Did You Take Nexium, Prilosec, or Another Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) and Become Hospitalized for Severe Kidney Damage, or Did Someone You Love Die Due to Kidney-Related Complications?
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are a type of medication that decreases the amount of stomach acid produced by glands in your stomach’s lining. PPIs are used to treat acid reflux or to treat a stomach ulcer or injury to your digestive tract caused by acid reflux.
But PPIs can cause serious side effects.
These prescription and over-the-counter PPI medications could be associated with an increased risk of developing serious, life-threatening kidney problems:
- Nexium (esomeprazole)
- Nexium 24 HR (esomeprazole)
- Prevacid (lansoprazole)
- Prevacid 24 HR (lansoprazole)
- Prilosec (omeprazole)
- Prilosec OTC (omeprazole)
- Zegerid (omeprazole with sodium bicarbonate)
- Zegerid OTC (omeprazole with sodium bicarbonate)
- Dexilant (dexlansoprazole)
- Dexilant SoluTab (dexlansoprazole)
- Protonix (pantoprazole)
- AcipHex (rabeprazole)
- AcipHex Sprinkle (rabeprazole)
If you have taken a PPI and required hospitalization for serious injury to or problems with your kidneys, you could be entitled to seek compensation. We are accepting clients who had no history of underlying kidney disease, and after taking a PPI, required hospitalization due to problems with their kidneys.
Contact us if you experienced one of the following severe conditions after PPI use:
- Chronic kidney disease.
- Acute kidney injury also called “acute renal failure”.
- Interstitial nephritis (a type of inflammation in the kidneys) requiring overnight hospitalization prior to December 19, 2014.
In some instances, you may have lost a loved one due to these severe side effects. You may be entitled to compensation for the loss your family members suffered.
