Prilosec And Nexium Users Who Suffer From Chronic Diseases May File Lawsuits
Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor drug. It reduces acidity in the stomach and is practiced to handle the gastroesophageal recurrent disease. It may also be used to treat stomach ulcers and acid-related damage to the esophagus. Although approximately 15 million Americans currently use proton pump inhibitors like Nexium.
A Nexium injury lawyer should be consulted immediately if you are diagnosed with chronic kidney disease or even any form of cancer. To seek compensation for the damages and losses suffered by patients who were exposed to proton pump inhibitor medication, they can file Nexium lawsuits for esophageal, liver, and stomach cancer against the drug company.

Nexium Side Effects:
The most serious side effects and problems that Nexium can cause are kidney disease, bone fractures, and kidney failure. Nexium users have a 20% to 50% higher chance of developing chronic kidney disease than nonusers.
There are other possible side effects of Nexium:
- Abdominal pain
- Chronic inflammation in the stomach lining
- Dry mouth
- Low magnesium levels
If you may have suffered from any of these diseases after taking Nexium or Prilosec then you could have a case against AstraZeneca.
- A design flaw was found with the drug. AstraZeneca did not create a safe design.
- The drug was manufactured with a defect. AstraZeneca followed its manufacturing plans, or the manufacturing process was contaminated. A defective medication was therefore created.
- The drug had a marketing flaw. AstraZeneca knew of or should have known about the risk of kidney failure and heart attacks, but failed to inform patients. Patients who were warned about the danger may have taken other medications than Nexium or Prilosec to treat their conditions.
