Class action lawsuits continue as litigation moves forward in relation to the side effects of Nexium in patients. Nexium is a heartburn drug, also known as a Proton Pump Inhibitor, that has been the subject of a Food and Drug Administration investigation that is believe to increase the chances of Chronic Kidney Disease in patients up to 50%.
In April 2016, the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology released results of a study that the use of such medications for heartburn as Nexium has a 96% increased risk of kidney failure and increase in chornic kidney disease.
In 2014, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required Nexium to change the label to include previously undisclosed side effects.
Lawsuits have been filed nationwide in relation to side effects caused by the use of Nexium. Currently, a group of lawsuits have been consolidated in Federal Court in California in the Central District. The lawsuits filed are based on a failure to warn patients of the side effects and the increased risk of kidney damage and renal failure. Had patients and physicians been properly warned then patients would have been prescribed a different medication.
If you or a loved one have been using Nexium and have suffered any injuries or side effects, you may qualify to make a claim.
