Nexium Recall: Nexium Kidney Disease Recall Information

Important recall information about Nexium:

Nexium Kidney Disease Recall

At this time, neither the FDA or AstraZeneca has issued a recall of the proton pump inhibitor Nexium despite the drug being linked to serious kidney complications.

The FDA does continue to investigate Nexium, along with many other PPI medications, for dangerous potential side effects. Even with concerns over kidney injury and interstitial nephritis, Nexium and other proton pump inhibitors have remained among the best selling drugs in the United States for several years.

Although Nexium has not been recalled, you can still pursue a lawsuit if you or someone in your family has been harmed by this medication. If you suffered acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, or any other serious kidney complication, you may be entitled to compensation. Settlements in these lawsuits will include compensation for pain and suffering, disability, lost wages, medical expenses, and more.

Our Nexium drug lawsuit attorneys can help if you have been harmed by this medication. Lawsuits are expected to be filed against the drug manufacturer for injuries caused by this dangerous drug. You may be entitled to a settlement.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuit?

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) were introduced in the late 1980s for the treatment of acid-related disorder of the upper gastrointestinal tract, including peptic ulcers and gastrointestinal reflux disorders, and are available both as prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

Drug Lawsuit Source is currently investigating PPI-induced Acute Interstitial Nephritis (AIN), which is a condition where the spaces between the tubules of the kidney cells become inflamed. The injury appears to be more profound in individuals older than 60.

While individuals who suffer from AIN can recover, most will suffer from some level of permanent kidney function loss. In rare cases individuals suffering from PPI-induced AIN will require kidney transplant.

Our top-rated lawyers are handling individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new Proton Pump Inhibitor cases in all 50 states. Below is the criteria required for filing a proton pump inhibitor lawsuit:

  • Patient took one of the following PPIs by prescription or over-the-counter for at least one year:
    • Nexium
    • Prilosec
    • Dexilant
    • Prevacid
    • Protonix
    • Aciphex
    • Zegerid
  • Patient diagnosed with new onset of one of the following while taking the PPI:
    • Acute kidney/renal failure
    • Chronic kidney/renal disease
    • Acute interstitial nephritis

Both patients and their families are seeking compensation for damages. You may be entitled to a settlement if you were harmed by PPI’s.

Is the FDA Investigating Nexium?

The FDA continues to monitor new findings and reports linking Nexium and other proton pump inhibitors to dangerous medical conditions such as kidney injury. In 2014, Nexium underwent an FDA mandated label change after a class action lawsuit was won against AstraZeneca. Now, Nexium’s label clearly states a potential increased risk for bone fractures as a potential side effect. More FDA  mandated changes could be in store for Nexium and other PPI medications as new information on their potential side effects emerges.
