  • Benicar Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. It is used to treat high blood pressure in adults and children 6 years and above. By preventing the blood vessels from narrowing, the blood pressure is lowered and blood flow is improved. It may be used alone or in combination with other antihypertensive agents, such as Benicar HCT (olmesartan with hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic), Azor (olmesartan with amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker), and Tribenzor (olmesartan with hydrochlorothiazide and amlodipine).

Serious Alleged Injuries may include:

  • Sprue-like enteropathy
  • Joint or Pain Muscle
  • Stomach Pain, Nausea, Vomiting
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness

FDA Safety Warnings:

On July 03, 2013, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to the manufacturer of Benicar. The warning stated that the side effects of this drug were not disclosed to the patients, as well as prescribers that this drug can cause intestinal problems known as sprue-like enteropathy (severe, chronic diarrhea with substantial weight loss). As result of its evaluation, the FDA announced that olmesartan drugs would update their label to include the risk of sprue-like enteropathy.

Benicar also has a black-box warning regarding the risk of birth defects in women who are pregnant while taking the medication

Legal Updates:

TThe company eventually settled with the U.S. Department of Justice on an amount of $39 million. The company had been charged under the False Claims Act.

Many lawsuits were filed against the company by individuals and state attorneys

Daiichi Sankyo and Forest Laboratories faced about 2,000 Benicar lawsuits as a result of gastrointestinal illnesses. In August 2017, the manufacturers agreed to pay $300 million to settle the product liability claims by those who suffered chronic diarrhea and other gastrointestinal injuries after using Benicar, Azor, and Tribenzor.

Evidence:

  • Usage of Benicar in Pharmacy Records
  • Duration of Usage
  • Proof of Injury in Medical Records.

Medical Record Review and claim validation of Benicar case should take approximately 3 hours in most instances; however, this approximation may vary in cases based on the volume of records.
