An estimated 15 million Americans are currently taking drugs like Nexium which work to control heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux. Unfortunately, those who turn to Nexium and other Proton-pump inhibitors will need to proceed much more cautiously as studies have confirmed that taking these drugs increase the chance of kidney problems – and even kidney failure – by as much as fifty percent. Proton-pump inhibitors are a class of drugs which include Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid which work by blocking the secretion of acid into the stomach. These extremely common medications are sold both by prescription and over-the-counter. The recent discovery of this increased risk of chronic kidney disease and even failure means that much more care must be taken in determining if a person should be popping the purple pill. America's Lawyer, Mike Papantonio, discusses this with Thom Hartmann.

Proton Pump Inhibitor Flaws Spurring Litigation Millions of Americans take proton pump inhibitors like Nexium and Prilosec for gastric distress, but the solution may be worse than the problem. Proton pump inhibitors alleviate problems like acid reflux and heartburn by reducing the amount of stomach acid produced. A growing body of research suggests that long-term use of these drugs can cause major health problems. Proton pump inhibitor side effects can include serious kidney damage and kidney failure. A growing number of lawsuits are challenging big drug companies on this matter, arguing that the companies have downplayed the very serious long-term effects of these drugs. People seeking relief from common complaints like heartburn and gastric reflux shouldn’t have to run the risk of serious kidney damage, and drug companies should be upfront about the risks these drugs pose. If you’re among the 15 million Americans who regularly take PPI drugs, and you’ve experienced side effects from these medications, you may be able to recover compensation in a court of law.

Millions of Americans take a proton pump inhibitor everyday in the form of Nexium and Prilosec, but what most of these people don’t know is that these drugs come with some dangerous side effects. America’s Lawyer, Mike Papantonio, talks about these side effects with attorney Neil Overholtz. Find out more about the Nexium litigation at https://www.levinlaw.com/prilosec-nexium-lawsuit-lawyer-side-effects-recall-help and http://drugsafetynews.com/nexium/ An estimated 15 million Americans are currently taking drugs like Nexium which work to control heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux.

The recent discovery of this increased risk of chronic kidney disease and even failure means that much more care must be taken in determining if a person should be popping the purple pill. The issue with Nexium and other drugs in its class is that since their creation in the 1980s, they were considered to be very safe, with no real side effects. This led to the popularity of the drug and a much more lax attitude about taking large doses and prescribing it to any and all patients with reflux issues. It is very possible that these drugs, prescribed and taken in such massive numbers, are being over-prescribed. Studies have suggested that as many as 75 percent of those who take proton-pump inhibitors need not do so. Spread the word!

PPI Safety Issues Dr. Jack Cush writing in Rheum Now reviewed the safety of proton pump inhibitors, drugs that have been used for peptic ulcer disease, as well as reflux. Among the safety concerns are… PPIs will decrease gastric acid and may affect drug blood levels where absorption is acid dependent, including several antiretroviral and cancer therapy drugs. Other drugs, such as digoxin, may be absorbed more extensively when gastric acid is reduced; thus, digoxin toxicity may occur with PPI use. Warfarin's effect also is increased in patients taking PPIs. Decreased gastric acid can lower absorption of vitamin B12, calcium, iron, and magnesium. An analysis of 9 studies found a 40% increased risk of low magnesium with PPI. If severe, hypomagnesemia may lead to muscle weakness, tetany, convulsions, arrhythmias. Due to the lowering of gastric acidity, there is a higher risk of Clostridium difficile infection and community-acquired pneumonia among PPI users. Recent large reviews show that there is a 50% increased risk of chronic kidney disease and an increased risk of acute kidney disease with chronic PPI use. PPIs may decrease bone density and increase fracture risk by reducing intestinal calcium absorption. Given these impactful risks, clinicians should try to use the lowest possible dose of PPI and to discontinue PPI therapy if it is not essential. The benefits of PPI therapy must be weighed against their potential contribution to harm in susceptible individuals. Some patients may benefit from intermittent or on-demand regimens may be sufficient to manage problems or control symptoms. Comment: Food for thought.

