Proton pump inhibitors, or PPIs, are frequently used to control the production of gastric acid. However, in recent studies, PPIs have been shown to increase the risk of kidney problems, including chronic kidney disease and organ failure, with regular use. Certain studies have linked PPIs with decreased cognitive function as well, especially in women over the age of 75.
If you or a loved one suffered harm as a result of taking PPIs, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and other associated losses.
