A serious complication linked to Benicar is chronic diarrhea. When this condition is present for an extended period of time, it can lead to severe dehydration in individuals that can become very dangerous. In rare cases, death has occurred due to dehydration caused by chronic diarrhea. Although the FDA has required Benicar to carry a label warning patients of the dangers of taking the drug, thousands of patients continue to experience negative side-effects.
Other Benicar Side-Effects
Sprue-like enteropathy is the most serious complication associated with Benicar use. Patients are often initially misdiagnosed with Celiac disease, because the symptoms so closely parallel sprue-like enteropathy. Symptoms of sprue-like enteropathy include chronic diarrhea, vomiting, rapid and excessive weight loss, dehydration, and cardiovascular problems.
