A recent article in the New Jersey Law Journal states that drugmakers Daiichi Sankyo and Forest Laboratories have agreed to a 300 million dollar settlement of a multidistrict litigation by users of hypertension and blood pressure drug Benicar (Olmesartan) who linked their cases of severe diarrhea or intestinal problems related to the use of the drug. Benicar is liked to sprue-like enteropathy, a GI condition with symptoms including severe, chronic diarrhea and rapid weight loss.


The settlement also states that claimants with claims that have not yet been filed against Daiichi Sankyo or Forest in any jurisdiction are also eligible to participate in the settlement program, provided that the injury allegedly resulting from the use of Olmesartan Products occurred in the United States on or prior to August 1, 2017, and the Claimants duly execute and serve the Notice of Intent to Opt In Form for Unfiled Claims and Declaration of Counsel (if applicable) within the specified timeframe. Claim forms must be completed and submitted immediately.

It is important to note that plaintiffs must have sustained an injury related to their use of Olmesartan prior to August 1, 2017. Payouts to each plaintiff would depend on variables such as how many days of hospitalization and the extent to which they suffered intestinal damage.

If you or a loved one sustained an injury related to the use of Benicar (Olmesartan) on or prior to May 1, 2015, and suffered an injury resulting from the use of Olmesartan Products prior to August 1, 2017, please contact Montgomery & Ponder, LLC immediately at (205) 377-5004 or click here. Time is limited and you may be entitled to compensation under the recently announced settlement.
