A Kentucky plaintiff recently filed a Benicar lawsuit, alleging that Benicar and chronic diarrhea are linked, but that Daiichi Sankyo failed to adequately warn about the risk.
The plaintiff, Clarence P., began taking Benicar at the direction of his doctor on Jan. 6, 2005, in order to treat hypertension.
However, after beginning to take Benicar, Clarence suffered from a serious of personal injuries, especially gastrointestinal problems. These problems included chronic diarrhea, sequelae, abdominal pain, and bloating.
These complications led to otherwise unnecessary medical treatment, as well as limited his activities and caused loss of enjoyment of life.
The lawsuit linking Benicar and chronic diarrhea was filed on multiple counts, including design defect, failure to warn, gross negligence, fraudulent concealment, breach of express and implied warranties, and violation of Kentucky laws.
