Prilosec, Nexium & Prevacid Lawsuits
Serious potential side effects linked through the use of Prevacid, Nexium & Prilosec are strokes, bone fractures, kidney disease, renal failure and heart damage. Those who take multiple daily doses for a long period of time may have an increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine. Additionally, people who use the drugs appear to have a higher risk of chronic kidney disease compared with nonusers, and an increased risk for stroke.
Hundreds of claims have been filed against the manufacturers of Nexium and Prilosec by individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of taking the drugs.
