Prevacid Lawsuit

If you or someone you love suffered AIN, CKD, or renal failure as a result of using a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) medication, like Prevacid, then you may need help from a skilled Arizona drug injury lawyer.

What is Prevacid?

Prevacid is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) medication given by prescription that works to reduce the overall amount of stomach acid and to treat the uncomfortable, painful, and damaging symptoms that come with conditions like H. pylori bacterial infections, stomach ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), duodenal ulcers, acid burns and damage to the esophagus, and other medical conditions that cause damage to these systems or the overproduction of stomach acid. Prevacid is also called lansoprazole as is marketed as a safe means of dealing with all of these, and other serious conditions relating to stomach acid conditions.

What Serious Side Effects Should I Discuss with My Attorney?

Although every medication comes with side effects, if you have sustained serious injuries or have developed life-threatening conditions as a result of your use of Prevacid, it is important to discuss all of your side effects with your Arizona Prevacid lawsuit attorney. Some of the most common side effects associated with use of Prevacid include: diarrhea, pain in the stomach, nausea, constipation and headache; these side effects can become dangerous and may negatively impact your quality of life over the long term. In addition, serious side effects may also have a significant impact on your life: jitters, feeling dizzy, jerky movements, shaking, muscle weakness, seizures, abnormal heartbeat, rapid heartbeat, muscle spasms, muscle cramps or aches, and other issues with your motor activity.

More than quality of life and other damaging side effects, Prevacid use has been linked to even more dangerous side effects and outcomes like chronic kidney disease, B12 deficiency, magnesium deficiency, acute interstitial nephritis (AIN), acute kidney injury, and serious bacterial infections that cause unstoppable diarrhea.

Additionally, use of Prevacid for more than a year may contribute to an increased risk of fractures in vulnerable body parts like hips, wrists, and spines.

Who is Responsible for My Prevacid Injuries?

Working with an Arizona injury attorney is the best way to determine who is at fault for your injuries and medical conditions caused by the use of Prevacid. Drug makers and distributors have a legal responsibility to disclose the potential risks associated with their prescription medications and to ensure that all appropriate research is conducted to inform them of the potential side effects and serious health risks. If you and your doctor were not informed about the potential serious and life-threatening side effects associated with your use of Prevacid, you may be able to hold the maker and distributor responsible for your pain and suffering.

Can I Receive Compensation for My Prevacid Injuries in AZ?
