What Is Benicar?

Benicar is a  high blood pressure medication.   Benicor has been  linked to severe intestinal injury, intestinal damage, chronic diarrhea, malnourishment and severe weight loss. Seniors are the largest population receiving prescriptions for Benicar and are the most vulnerable to sever injury from Benicar.

FDA Benicar Warnings

The FDA   has warned patients and doctors that Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) may cause a severe gastrointestinal (GI) problem called Villous Atrophy. Benicar causes the intestines to lose the texture and makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. This leads to malnutrition which and other digestive problems. This is very dangerous for seniors and can lead to death or hospitalization because of dehydration, chronic diarrhea and malnutrition. Villous Atrophy can result in limiting  the ability of the small intestines to absorb nutrients from food. At the most serious stages,  villous atrophy  causes  damage to the intestinal crypts, which is the intestinal lining that surround the villi.

Top Selling Drugs- Which Will Make It To An MDL Litigation

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Drug Lawsuits, Drug Warnings, Drugs and Devices lawsuit attorneys

With new drugs coming out each month and many becoming best sellers we wonder which of these will start to implicate the manufacturer for lack of warnings for a medical condition.  We already know that Xarelto has lawsuits for excessive bleeding and Yaz just reached a settlement for causing blood clots and related medical conditions. According to Medscape Medical news the cholesterol-lowering drug rosuvastatin (Crestor, AstraZeneca) has been the  most prescribed branded drug in the United States, and the arthritis drug adalimumab (Humira, Abbott Laboratories) was the best-selling branded drug, according to the latest data from research firm IMS Health. Rosuvastatin had about 21 million prescriptions, followed by asthma medication fluticasone propionate/salmeterol (Advair Diskus, GlaxoSmithKline), at about 13.6 million prescriptions; the proton pump inhibitor esomeprazole (Nexium, AstraZeneca), at about 13.2 million prescriptions; the insulin glargine injection Lantus Solostar (sanofi-aventis), at about 11.2 million; and the attention-deficit drug lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (Vyvanse, Shire), at about 10.6 million. Rounding out the top 10 most prescribed drugs for the period (in order) were the antiepileptic drug pregabalin (Lyrica, Pfizer), the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease medication tiotropium bromide (Spiriva Handihaler, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals), the diabetes drug sitagliptin (Januvia, Merck), the asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease drug budesonide/formoterol (Symbicort, AstraZeneca), and the antipsychotic medication aripiprazole (Abilify, Otsuka Pharmaceutical). Top Sellers The top seller, arthritis drug adalimumab (Humira, Abbott Laboratories), had sales of about $8.6 billion, followed by the antipsychotic aripiprazole (Abilify, Otsuka Pharmaceutical), at $7.2 billion; the arthritis drug etanercept (Enbrel, Amgen), at roughly $6.1 billion; the cholesterol drug rosuvastatin (Crestor, AstraZeneca), at just under $6.1 billion; and the insulin glargine injection Lantus Solostar (sanofi-aventis), at around $5 billion. The remaining top 10 drugs in sales were the hepatitis C drug sofosbuvir (Sovaldi, Gilead Sciences), at $4.9 billion; the asthma drug fluticasone propionate/salmeterol (Advair Diskus, GlaxoSmithKline), at $4.8 billion; the proton pump inhibitor esomeprazole (Nexium, AstraZeneca), at $4.7 billion; the diabetes drug sitagliptin (Januvia, Merck), at $3.8 billion; and the antiepileptic pregabalin (Lyrica, Pfizer), at $3.4 billion.

Multidistrict litigation is litigation comprised of multiple civil cases involving one or more common questions of fact, but the cases are pending in different districts. Such actions may be transferred to any single district for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings. These transfers are made by the MDL authorized by 28 U.S.C. 1407. Actions will be transferred for the convenience of the parties and witnesses and to promote the just and efficient conduct of such actions. More information on multidistrict litigation can be obtained from the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation at
