Nexium And Prilosec Causing Massive Health Problems, Including Kidney Failure – The Ring Of Fire


I understand you’re working on a new legal
project regarding heartburn medication, something that is probably near and dear to at least
ten or twenty percent of Americans. Can you tell us about it? Yeah, it’s an important case, Thom, because
you have … It’s Nexium and Prilosec … It’s what they either call proton pump inhibitors.
The reason this is such an important story is because so many people are taking this
product, and it causes kidney failure. The studies coming out are pointing towards kidney
failure, cardiac failure, magnesium depletion, which leads to bone deterioration. It’s this
whole list of things that the FDA should have known about, failed to do anything about … They’ve
had warnings about this now for about, easily five years, closer to six years, where they’ve
seen all of this coming. This something you can buy over the counter.
There’s no warning about any of this at all. The AstraZeneca is the company that produces
this product. They have their share of legal problems already, legal problems with doing
things and misrepresentation of the truth about the product they were selling, working
out sweetheart deals with doctors to promote their product … They’ve got a whole history
that they have to deal with up front, but the most important part of their history is
the way they’ve kept this from people, the truth from people. Seventy-five percent, Thom, seventy-five percent
of the people who take these products do not even need them, and the worst part about it,
once they start taking them, their system becomes dependent on it, and if they don’t
have the esophageal reflux or if they don’t have gastric problems to begin with, after
they take this product for a little while, they now have the problem. This is an awful,
awful development as far as a product goes. We deal with a lot of pharmaceutical cases.
The worst thing about this is it’s so … The use of this product is so vast. How did it get this far? I mean, I remember
when those were both prescription drugs a decade or more ago, and so the FDA first approved
them as prescription drugs, and then they approved them for over-the-counter sale. How
does it get this far without anybody realizing these apparently very serious problems that
you’re identifying? Yeah, the way they do it is people believe
that the FDA looks at this stuff. Honestly, if you ask ten people, “Does the FDA really
look at the testing? Do they do the testing themselves?” Those ten people will say, “Of
course they do!” Well, they don’t. They rely entirely on what’s represented to them by
the company that’s selling the product. Early on, the FDA had all the information that they
needed to understand that the proton pump inhibitors, as a class, whether it’s Prilosec,
Prevacid, several of them, Nexium, several of these products, they started seeing the
same problems. They started seeing people with broken bones because of magnesium depletion,
they started seeing the connection between cardiac events and this product, they started
seeing people actually getting worse, where they had gastral, intestinal problems that
became worse in taking this product, because their system became dependent on it. Do not take this product. Less than twenty-five
percent, Thom, of the people taking it, maybe twenty-five percent, really fall under the
class that might be able to take it occasionally, and maybe they need it occasionally, but this
case, you’re going to see, is going to develop really quickly because it’s so … The use
of this is so broad and the media has done nothing to tell this story because the blue
pill, the big advertisement of the blue pill, they make a lot of money advertising for companies
like AstraZeneca for product like Nexium. Wow, wow. Mike [Papantonio 00:03:43], that’s
astonishing. I know so many people who take those things. Mike Papantonio, thank you so
much for being with us tonight.

  1. The reasons these meds get new names is when a patent runs out and they go  generic the makers  put a piece of a skittle in or a nut and call it something new to jack up the price. One of the endless BS ripoffs the GOP is eager to see big pharma can continue

  2. If you have acid reflux and problems with gas all you need to do is change your diet.
    KOOLAID, SODA, PICKLES, LEMONS, ARTIFICIAL DRINKS, DRINKS AND GUM THAT USE ARTIFICIAL SWEETNERS was the culprits of my discomfort.
    once eliminated no more problems.
    Barbeque Sauce is another.

  3. I've been using Prilosec and Nexium for 27 years after almost bleeding to death as a result of life-long GERD. My paternal grandfather died of esophageal cancer. What would be a better alternative? My physician keeps close tabs on my liver and kidney function so far nom problems.

  5. seems like everyone i know takes that stuff, me included. I get it directly from India because it's cheaper than the OTC versions here in the US.

