Rockville Centre, NY - May 9th, 2014 - The number of Benicar diarrhea lawsuits has been growing steadily over the past few months as more plaintiffs come forward to sue Daiichi Sankyo, the manufacturer of the popular high blood pressure medication. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which represents plaintiffs with claims stemming from Benicar injuries including sprue-like enteropathy, has established a Web site, www.benicarlawsuits.net, to keep users updated with the latest legal news on these personal injury cases.
For more than a decade, Benicar (olmesartan) has been a widely-prescribed high blood pressure medication used by millions of Americans. A study performed by researchers at the Mayo Clinic in August 2012 found that long-term use of Benicar can lead to a gastrointestinal condition known as sprue-like enteropathy, which is characterized by severe, or chronic diarrhea, and significant weight loss. In some cases, the symptoms can mimic Celiac disease, leading to false diagnoses in some patients. Plaintiffs are alleging that Daiichi Sankyo failed to warn Benicar users of the possibility of these severe adverse side effects, and are seeking compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages caused by the drug. It is thought that many patients have been suffering in silence for years, not realizing that the blood pressure medication could possibly be to blame for their health problems.
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages anyone who believes they have been injured by Benicar to visit the firm’s Web site for information about filing a lawsuit to obtain compensation for injuries caused by the drug. Our Benicar attorneys can help determine whether or not there is cause to sue Daiichi Sanko for side effects caused by Benicar.
