Prilosec Linked to Kidney Disease
Prilosec belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPI) that decrease the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Prilosec was created by AstraZeneca in 1979 and is often used to help treat symptoms of heartburn.
However, several studies have shown that prolonged use of Prilosec and other PPIs may increase a person’s risk of kidney disease and kidney failure.
In a recent PPI study, researchers analyzed patients who developed chronic kidney disease between 2001 and 2008. Researchers found that nearly one in four patients who reported kidney damage during this time were on some time of PPI.
In February 2016, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published the results of a large study that linked Prilosec to kidney disease. Researchers conducting the study analyzed medical records of more than 10,000 patients, half of whom were prescribed Prilosec or other PPI medications daily and half of whom were not taking PPI drugs.
By the end of the study, researchers determined that patients taking Prilosec or other PPIs had a 20 to 50 percent greater chance of developing chronic kidney disease than those who had not taken the drugs.
Although researchers were not able to find a direct cause-and-effect relationship with PPIs and kidney disease, the study indicates that a greater risk of chronic kidney disease is associated with long-term use of PPI medications.

Symptoms of Kidney Disease
Chronic kidney disease is a condition characterized by a gradual loss of kidney function over time. Chronic disease of the kidneys occurs after the organs have suffered long-term damage and are no longer able to filter toxins from the bloodstream.
Symptoms of chronic kidney disease include:
- Swelling in the legs, ankles or feet
- A buildup of fluid in the lungs
- Heartbeat abnormalities
- High blood pressure
- Electrolyte imbalances
- Nausea, vomiting or loss of appetite
- Difficulty urinating
- Extreme fatigue
If you or a loved one has experienced any of the above symptoms after taking Prilosec or Prilosec OTC, you should report your symptoms to a medical professional as soon as possible. Chronic kidney failure is progressive and will worsen over time, so it is important to seek medical attention promptly.

- Prilosec and Nexium are defective and unreasonably dangerous
- The manufacturers were negligent in the production of the drug
- The makers of Prilosec and Nexium failed to adequately test the medications
