A serious complication associated with Benicar use is the risk of sprue-like enteropathy. Symptoms of this condition include chronic diarrhea, severe weight loss, and malnutrition. In some rare cases, deaths have resulted from Benicar use due to intestinal inflammation and other gastrointestinal problems. The FDA has recently made it mandatory for Benicar to carry a warning to consumers on its label; however, millions of patients continue to take the drug on a daily basis.
Other Benicar Side-Effects & Complications
Studies have shown Benicar to be the cause of several complications ranging from mild to severe. Thousands of patients have suffered from gastrointestinal complications after taking the drug. Some minor side-effects include stomach pain and discomfort. More serious side-effects of Benicar include sprue-like enteropathy, a condition that causes chronic diarrhea, malnutrition and severe weight loss. Additionally, Benicar has been linked to several deaths from intestinal inflammation and other gastrointestinal problems. In these rare situations, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the drug manufacturer.
