Benicar is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) that is used to control hypertension in thousands of people in the United States. Recent studies have found Benicar to produce dangerous side effects, including severe diarrhea, which can dehydrate and even in some rare cases, cause death to patients. There have been several lawsuits filed against the makers of Benicar seeking compensation for physical and financial damages caused by the defective drug.
Of the eight different ARB drugs available on the market today, Benicar is the only one to produce life threatening side effects. The FDA has recently issued new warnings about the drug and the complications that can arise from using it. According to their statement, Benicar causes sprue-like enteropathy, a condition marked by symptoms such as severe diarrhea and substantial weight loss. Some of the other side-effects of Benicar include vomiting and cardiovascular problems.
