Benicar Lawsuit Lawyer

Serving Nationwide

Many patients who were prescribed a hypertension medication called Benicar have developed severe gastrointestinal complications as a negative side effect of the drug. Lawsuits against the drug manufacturer are being filed all over the United States as a result. The following is information about the drug Benicar and its connection to the development of severe intestinal problems in some patients.

Benicar is a drug that is marketed by Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. to treat hypertension by lowering high blood pressure. Benicar is also known by the name olmesartan. The mechanism by which olmesartan operates is to prevent blood vessels from narrowing; Olmesartan lowers blood pressure and increases blood flow.

Benicar is prescribed by some physicians to treat patients who suffer from high blood pressure. It typically is not the first medication that is prescribed for people suffering from hypertension. It is generally not prescribed for individuals who are less than six years of age.

A female who is taking Benicar must discontinue its usage if she becomes pregnant, as studies have shown that this drug can cause injury or even death to the unborn child during the later months of pregnancy.

There are other prescription as well as over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and supplements that cannot be taken in conjunction with Benicar, so this drug is only to be taken when under the care of a physician who has full knowledge of the patient’s medications and health history.

One common side effect of Benicar is dizziness, so care should be taken in operating machinery or driving, especially when one first begins taking Benicar. There are other side effects that are common when taking this drug. Anytime a patient feels adverse side effects, they should contact their physician to make sure that this is the right drug for them to take.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