  6. Change your diet… eat more plant based whole food! You want to stop this acid reflux… change to plant based diet!

  8. Thom Hartmann is a joke. The guy advertises for Uber, one of the most destructive corporations on the planet. They undermine local control, fight and break local regulations, buy off politicians, make communities less safe, undermine wages for workers, try to force de-regulation on communities, etc. Uber basically tries to make the GOP free market paradigm seem "cool" because of tech. Hartmann advertises for them. He should be ashamed.

  10. http://www.slideshare.net/PAWANVKULKARNI/review-of-new-alerts-on-proton-pump-inhibitors-ppi-adverse-effects-2015-55022824 have a look at this ppt

  11. great. I've been on it for years. if I run out my astomach becomes an acid factory. and over the last year I've noticed pain in my right side, where I alredy had a lacerated kidney and damage years ago, and possibly little dark specks in my urine. What now dammit?

  12. If these ass hikes ever had TRUE reflux 8 hrs a day they wouldn't give a damn about the other issues. It's about quality of life and I'll decide what is right for me.

  13. prilosec nexium and zantac and proton pump inhibators (PPI) can cause kidney problem and cardiac arrest.

  14. I have been on prilosec since I was pregnant with my daughter in 2013 because my heartburn was so bad and since then the Dr has been peescribung them to me and I didn't find out that it can cause kidney disease kindney failure death and cardiac arrest until today and it scares me to death. I'm not gonna take them anymore. the fda failed to warn people about this and mine was a prescription.

  15. when you take a drug and you dont know what it is how can you complain?
    A person who takes this stuff forever is crazy.the problem is not the drug
    its that people go by the adds and buy the stuff.

  16. Save on Medicine!! Save over $150 a month on Prilosec Save even more on other drugs.
    NO membership required. I am not affiliated with this website I just wasted nearly $200 this month on medicine and wanted to share! https://www.generosity.com/medical-fundraising/social-experiment-cheaper-meds-for-everyone/x/12935804 please share on facebook and twitter thanks!

  17. I've been in pain every day since my body rejected Prilosec back in 2005 if I didn't believe in god id blow my brains out ,and with the health insurance like it is, if you want to call it health insurance maybe for the rich there's no help ill never take another pill as long as I live because the FDA or who ever don't regulate .

  18. I'm very glad we're finally beginning to find out the details and severity of the consequences of these medications. I don't find this so surprising as all too many drugs sold by Big Pharma have side effects far more severe and far reaching than advertised (especially psychotropic drugs, which often have debilitating side effects, and there's facts like: placebos are 80% as effective as antidepressants but without the horrible side effects). I have been on prilosec (omeprazole) off and on since I had my first ulcer and discovered I had a hiatal hernia in 1988. But, I did understand that there would very probably be serious repercussions in changing the composition and acidity of stomach acid. Just from a common sense perspective less acid in the stomach would logically cause less nutrient absorption from food, which would obviously have negative impacts on systems in the body requiring these nutrients (That's why I made it a habit of taking supplements of essential minerals). Stomach acid is also responsible for protecting the body and digestive tract from harmful bacteria, the less acid the more unwanted flora and fauna can slip through. Your stomach has more nerves than the brain and its importance is only now beginning to be understood and researched as being essential to mental and cognitive health. This is in large part because of the essential and crucial part bacteria in the gut play in our health (there are 10 beneficial flora and fauna to every one of our cells, and only 150 of the tens of thousand have been identified so far). These microscopic friends manufacture things like essential blood clotting agents, and recent research has identified 8 bacteria in out gut responsible for production of at least 95% of our serotonin. Changing the chemistry of of our bodies, especially in the stomach, and gut which is finally truly being understood as crucially essential to physical, cognitive and mental health, has the possibility of cascading and compounding negative changes throwing the body out of balance.

  19. I've been sick for ten years I used zantac then Prilosec one day my stomach just swelled up and never been the same I have irritable bowel syndrome do not take them you will regret it I promise.