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, and Aciphex have been available for about 20 years and each year about 15 million people use them and bring in $10 billion every year. PPIs are vastly overprescribed by MDs and because they are available over the counter, are overused by patients. The major known side effects of PPIs include poor digestion, poor absorption of B12, iron, calcium, and magnesium which lead to an increased risk for osteoporosis, senile dementia, C difficile infections, pneumonia and now according to articles in the January 11, 2016 issue of the journal Internal Medicine an increased risk for having chronic kidney disease and, as documented in the June of 2015 issue of the journal PLoS One, heart attacks. PPIs also block the metabolism of Valium, Coumadin, DIlantin, Digoxin and probably decrease the effectiveness of Plavix. For more information, visit http://doctorsaputo.com

http://www.mcgartland.com/ Proton-pump inhibitors, or “PPIs,” are often prescribed for the treatment of heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease, ulcers, and other gastro-intestinal issues. Some common brand names include Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid, and Protonix, but there are many prescription or over-the-counter medications that share similar active ingredients. While these medications do help lower stomach acid and relieve patients’ symptoms, there has been a growing concern about the potentially life-threatening side effects associated with PPIs. Especially in cases of long-term use, research has indicated a link between PPIs and an increased risk of heart attacks, kidney damage, infections, and lowered bone density or fractures. Lawsuits from families around the nation have now been filed against several of the manufacturers of these medications. They claim that these companies failed to warn the public of the potentially dangerous side effects of PPIs and that they used unethical marketing practices to promote the drugs. Our law firm is currently reviewing cases from families who have been affected and helping them determine if they have the right to hold the manufacturers responsible for the costs of their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses. While many medications come with side effects, doctors and patients need to be informed about the risk so that they can make the best decisions for a patient’s wellbeing. The lawsuits against PPI manufacturers claim that proper warning of the drug’s dangers would have allowed patients to seek safer alternatives for heartburn treatment—or at least watch more closely for signs of potential problems while taking the drug. If you believe you or a family member has been harmed by prescription PPIs, we encourage you to reach out to us with your questions. The McGartland Law Firm has over 30 years of experience helping individuals and families understand their legal rights, and we look forward to helping you get the answers and support you need.

Heartburn Pills Damage Your Heart, Kidneys and Bones…Here’s What You Can Do To Fix This !! According to the latest statistics, heartburn is one of the most common digestive disorders in the United States. The experts warn that you should be very careful, because if it’s left untreated, acid reflux can cause irritation and damage to the esophagus, lungs, vocal cords and throat as well as cause pneumonia, ulcers, and breathing problems. This condition can quickly become unmanageable as sufferers have trouble going about their daily lives because of chest pain experienced after meals and throughout the night. Heartburn “appears” when stomach acid backs up into the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Prescripion proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) reduce the production of acid in the stomach. This makes any stomach juice that may reach the esophagus less irritating. Ladies and gentlemen, this is very important for you to remember – these drugs are not a quick fix. They can have devastating side-effects and multiple studies have shown that 70% of patients taking them don’t actually need them. Here are just a few risks associated with this medication. 1. Kidneys Disease A recent study, conducted by group of experts at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health, has analyzed two sets of data representing more than 250,000 people in an attempt to find a link between PPI use and kidney problems. The experts found that regular users of PPIs were 13% more likely to develop chronic kidney disease than acid reflux sufferers that do not take the medication. Other studies have found that PPI use makes patients 20%-50% higher risk of chronic kidney disease. The condition is known to cause toxic overload, fluid retention and central nervous system damage. 2. Heart Disease Study, conducted by scientists at the Stanford University in California, has found that people with gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD) who took PPIs had a 16 % risk of heart attack. They were also twice as likely to die from cardiovascular problems. Another study has found that the drug may lead to cardiovascular problems. The findings show that proton-pump inhibitors may not only lower stomach acid, they may also affect the health of the blood vessel itself. This is mostly because of the reduced levels of nitric oxide, a chemical which is produced to protect and relax blood vessels. This can lead to an increased risk of heart attack. According to Dr. John Cooke, chair of cardiovascular sciences at the Houston Methodist Research Institute, PPI users are 16- 21% more likely to suffer a heart attack over a 17-year period than chronic acid reflux suffers who were not taking the medication. 3. Fracture Risk You should also know that the FDA has issued warnings about the increased risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures associated to PPI use. PPI use of at least 7 years was shown to make patient two times more likely to suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture. The experts also warn that 5 years of regular use was associated with an increased risk of hip fractures. Other affected areas included the wrist and spine. 4. Nutrient Malabsorption We all know that the stomach acid is important for the body to absorb vitamin B12 and magnesium. Other nutritional deficiencies caused by the drug include calcium and iron. This can lead to: Seizures Arrhythmias Muscle spasms Anemia Nerve damage Psychiatric problems Dementia NOTE: acid reflux medication can cause these problems within the first year of use. Unfortunately, supplements cannot remedy these deficiencies as long as the drugs are still being taken. And, one last thing – PPIs have also been linked to pneumonia and Clostridium difficile infection and PPI therapy has led to an increase in hospital mortality in about 90% of patients.

