Nexium and Prilosec Lawsuits
Attorneys are reviewing kidney injury claims nationwide for Nexium kidney failure cases. Although it has been used by millions of people and is widely thought to be safe, several studies suggest that side effects of Nexium and other PPIs may increase the risk of serious kidney problems, which were not adequately disclosed by the drug maker.
Nexium Kidney Side Effects
If information had been provided to consumers and the medical community about the potential link between Nexium and kidney injury, many people may have avoided serious and life-threatening complications by limiting their use of the drug or an alternative treatment.
The studies revealed the following harmful Nexium side effects are possible:
- Acute Kidney Injury
- Acute Interstitial Nephritis
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Kidney Failure
- Dialysis Treatment
- Kidney Transplant Surgery
Plaintiffs who bring successful lawsuits against the manufacturers of Nexium and Prilosec may be eligible to receive compensation for their past and future medical bills, and pain and suffering. PPI lawsuits are mass torts, which means they are filed individually by each plaintiff and are not class actions.
Millions of people depend on heartburn medications like Nexium and Prevacid. However, these drugs may cause severe side effects that can change your life forever.
