Dangerous Risks Associated with PPI Drugs

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are a class of drugs prescribed to treat heartburn, acid reflux disease, indigestion, and gastritis. Some of the most common PPI medications include Nexium®, Prilosec®, Prevacid®, and Zegerid®. Millions of people across the United States turn to these drugs every year in order to alleviate the painful symptoms of heartburn, acid reflux disease, indigestion, and gastritis.

For more than a decade, there has been a growing body of evidence indicating that PPI drugs can significantly increase your risk of developing chronic kidney disease and related injuries, including:

  • Acute interstitial nephritis
  • Acute kidney injury
  • Kidney failure

These serious health issues can result in the need for dialysis treatment or in severe cases, the need for kidney transplant surgery. If not properly treated, these conditions can potentially be fatal.

The pharmaceutical companies manufacturing PPI drugs updated their package inserts to include a warning of the association between these drugs and interstitial nephritis in December 2014. However, still today, the pharmaceutical companies have failed to include a general warning of the increased risk of developing chronic kidney disease. As a result, millions of people with heartburn, acid reflux disease, indigestion, and gastritis are continuing to use these medications for relief without full knowledge of the dangerous side effects they may experience.

Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuits

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are responsible for ensuring their products are safe and efficacious before marketing them to the public. Failure to do so constitutes negligence, and these negligent manufacturers may be held accountable for all damages caused by these drugs in a product liability lawsuit.

Individuals who have developed chronic kidney disease from taking PPI drugs may be entitled to recover damages for:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
