Nexium / Prevacid / Losec Kidney Class Action – PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitor Medication)

Prevacid or Nexium soothe your heartburn only to give you kidney damage? 

You thought you were treating GERD. Instead, you were led astray. 

Call (306) 653-7756 


In 2016, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a study linking Prilosec to kidney disease.

AstraZeneca, Proctor & Gamble, and Pfizer knew their drugs could cause kidney and renal failure, and they sent them out to the public anyway. No warnings for doctors. No warnings for patients. No information at all.

In fact, our lawsuit alleges that they actively concealed evidence of the dangers from the government and the public.

These serious side-effects can lead to lifelong complications and even death.

You’re at risk if you took either drug for a year or longer. 



Which drugs are included in the class action?

The drugs are known by several names, including Nexium, Prevacid, Losec, and Omeprazole. They’re sold both over-the-counter and as a prescription drug. These proton pump inhibitors are meant to curb heartburn and soothe GERD by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach, but long-term use can be dangerous.

How do I know I have kidney damage?

Look for the following symptoms:

  • You’re not urinating very much.
  • Your legs, ankles, and feet are swelling from fluid retention.
  • You have an unexplained shortness of breath.
  • You suffer from persistent fatigue.
  • You suffer from persistent nausea.
  • You feel pain or pressure in your chest.

If you have any of these symptoms, see a doctor right away. Kidney damage can lead to seizures, comas, or even death.
