Fort Myers Benicar Litigation Attorneys

Across Florida, people have taken the popular blood pressure medication Benicar to maintain healthy blood pressure levels. There are active investigations into the link between Benicar (Olmesartan medoxomil) and the development of a rare, serious gastrointestinal disease known as sprue-like enteropathy.

Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan, PLLC is working on potential Benicar lawsuits for individuals throughout Ft. Myers and the State of Florida who have experienced severe and chronic diarrhea, excessive weight loss, vomiting or other stomach problems associated with sprue-like enteropathy and that may have been caused by this popular blood pressure medication. Keep in mind that sprue-like enteropathy is a rare disease and you should talk to your doctor before discontinuing the use of Benicar.

Benicar Side Effects

In 2013, the FDA warned that Benicar could cause severe gastrointestinal issues known as sprue-like enteropathy. The condition can appear months or years after starting Benicar. Often the symptoms are so bad that they require hospitalization. In some cases, people have been hospitalized over and over again with no relief of symptoms. Unfortunately, even when a proper diagnosis is made and appropriate care is received, the damage may be irreversible.

While taking Benicar, have you experienced any of the following:

  • Severe or chronic diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Malnutrition
