Benicar Faces FDA Review

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is reviewing the blood pressure medicine Benicar because of a possible connection to heart-related death.

According to the agency, the increased death risk was seen in two long-term clinical trials, ROADMAP and ORIENT. In ROADMAP, which involved 4,400 patients divided about evenly between those taking Benicar or placebo, there were 15 heart-related deaths in the drug group versus three on placebo. In ORIENT, which involved 557 patients, there were 10 heart deaths in the Benicar group compared with three on placebo.

The FDA has not concluded that Benicar increases the risk of death. The FDA is reviewing this safety concern and will update the public when additional information is available.

For now, the FDA is advising that patients taking Benicar to continue doing so unless told to stop by their healthcare professional. Both patients and healthcare professionals are being encouraged to report any adverse events possibly associated with Benicar to the agency.

Benicar is in the class of drugs called angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)
