150+ Years of Combined Experience Seeking Justice for Injured Clients
Benicar, also known as Azor or Tribenzor, is a drug designed to treat hypertension but has recently been relabeled due to its harmful effects on the intestines. Recent studies have found Benicar has been linked to sprue-like enteropathy, a condition that looks similar to Celiac’s Disease. Unfortunately, these effects are not treated quickly due to Celiac’s being a commonly (and wrongly) applied diagnosis. In addition, these symptoms may not manifest for months or years.
The symptoms of sprue-like enteropathy include:
- Weight loss
- Severe and chronic diarrhea
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms and are taking Benicar, there are two people you need to call: first, your doctor to seek medical care. Second, you need to call a drug injury lawyer to hold your pharmaceutical manufacturer accountable in court. The law firm of Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC offers free case consultations so we can give you the legal guidance you need. Call (888) 367-7160 today to schedule your free consult with our legal team.
Why BCH Can Help with Your Case
Ultimately, patients have the right to trust the medicines they are given.
They have the right to know the potential side effects of their treatment so they can make an informed decision. Unfortunately, many pharmaceutical companies pay doctors and experts to push their drugs that have dangerous or undocumented side effects in order to make a quicker profit. At BCH, we believe that personal injury law has the power to even the scales, using the law to fight back against pharmaceutical corporations’ extensive resources.
