Over the Counter Heartburn Drugs with Serious Side Effects

Nexium and Prilosec, two brand name over the counter heartburn drugs, have recently been discovered to have unexpected dangerous side effects. Both of these drugs are proton pump inhibiting, meaning that they work to reduce the production of acid in the body. Proton Pump Inhibitors such as these are used for a variety of reasons including ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. They are also frequently the first types of medication which doctors consider prescribing to treat heart burn.

Nexium and Prilosec have now been associated with chronic kidney disease, kidney failure, interstitial nephritis, renal failure, birth defects, and heart attacks.

While many are eager to turn to these drugs for heartburn, doctors suggest that sometimes a solution can be reached without medication. Weight loss and avoiding precipitating foods are often a remedy. Always be sure to consider the risks and benefits of taking heartburn medication and discuss your options with a health professional.

If you have taken either of these drugs, beware of the symptoms of chronic kidney disease, heart attack, or other dangerous side effects.

Symptoms of Chromic Kidney Disease include:
  • Edema or swelling
  • Fluid in lungs
  • Arrhythmia
  • Hypertension
  • Lab electrolyte abnormalities
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Inability to urinate
  • Fatigue

Symptoms of Heart Attack include:
  • Sudden pain in chest, back, arm, abdomen or jaw
  • Feelings of pressure on chest
  • Cold, clammy skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Intense need to defecate
  • Sudden anxiety
  • Dizziness

Other Symptoms:
  • Dizziness
  • Pain in joints or muscles
  • Headache
  • Intestinal complaints including pain, nausea and diarrhea
  • Unpleasant aftertaste
  • Rash
  • Anxiety

If you have experienced any of these symptoms while taking Nexium or Prilosec, please contact your healthcare professional immediately. You may also be eligible to receive compensation for your suffering. Lawsuits are being filed around the country against the manufacturers of these drugs. With four decades of experience, the law firm of Rudolph F.X. Migliore, P.C. is positioned to help those who have been harmed by these medications. Our law office co-councils with a nationwide network of law firms, providing you with powerful representation and local, personal service.

Red Flags of the Latest IRS Scam

It has been estimated that Americans lose close to 350 million dollars annually due to phone scams. While this number is staggering, it’s not particularly shocking. Americans receive 40 to 50 unwanted calls per month. Between home phones and cell phones it’s easy to say we’re being bombarded by telemarketers, politicians, and most terrifyingly: scams.

What differentiates scams from one another? Why are some so convincing while others are obviously a hoax? It’s safe to say that they feed off of fear.

The latest scam that has resulted in endless calls to our office asking “is this real?” has been the IRS impersonation scam. More than 8,800 victims have fallen prey to this phone call, and have collectively lost almost 50 million dollars because of it.

Unfortunately, the scam has been taken a step further and has been released into the paper mail system and email services. The mail is disguised as a CP-2000 notice from the IRS demanding payment for a balance due in connection with the Affordable Care Act health coverage for 2014.

We’ve listed out some of the “red flags” associated with the IRS scam, in hopes to save you from the confusion and fear associated with these hoaxes.

Red Flag Warnings:
-Number of pages included in the form. An actual CP-2000 form is generally 6-7 pages in length, as opposed to the 2-3 page scams.
-P.O. Box address may ask for “Austin Processing Center”
-Victim is asked to make the check out to “I.R.S.” not “U.S. Treasury”
-Contact by phone, email, text, or social media
-Phone calls regarding owed taxes without first mailing a bill
-Phone calls to demand immediate payments
-Threats to bring in local law-enforcement

Please do not fall victim to these lies. If it sounds suspicious, there is a strong possibility that you’re being scammed. Don’t be afraid to hang up, and feel free to contact the IRS at 800-829-1040.

For any further questions on phone scams, please contact Rudy Migliore at (631) 543-3663.