The experts warn that you should be very careful, because if it’s left untreated, acid reflux can cause irritation and damage to the oesophagus, lungs, vocal cords and throat as well as cause pneumonia, ulcers, and breathing problems. This condition can quickly become unmanageable as sufferers have trouble going about their daily lives because of chest pain experienced after meals and throughout the night. UNFORTUNATELY, more than 15 million Americans currently rely on prescription heartburn medication to manage their symptoms. Proton pump inhibitors, the main medication prescribed for the condition, are currently the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. The MILLION-DOLLAR question – how does heartburn medication work? First of all, you should know that there are many different types of heart medications on the market shelves today. And, some of them, like tums and pesto-bismol, are available over-the-counters. And others, like Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium, can only be taken through a prescription.

Eczema or Psoriasis (auto-immune conditions). Due to Prevacid, Protonix, Nexium (PPIs) Could PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors) such as Omeprazole, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, Pantoprazole, Nexium cause Eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), diabetes type 1, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis (auto-immune conditions) The article was published in PubMed: Esomeprazole Induces Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Transmucosal Permeability Increase, states that: "Esomeprazole induced a significant transmucosal leak in the upper GI tract of patients taking the drug for the first time. The leak occurred quickly, within days of first taking the drug. The leak was also reversed within days of stopping the medication." It concludes that:" There are potential implications for transmucosal leak of other medications that a patient on a PPI may be taking, as well as possible leak of endogenous peptides/proteins. The clinical consequences of this phenomenon are currently unknown, but are potentially important. PMID: 18684245 DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2036.2008.03824.x The concept explained. When "gaps" got formed in GI, big particles, proteins, could "leak" into the blood stream, acting as Anti-gens (Ag). Immune system attacks them, by forming Anti-bodies (Ab). Ag-Ab complex deposited in tissues. Because Ag-Ab system is a foreign substance in the tissues, immune system attacks the host own tissues. its called auto-immune condition.

Proton pump inhibitors are very common prescription medications given to people with heartburn and acid reflux disease. You may know them as Nexium, Prevacid, or Prilosec, or by another familiar brand name. They work by blocking acid buildup in the stomach But they have also been found to limit the absorption of minerals your body needs – that’s a serious PPI side-effect. But even more seriously, it can result in acute kidney injury or interstitial nephritis, chronic kidney disease, or even kidney failure, requiring dialysis treatment or a kidney transplant. These Proton Pump Inhibitors side effects have also been linked to heart attack and bone fractures. Proton-pump inhibitors are marketed as safe and effective. But now, it appears that the drug makers may not have adequately warned the public about known side effects of acid reflux drugs. It’s possible that such warnings to both patients and doctors might have helped them to choose to take action that would have avoided serious injury. If you or a loved one developed any of these conditions after taking a proton pump inhibitor heartburn medication, you should talk with a Proton Pump Inhibitor lawyer. Too often drug manufacturers put making profit over people. These heart burn drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If they fail to do this, they should be held responsible for injuries that it causes. These PPI makers don’t have to live with the consequences of failing to warn of risks they knew or should have known from. Consequences that the victims and their families have to live with every single day. At Greg Jones Law we want to hold PPI companies responsible to get you or your loved one paid for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and for any permanent disability you or a loved one may suffer due to these drugs.