  20. I had throat problems, doctor gave me omeprazole double dose for a month! When I stopped after the month I got horrible rebound and now I have chronic dyspepsia/indigestion which won't go away! Everyday I'm so burpy, can't stop burping and always feel gas coming up esophagus. Never had this before the omeprazole. Biggest mistake in my life was taking this drug.

  21. I've been on these tablets for 3 years for heart burn I now have Gerd and I have blood in urine without infection.
    i think these tablets gave damaged my insides !

  22. I ended up with serious bowel complications ( swollen blockage) and not sure if Prilosec had anything to do with it. I discovered that drinking a 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a glass of water works better for me than anything. Also, I guess there are health benefits from consuming baking soda. Tons of videos on Youtube about baking soda.

  23. I'm at high risk for Barrett's esophagus. Been taking Nexium for a decade and it improves my quality of life. I have blood work taken four times a year and all is in ship shape…this guy is an idiot. I'll take my chances with kidney disease when I'm 80 over esophagus cancer now…

    A little side bar here: You know what else causes high risk for developing kidney disease? Most blood pressure medications! Yep all the ACE inhibitors and ARBs are very harsh on the kidneys. I guess we should all have a heart attack or stroke tomorrow….

  24. Hello the best results that I have had was with the Heat Healer Plan (just google it) – without a doubt the no.1 idea i've tried.

  25. Changing your eating habits is much better idea real food nor process and prob probiotic drug companies do not care about your health it all the money

  26. The side effects of marijuana are even worse as a society rushing to legalize it will soon find out. Interestingly those side effects are missing from marijuana that can be eaten.

  27. thak you ,for warning got kineypain ,and i belive i have a cyst on my kidneywonder how much damage i have ,seems i wont take no more meds they hurt people

  28. Whenever these medications were 1st prescribed to me, I was told to take them daily for 21 days. They sort of stopped workung as well. Now this.

  29. I've been taking Prilosec everyday for going on 4yrs now and once I stopped my body went into withdrawls and it was similar to flu like symptoms, Fatigue, I could not sleep and I can honesty say it Was a nightmare. Drink small portions of Baking soda for acid reflux and it will help 100% stay away from Prilosec or anything similar to it….

  30. I've been taking Nexium 40mg daily for 5-years. Hiatal Hernia. Without it, in less than three days my acid reflux would get so bad I get all the symptons. Endoscopy run every year, blood tests twice a year, and nothing of the side effects mentioned apply to me. You have no idea how many alternative treatments I've tried; apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, cuachalalate, real honey, lemon juice, teas, oils, changing of eating habits, stress reducing practices… to name a few.

    Therefore, you must understand your argument doesn't apply to everybody, and certainly not for the vast majority of real patients, you are no doctor with no factual data.

    Please read here: https://www.webmd.com/heartburn-gerd/news/20151027/chronic-heartburn-drugs-tied-to-higher-risk-of-kidney-disease

    The relationship between kidney damage and these medications are most likely others than the Nexium.

  31. Here is how to stop taking the PPI. One tablespoon of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar to a 16 oz bottle of cold water. Taste like shit but slam it just the same. then pick up pro biotics and DGL at the vitamin shop . You may need some tums but one benefit is you will start to P like a camel within a few days . No heart Burn

  32. I had surgery to fix an open ulcer after surgery my doctor told me i need to take Nexium for the rest of my life and have been doing so for the past 2.5 months and recently started feeling a sharp pain under my rib cage when i breath and now i hear this news about what it can do to my kidney. Oh shit what is happening to me for listening to my doctor

  33. Tagament is IN THIS category. I took ,for several years. Tagament,. I NOW HAVE severe BONE DISEASE. NEXIUM,OMEPRAZOLE, ETC… I WOULD LOVE TO, SUE, EACH AND EVERY..DOCTOR AND COMPANY WHO MADE THESES PILLS..PEOPLE …WE MIGHT AS WELL HAVE..DR. MENGALA, FROM THE NAZI CAMPS , TREATING US! DO you think, President Trump or anyone who thinks they are somebody GETS THIS kind of…Shit? No!!!
