Benicar, Benicar HCT, Azor and Tribenzor are medications used to treat high blood pressure and hypertension. Benicar was approved by the FDA in 2002, however in 2013 they issued a warning about serious intestinal side effects known as sprue-like enteropathy. These side effects are symptomatic of celiac disease and include colitis, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, nausea, vomiting and dehydration. The severity of the injury can lead to hospitalization.
