Benicar Gastrointestinal Side Effects

Does the intake of Benicar can resolve high blood pressure?

Basically, there are two types of high blood pressure, the first one is commonly known as hypertension. The cause of the problem is indefinite, typically, it happens when a person’s emotional behavior is infuriated. Another type is called the secondary hypertension which is uncommon due to specific medical condition such as pregnancy, thyroid problem and alcohol addiction. One possible factor of having high blood pressure is through genetics which means that this type of condition can be inherited.

Another factor is due to lifestyle and diet, if your lifestyle lacks physical activities and your intake of food has too much cholesterol, possibly there is a good chance that you can acquire the disease as well. Stress is also a factor. Blood pressure can shoot up when people are doing physical activities prior to getting their blood pressure checked. That is why it is best to take some rest first before getting your BP checked for accurate results.

Other factors of high blood pressure:

  • Obesity

  • Over weight

  • Intake of too much salt

  • Stress or strains due to work

  • Intake of food with too much cholesterol

  • Lifestyle (less physical activity)

People who are obese have a greater chance of having high BP, in fact obesity is the number one cause of it. While too much intake of salt can cause your veins to contract that makes the blood pressure ascend.

About Benicar & Benicar Gastrointestinal Side Effects

Benicar was organically designed to treat people who are suffering from high blood pressure. It was developed by Japanese Drug maker Daiichi Sankyo. It was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the United States back in 2002. However, there are recent reports that taking such medication have caused gastrointestinal side effects which include the following:

  • Sudden weight loss

  • Intestinal Damage

  • Severe Diarrhea

  • Malnourishment

  • Extreme Abdominal Pain

  • Gastrointestinal Side Effects

  • Kidney failure

  • Irregular heart beat

Benicar contains olmesartan which is a natural protein made from the body that affects the cardiovascular system which include controlling the blood pressure. When olmesteran blocks the ARB or Angiotensin II, it stops from narrowing the blood vessels in our body to aid in the smooth flow of the blood through the bloodstream. However, some patients suffer from different side effects which are mentioned above. Unfortunately, most of them needed medical attention and have been hospitalized for quite some time.

Does the FDA still approve the medication?

The FDA requires Daiichi Sankyo to include label that specified as “For Fetal Toxicity” which is not recommended of pregnant women.
