Why File a Nexium Lawsuit?
Nexium is one of the most widely prescribed heartburn medications, and millions of people have been exposed to the “purple pill” advertising for Nexium. However, in their advertising and on the labeling of Nexium, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warning about several serious side effects of Nexium.
Several times Public Citizen petitioned the FDA to change the warning labels on all proton pump inhibitors to include some of the dangerous side effects. While the FDA agreed to make some minor changes to the labels, they did not include every side effect Nexium causes, such as kidney damage.
Now, several medical studies have shown a link between Nexium and a number of dangerous side effects, and individuals who suffered these side effects are filing Nexium lawsuits because they were not properly warned.
People who use a proton pump inhibitor like Nexium have a 20 to 50 percent higher risk of developing chronic kidney disease.
|Nexium lawsuits are being filed for the following side effects:|

|Acute interstitial nephritis|
|Chronic kidney disease|
|Kidney transplant surgery|
Nexium and Kidney Disease
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that people who use proton pump inhibitors like Nexium have a 20 to 50 percent higher risk of developing chronic kidney disease than people who do not use PPIs.
Drugs like Nexium were already linked to short-term kidney problems, but newer research shows a link between Nexium and chronic, long-term kidney disease.
More frequent use of drugs like Nexium can increase the risk of serious kidney injury. The study found that twice-daily use of a proton pump inhibitor resulted in a 46 percent increased risk of chronic kidney disease, whereas once daily use resulted in a 15 percent increased risk.
Treatment for a kidney injury such as acute interstitial nephritis can be very expensive, often leaving patients in difficult financial situations and under tremendous financial pressure.

|Loss of consortium|

What Do Nexium Lawsuits Claim?
Nexium lawsuits are being filed in courts across the country, seeking to hold AstraZeneca accountable for manufacturing a dangerous drug and not properly warning patients about the serious risks from Nexium.
|Nexium Lawsuits Allege That:|
|AstraZeneca spends millions of dollars in advertising for Nexium to increase the number of people using Nexium AND increase the frequency that Nexium is used|
|Drugs like Nexium are marketed as safe to use for extended periods of time, when in reality extended usage has been linked to serious kidney injuries|
|AstraZeneca failed to provide adequate warning to patients and doctors about the potential long term health risks associated with Nexium, choosing profits over the safety of their customers|
