Are You Suffering Complications From Nexium Or Prilosec?

When introduced to the market, Nexium and Prilosec seemed to offer millions of Americans the relief they needed from acid reflux. Not many know that Prilosec and Nexium as essentially the same drug, only molecules away from each other.

Nexium, also known as "The Purple Pill" is the 3rd most prescribed drug in the world with $6.3 billion in sales in the same one year period. Unfortunately, people were not warned about all of the risks that are associated with this class of drugs, protein pump inhibitors (PPI's). They were unable to make informed choices regarding whether or not taking Nexium or Prilosec was worth the risk or if they should look for other ways to deal with their acid reflux and other digestive tract issues.

These drugs were never meant to be prescribed for long term, everyday use. Although from their marketing campaigns stating "One Pill Each Morning", "24 Hours Zero Heartburn", and resistance to place a warning on the label, how would you have known that the use these over the counter drugs would you would increase your risk of Chronic Kidney Disease by 20-50percent!

These drugs have been pathologically linked to cause the following injuries to the renal system.

  • Renal or Kidney Failure
  • Acute Kidney Injury
  • Acute Interstitial Nephritis
  • Chronic Kidney Disease

Regular usage of Nexium and/or Prilosec or the generic forms Omeprazole and Esomeprazole Magnesium over an extended period creates the highest level of risk.

If you have been diagnosed with any of the above injuries to your kidneys, undergone a kidney biopsy, are or have been on dialysis or had kidney removal or a kidney transplant and if you or a loved one suffered medical issues that you believe were caused by taking Nexium or Prilosec, you may have a claim for compensation.
