug manufacturer who is responsible for producing Benicar®. Benicar was designed for patients suffering from hypertension. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a serious condition which may lead to heart failure, heart disease, and other life-threatening side effects. Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., used olmesartan medoxomil as the active ingredient in Benicar. Olmesartan medoxomil has the ability to lower a person’s blood pressure which can be combined with other drugs. Other drugs that contain olmesartan medoxomil are Benicar HCT, Azor®, and Tribenzor®. Benicar, which contains olmesartan medoxomil, has been linked to serious side effects.
Clinical studies have shown that Benicar has been linked to life-threatening gastrointestinal side effects. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered that Benicar should have inserted a warning label that olmesartan medoxomil causes gastrointestinal side effects. Early side effects caused by Benicar’s active ingredient mimic similar symptoms of Celiac disease. Later on, the symptoms may lead to sprue-like enteropathy or villous atrophy. These are serious problems that could lead Benicar users to develop intestinal damage. Intestinal damage is one of the many reasons patients are seeking an experienced Benicar lawsuit lawyer.