Top Ten Drugs That Cause Kidney Damage: Please Do Not Ignore This Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11 The damage to the kidneys can often be caused by the use of various drugs, so we tried to classify them today and reveal the top ten, at least according to types: antibiotic, analgesic, etc. These are the top 10 drugs which damage kidneys: 1. Antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin, vancomycin, methicillin, sulfonamides. 2. Analgesics, like acetaminophen, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID): ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, etc. 3. Antiviral drugs, such as indinavir and tenofovir, both used to treat HIV, and acyclovir (brand name Zovirax) which is used in the case of herpes infection. 4. Anticonvulsants, like trimethadione (brand name Tridione), used to treat seizures and other conditions, and phenytoin (brand name Dilantin). 5. COX-2 inhibitors, such as celecoxib (brand name Celebrex). Two drugs, rofecoxib (brand name Vioxx), and valdecoxib (brand name Bextra) have been withdrawn from the market due to cardiovascular toxicity. They fall into the special class of NSAID which were intended to be safer for the stomach, but pose the same threat as other NSAIDs for kidney damage. 6. Chemotherapy drugs, like quinine, interferons, cisplatin, pamidronate, carboplatin, tacrolimus, cyclosporine, mitomycin C, bevacizumab; and anti-thyroid drugs, like propylthiouracil, used in the treatment of an overactive thyroid. 7. High blood pressure drugs, including captopril (brand name Capoten). 8. Heartburn drugs of the proton pump inhibitor class, such as pantoprazole (brand name Protonix), omeprazole (brand name Prilosec), esomeprazole (brand names Nexium, Esotrex), lansoprazole (brand name Prevacid), and rabeprazole (brand names Rabecid, Aciphex). 9. Lithium, used in the treatment of bipolar disorders. 10. Rheumatoid arthritis drugs, such as infliximab (brand name Remicade); hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, used in the treatment of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus. ============================================ https://youtu.be/V79xcYXjtfQ Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11

Dr. Berg’s Digest Formula: https://shop.drberg.com/digest-formula-regular Dr. Berg talks about acid reflux symptoms and acid reflux treatment that can be used as a cure for acid reflux. What causes acid reflux : Dr. Berg explains the real cause of GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), acid reflux, heartburn and a simple fix. Believe it or not, GERD is not too much acid, yet not enough acid. This causes the value on the top of the stomach to stay open. In other words, the function of the stomach (pH) controls the structure (value closing). Normally the pH in the stomach needs to be between 1-3, and when it increases (becomes more alkaline), the stomach value no longer closes properly. In the later part of the video, Dr. Berg speaks about some of the acid reflux remedies to get acid reflux cure. These acid reflux treatment will get you a stomach relief and next time you have acid reflux symptoms you will know how to get rid of acid reflux.

Unless you must absolutely be on a proton pump inhibitor, it's best not to be on it - especially if you have gastroparesis like I do. Unfortunately, once you're on it, getting off them is hard because your body is used to the resistance they give. This equals rebound pain that can be worse than the original problem. Here is how I got off lansoprazole. Thanks for watching.

