Recently, an angiotensin II receptor blocker is making headlines. Benicar® is causing some patients financial, physical and emotional distress. Speak to a Benicar lawyer at the Hollis Law Firm about how patients are filing their Benicar lawsuit.
Benicar is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB). ARBs are used in patients suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure, if left untreated, may result in serious, life-threatening side effects. One of the side effects of high blood pressure is heart disease. Heart disease is the nation’s number one killer among adults. Hypertension is the first step towards more serious conditions. Benicar is manufactured by Japanese drugmaker, Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. and Forest Laboratories.
The FDA approved Benicar in 2002 for the public market. Since then, more than 198 million prescriptions have been written for patients searching for a reliable ARB. The medication has an active ingredient, olmesartan medoxomil, that is recently getting attention. Olmesartan medoxomil has been traced to different side effects that are putting patients through financial, physical, and emotional distress.
