Plaintiff Allegedly Required Hospitalization After Taking High Blood Pressure Medication
A man claims his life-changing injuries and severe emotional distress are the results of being treated with Benicar, a prescription medication intended to help ease high blood pressure. According to the SE Texas Record, the man and his wife now seek damages from Japanese drug maker Daiichi Sankyo and two other entities, including the man’s physician, to cover medical expenditures, loss of consortium and pain and suffering.
Additional lawsuit details reveal that the man, who alleges gross negligence, experienced a broad range of dangerous health issues after he began taking the medication as directed by his physician. Ultimately, he required hospitalization due to the severity of the side effects he experienced, among them nausea, vomiting, dehydration, malnutrition, rapid weight loss and acute renal failure. The plaintiff’s gastrointestinal issues, the suit claims, were the results of colitis, intestinal malabsorption and colonic disease manifestations brought on by his use of Benicar.
