PPIs for Acid Reflux May Be Associated with Life-Threatening Complications
When you take a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) to alleviate symptoms of acid reflux, or to treat a stomach ulcer or injury to your digestive tract caused by acid reflux, you may experience severe side effects you never thought possible.
Studies recently published have raised concerns that taking a PPI — such as Nexium, Prilosec or Prevacid — may be associated with an increased risk for serious, chronic, even life-threatening side effects.
If you have taken a PPI and had serious injury to or problems with your kidneys, we believe you may have a right to seek possible compensation. We are accepting clients who, after taking a PPI, suffered problems with their kidneys.
Contact us if you were diagnosed with one of the following severe conditions after taking a PPI:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Acute kidney injury, also called “acute renal failure”
- Interstitial nephritis (a type of inflammation in the kidneys) prior to December 19, 2014
- End-stage renal failure, also called “end-stage renal disease”
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.
