What Are Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec and Zegerid?

Nexium (esomeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole), Prilosec (omeprazole) and Zegerid (omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate) are heartburn drugs known as proton pump inhibitors. Consumers take these reflux medications known as PPIs to treat severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms.

PPIs, the strongest heartburn drugs currently available, essentially halt gastric acid production in the stomach. PPIs are available in prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) formulations.

PPI Warning and Lawsuit Information

Consumers began filing PPI-induced injury claims and false advertising lawsuits in 2004. AstraZeneca, which manufactures Nexium and Prilosec, settled one class action lawsuit in 2013 for $20 million. And in 2015, the company settled kickback scheme allegations from the U.S. Justice Department out of court for $7.9 million. Thousands of individual kidney injury claims are still pending against Zegerid’s manufacturer, Bayer, and Pfizer, the company that makes Prevacid.
