The use of heartburn drugs Prilosec and Nexium have been linked to a number of serious potential side effects, such as bone fractures, kidney disease and kidney failure.
People who take multiple daily doses of Nexium or Prilosec for a long period of time (a year or longer) have an increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine. Additionally, according to some studies people who use Prilosec or Nexium may have a 20 percent to 50 percent higher risk of chronic kidney disease compared with non-users.
If you or a loved one has taken Prilosec, Nexium or another Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) such as Prevacid and has suffered from bone fractures or kidney disease, call us today for a free and confidential consultation.
