If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you may have been prescribed Olmesartan medoxomil, sold under the trade name Benicar. Originally developed in 1995 and marketed by Unichem Laboratories, the product has been prescribed to be used alone or in conjunction with other drugs. At present, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that the potential benefits of Benicar outweigh its potential risks. Nonetheless, serious side effects have been linked to the use of Benicar.
Of the health risks that have been associated with Benicar, the more significant include severe gastrointestinal problems, such as chronic diarrhea, malnutrition and significant weight loss. The FDA has also received reports that users have experienced dizziness, stomach pain, nausea, joint or muscle pain, mild itching or skin rash, and weakness.
If you or someone you love has experienced any of the symptoms described above after taking Benicar, GetLegal has the tools and resources to help you find skilled legal representation to protect your rights.
