Have you or a loved one taken the blood pressure medication Benicar and experienced severe intestinal issues?
On August 1, 2017, a $300 million settlement was reached with the makers of the drug Benicar to resolve certain claims for injuries stemming from use of Benicar, Benicar HCT, Azor or Tribenzor prior to May 2015. However, there is only a limited amount of time for individuals who have not already filed a case to hire a lawyer.
Benicar treats high blood pressure, but it is also linked to severe intestinal problems. A number of people filed lawsuits after suffering chronic diarrhea and weight loss. People who take Benicar, or the related drugs Azor or Tribenzor, also may suffer from a condition that causes the lining of the intestines to lose its texture and makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. This leads to malnourishment, which can cause other digestive issues such as dehydration, chronic diarrhea, and dramatic weight loss.
If you or a loved one has experienced complications with Benicar, you may be eligible to file a claim for medical costs, emotional distress and further damages.
