In 2012, my husband cut his finger off, was rushed to the hospital and there it was discovered he had high blood pressure. He was started on Benicar 40/12.5. Everything ok for a while, blood pressure came down so we though everything was ok. Periodical check-up and blood work showed everything was ok. Then in August, 1013 he began having periodical dizzy spells. In November, 2013 he began having periodical nausea with some diarrhea. Then in February, 2014 he had severe diarrhea and vomiting, lost 20lb. He went to the doctor, blood work revealed severe electrolyte imbalance. He was admitted to the hospital with blood pressure of 68/32. He was admitted to ICU where he had to receive IV infusions of Levophed and Dopamine infusions to get his blood pressure up. Blood work also revealed complete renal shut down. He had to receive dialysis. 3 days later his kidneys were in complete recovery and working normally. His nephrologist told him NEVER take Benicar again. Yesterday his blood pressure was 186/110, he took a Benicar, within 2 hours he had explosive vomiting and diarrhea. He will never take Benicar again.
