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.

Hemorrhages  Caused by Xarelto

Xarelto Lawyers Filing Extensive Bleeding Lawsuits

Our Xarelto lawyers are accepting Xarelto lawsuits for hemorrhage caused by Xarelto. Nationwide Xarelto attorneys are reviewing cases of excessive bleeding from Xarelto. In a recent Xareleto lawsuit a widow from Missouri has filed an Xarelto claim  against Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Research & Development, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, et al. to demand that the defendants be held liable for the death of her husband. Dixie A. Smith, surviving spouse of Jay Christopher Smith, filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, where it joins similar lawsuits pending in multidistrict litigation (MDL) No. 2592 before Judge Fallon. The plaintiff contends that had her late husband never taken the defendants’ medication, Xarelto, he would not have suffered a deadly intracerebral hemorrhage. Ms. Smith is suing for compensatory damages for past, present, and future economic expenditures incurred as a result of the decedent’s use of Xarelto, including medical and funeral expenses, loss of earnings, loss of companionship and support, and loss of the prospective net accumulations of an estate. Xarelto Caused A Brain  Hemorrhage The decedent’s physician prescribed Xarelto (rivaroxaban) during December of 2012. He continued to take the medication as prescribed until May of 2013. On May 4, the decedent was admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), at which point the hospital staff discontinued his use of Xarelto. He was transferred to the care of a specialty hospital unit on May 18 and on May 22 he died of the intracerebral hemorrhage. According to Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit, her late husband’s passing was a direct result of his use of rivaroxaban, which he reportedly never would have taken had he been fully informed of the risks. Xarelto is an anticoagulant or blood thinner that is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. The medication is intended to reduce the risk of life-threatening complications caused by blood clots, including pulmonary embolism and stroke. Xarelto Lawsuits The product liability lawsuit regarding Xarelto draws attention to several reviews and clinical studies of the drug, including a 2012 report issued by The Institute for Safe Medication Practices. This report stated that there had been “356 reports of serious, disabling, or fatal injury in which rivaroxaban was the primary suspect drug. The report more than doubled from the previous quarter total of 128 cases.” The organization brought these statistics to the attention of the defendants, who reportedly advised The Institute for Safe Medication Practices that the data did not reflect any safety issues that required action. Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit alleges that the defendants prioritized profit over patient safety. Her complaint further claims that the defendants concealed their knowledge of the severe and life-threatening complications of Xarelto from consumers and the medical community. The lawsuit notes that the pharmaceutical giants failed to highlight the risks of uncontrollable bleeding events, nor did they provide medical protocols for stabilizing patients suffering from these bleeding events. Xarelto had been marketed as a replacement for an older blood thinner, warfarin (Coumadin). Warfarin has been used for years for patients who may be at a higher risk of blood clots. However, patients taking warfarin required regular medical monitoring and dietary restrictions, which Xarelto had promised to eliminate. Our Xarelto lawyers have been reviewing claims for excessive bleeding like these. Xarelto lawsuits are now consolidated in an MDL because many people have suffered injuries of a same type from Xarelto. Speak to an Xarelto lawyer today.

FDA Has Issued A Depokote Birth Defect Alert To Your Doctor

According to the FDA, Depakote is also linked to:

Heart defects
Skeletal and facial defects (like cleft lip or cleft palate)
“Anomalies involving various body systems”

 According to a New England Journal of Medicine study there was an increased risk of these birth defects:

Craniosynostosis, which is a premature fusing of a baby’s skull bones – 6.8x
Cleft palate, which typically requires surgery to correct – 5.2x

Actos Lawsuit Update

Actos is a medication taken by Type II  ( adult onset ) diabetics to control their insulin production. Actos lawsuits are being filed for victims of bladder cancer from Actos.

Actos Lawsuit Update

 Actos lawsuits that allege long-term use of the Type 2 diabetes drug caused patients to develop bladder cancer continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana. According to court documents, the proceeding’s next Case Management Conference will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. (In re: Actos Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2299)

Actos Lawsuit News

According to court documents Actos litigation involving bladder cancer allegations got underway shortly after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned in June 2011 that use of the drug for 12 months or more had been associated with an increased risk of the disease. At that time, the FDA ordered Takeda Pharmaceuticals to add new warnings to the Actos label about its potential to cause bladder cancer.
Court filings indicate that more than 2,500 Actos lawsuits are now pending in the Western District of Louisiana, where the first case will go to trial in January. Plaintiffs in Actos lawsuits allege that Takeda Pharmaceuticals and other defendants concealed knowledge that the medication could increase a person’s chances of developing bladder cancer, and failed to provide adequate warnings about that risk to the public and medical community.
On the state level, two Actos claims involving bladder cancer allegations have already gone to trial. Last month, a Maryland State Court jury awarded $1.7 million to the family of a man who died of bladder cancer following long-term use of Actos. However, according to court records, the judge presiding over the trial tossed out the verdict because the jury also found that the decedent’s decades-long smoking habit contributed to the development of the disease. (An v. Nieberlein, 24-C12003565, Circuit Court for the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland.)
This past April, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded $6.5 million to a plaintiff who developed bladder cancer following four years of Actos use. However, the plaintiff is currently appealing a decision by the judge overseeing the case to grant Takeda Pharmaceuticals’ request to set aside the verdict. (Cooper v. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc., CGC-12-518535, California Superior Court)
Long-term users of Actos ( over 2 years ) who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer may be eligible to file an Actos lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

Actos Lawsuit Criteria

1. You must have taken Actos for over two years

2. You must have a confirmed diagnosis of bladder cancer

3. You must have no prior medical history of baldder cancer prior to taking Actos