If you are having an ongoing battle with heartburn, acid reflux or GERD (not totally sure of the difference) like I was over the last few years, and wound up taking more Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid, etc. (acid blockers) than you care to, tune in! Acid blockers are NOT A CURE, they are just a short-term solution (contrary to what doctors may have led you to believe). Tune in to hear what I am hoping is a long-term solution that allows me to eat what I want without the problems of excess stomach acid. Who knows, it just might help you as well. Check with your doctor first though. :-) One last thing... I forgot to mention that a doctor I saw on the Dr. Oz show said that she recommends 2 mg of melatonin one hour before bedtime for her patients that suffer from acid reflux symptoms. Supposedly, this helps wean them from acid blocking drugs. According to Dr. Oz it will also help you sleep more soundly, as well as help with GERD symptoms WITHOUT stopping stomach acid production. Check out his website for more details, and TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR before trying it. Hope it helps! www,eformationqueen.com https://www.facebook.com/eFormationQueen

Long-term use of certain heartburn medications could lead to serious kidney damage, a new study shows. It looked at the use of "proton pump inhibitors," sold under brand names including Prevacid, Prilosec and Nexium. An estimated 15 million Americans use these medications regularly.

Check It Out Here - http://tiny.cc/heartburn-remedy Nexium Side Effects - In this video, we discuss the effects of Nexium, which include both the short term side effects and long term health concerns. Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) often prescribed to treat heartburn and acid reflux, and more specifically, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). To provide relief, the drug effectively stops the stomach from producing acid. While this drug does have the ability to provide short term relief, it also has the potential to lead to long term health problems. Most people are familiar with the side effects that are displayed on the commercial and box label because, quite simply, this is what is advertised. These side effects of Nexium include headaches, nausea, diarrhea, dry mouth, stomach pain and constipation. In addition, there are some even more severe initial Nexium side effects: dizziness, uneven heart rate, seizures, choking, and cramping. However, what is less known about the side effects of Nexium is what it can do to your body a year, 2 years, or even longer down the road. Stomach acid can cause pain, hence acid reflux and why you are probably considering or already prescribed Nexium. However, stomach acid is a natural occurrence in the body. When you stop something in your body that is supposed to happen naturally, some nasty stuff can happen, especially if you take Nexium for too long (ie. more than 8 weeks). In 40% of people who take Nexium for more than 8 weeks, they actually become addicted. And if you do end up taking Nexium for a year or more, it can increase the chance of Osteporosis by 45% and the chance of dementia by 18%. That is just startling! In addition, with the lack of acid production, natural absorption of minerals is hindered, your stomach is more prone to infection and bacteria growth, which in turn, increases the chances of stomach cancer. Like most prescription drugs, Nexium obviously serves a purpose and can rightfully be prescribed by a doctor to treat your heartburn or acid reflux. However, please note, that Nexium just provides short term relief instead of a long term solution to prevent you from having those uncomfortable symptoms in the future. This is why, after doing our research, we recommend that you click the link at the top of the video description to learn about some more natural ways to provide a permanent cure to heartburn and acid reflux.

If you have taken Prilosec, Nexium or Prevacid, please listen to this important legal announcement. The Food and Drug Administration has issued several warnings to patients that are taking these types of drugs known as Proton Pump Inhibitors or PPI’s. According to the FDA, long-term use may cause problems with the body’s ability to absorb calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients. Patients who take these drugs for an extended period may be at risk of suffering kidney damage, bone fractures, heart attack and other serious side effects. Several studies have determined that there are potentially a lot of risks involved with the use of these types of over the counter acid reflux medication. In January 2016, a study found that PPI’s increase the risk of Chronic Kidney Disease by 20-50%. Damage to the kidneys may leave them unable to filter toxins from the bloodstream. Chronic kidney failure is not reversible, so any symptoms of kidney issues such as lack of urine production or fluid retention should immediately be reported to your physician. The FDA issued warnings in 2010 that PPI’s could lead to an increased risk of hip or spine fractures. Those receiving high doses for more than a year were at the greatest risk. The FDA also issued a safety alert that PPI usage may lead to low magnesium levels, which could lead to seizures, muscle spasm or an irregular heartbeat. If you or a loved one suffered kidney damage after using these drugs, learn your legal rights. You may be entitled to financial compensation. Call us right now for your free consultation.

