Nexium, Prilosec & Prevacid Lawsuits

Call Our Atlanta Dangerous Drug Lawyers: (770) 884-4626

Recent studies have shown that patients who have taken Proton Pump Inhibitor medications such as Nexium, Prilosec, & Prevacid are at high risk for chronic kidney disease. Individuals who have developed chronic kidney disease or other severe conditions after taking these medications are eligible to pursue monetary compensation by filing a lawsuit.

Our Atlanta dangerous drug attorneys at Schneider Hammers are highly experienced in handling cases related to dangerous drugs. While we believe that medications and treatment are intended to help individuals suffering from health issues, we also believe that negligence and other pharmaceutical errors can cause serious injuries, and that is why we work hard to protect the rights of victims.

If you have suffered health issues after using Nexium, Prilosec, or Prevacid, call our legal team at Schneider Hammers right away.

Common Health Issues Linked to Use of Such Drugs

According to reports, concerns about such medications reach back to earlier than 2006. However, new results now prove that the risk of kidney failure is higher than medical experts had previously thought. Such drugs have been the subject of concern over:

  • Increased risks of chronic kidney disease
  • Increased risks of heart attack
  • Increased risks of bone fracture
  • Increased risks of low magnesium levels or hypomagnesemia

Common Side Effects

These Proton Pump Inhibitors are known to increase the risks of acute kidney injuries in patients who already suffered kidney disease and in people without any history of kidney damage. Chronic kidney disease, also referred to as “chronic renal failure,” is caused when repeated damage or stress to the kidneys results in the inability for metabolic products and toxins to be removed or filtered from the blood stream.

Symptoms of chronic kidney disease include:

  • Fatigue
  • Irregular blood electrolyte levels
  • Fluid collection in the lungs
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Deficiency of urine production
  • High blood pressure
  • Edema or fluid retention
