Proton Pump Inhibitors and Kidney Failure

imagesProton pump inhibitors (PPI) like Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid, are medications used to treat heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux.  PPIs work by blocking the enzyme in the wall of the stomach that produces acid.  Recent studies show that patients who regularly take PPIs are at risk of acute and chronic kidney disease and kidney failure, which can cause serious injury or death.  Symptoms of kidney disease include:  fever, bloody urine, nausea or vomiting, weight gain, and skin rash.  People with these symptoms may be experiencing kidney failure and should seek medical treatment immediately.

If you or someone you know suffered acute interstitial nephritis, acute kidney disease/failure, chronic kidney disease/failure, or transplant/dialysis after taking a PPI drug, you might be entitled to bring a lawsuit.

The lawyers at Johnson Johnson & Schaller have several decades of experience successfully representing Oregonians injured by toxic products, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.  Please contact us for more information about your PPI injury claim.
