Prilosec®, a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI), decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach, which can reduce heartburn and stomach discomfort. Prolonged use of Prilosec®, however, can lead to an increased risk of kidney disease or kidney failure. An average of one in four individuals who sought treatment for kidney disease between 2001 and 2008 took some type of PPI medication.
If you have suffered kidney damage as a result of taking a PPI, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss and suffering. Contact The Wolf Pack today to learn more about your legal options and find out if you qualify to file a Prilosec® lawsuit.