Drs. Vaughan and Carlson discuss the topic of PPIs and Kidney disease. Are Prilosec, Nexium and other PPIs safe and what is the best way to use these medicines in consultation with your doctor? PPI Kidney Injury G:welcome and introduction of Dr. Mark Vaughan of the Auburn Medical Group YouTube Channel M: thanks Dr. Carlson. It's an honor to be on your YouTube channel. I look forward to the conversation we will share and the opportunity it presents for you, our respective subscribers, to learn about The facts behind the sensational headlines. G: there has been quite a bit of media coverage of an article in the February edition of the Journal of the American medical Association internal medicine. It is a study which suggests that a common drug to both of our practices can cause injury to patients’ kidneys. The class of drug is called proton pump inhibitors. Most of you will recognize the names Prilosec and Nexium as popular name brands from this class. Their function is to turn off the acid pump in the stomach to decrease injury from acid inside the digestive tract. These medicines are usually prescribed for patients who have either short-term or long-term overproduction of acid resulting in symptoms ranging from heartburn to stomach ulcers. Now that they are available over-the-counter without a prescription they are used by many patients without any consultation with a physician. M: The article reports on a small study done on data collected during the atherosclerosis risk in communities study which studied over 10 thousand subjects. The results were then replicated by analyzing records of over 240 thousand individuals. They found that patients who used proton pump inhibitor drugs had a significantly higher incidence of chronic kidney disease on a blood test compared to people who did not use these drugs. They also found that there was a significant increase in kidney disease when compared to people who used H2 antagonist drugs. The cutoff they used to delineate between people with and without chronic kidney disease was based on a lab value found on a blood test. There was no requirement that the patients have any symptoms or other noticeable effect on their health to be labeled as having kidney disease. It is expected that the vast majority of these patients will never suffer any significant ill effects apart from this number found on a lab test. G: but that does not give us license to take these drugs willy-nilly. They should still only be used when there is significant benefit over alternative treatments. The simplest is through diet. Many of the problems which respond to this type of medication can be better treated by reducing intake Of fatty foods, alcohol, spicy foods, and acidic foods. Symptoms can also be decreased by eating smaller quantities during meals and not lying down within two hours of eating. If symptoms only occur occasionally, say less than three times per week, occasional use of an over-the-counter antacid can resolve the symptoms. More persistent symptoms may be treated by a doctor using an over the counter H2 antagonist like Zantac. M: without physician supervision, these medicines really should only be taken for a short period, not exceeding two weeks. I will often use these medicines for a 30 day period followed by a recheck. Patients continuing to have symptoms after this treatment are referred to a gastroenterologist for endoscopy. The gastroenterologist will check for serious disorders which can even include cancer of the digestive tract. Most patients do not have a serious disorder and many end up doing best continuing on these medicines long-term. G: we hope this gives you a better understanding of the concerns surrounding the use of proton pump inhibitors and kidney disease. If you are taking these medications for longer than a couple weeks without the supervision of a physician we urge you to make an appointment to discuss it with your doctor. Please be sure to subscribe to my channel and use the card to visit Dr. Vaughan's Auburn Medical Grp channel where you can find over 100 videos on medical topics and demonstrating medical procedures. dr Vaughan, this was great. thanks for being a guest on my channel.

Heartburn medications taken by millions of people are under scrutiny following studies that reveal a risk for side effects, including kidney damage. "The risk is pretty low, but it's not zero," says Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist Dr. Ken DeVault. "So it's worth talking to your physician." The medications are called proton pump inhibitors, sold under brand names such as Prilosec, Nexium and Prevacid, and the generic forms, such as omeprazole, esomeprazole and lansoprazole. Dr. DeVault says, despite the risks, proton pump inhibitors are the best option for some patients with heartburn. However, he thinks the medications are over used by many people who could find alternatives. In this Mayo Clinic Minute, Dr. DeVault asks two important questions about proton pump inhibitors and offers other ideas for beating heartburn. Jeff Olsen reports.
