There is growing concern over serious side effects related to the following prescription medications: Benicar®, Benicar HCT®, Tribenzor®, and Azor®.
These medications are prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure and contain the ingredient olmesartan medoxomil.
Benciar®, Benicar HCT®, Tribenzor®, and Azor® are all brand name drugs which are manufactured by Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., a Japanese corporation. Recent studies have shown that these prescription medications can cause alarming injuries among users, including the following: dehydration, severe weight loss, chronic diarrhea, vomiting, and spruelike enteropathy.
In July of 2013, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a Safety Announcement which warned of the link between the use of olmesartan medoxomil and serious gastrointestinal side effects, such as chronic diarrhea and weight loss.
Drug injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are currently investigating claims by individuals who suffered severe gastrointestinal side effects after taking Benciar®, Benicar HCT®, Tribenzor®, and Azor®.
