If you or a loved one took PPIs for acid reflux and developed dementia you maybe eligible for compensation.
NEW RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT THERE IS A HIGHER RISK OF DEMENTIA FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN PPIS FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
Pump inhibitors (PPIs) primarily to treat conditions related to excess stomach acid. These conditions include heartburn, acid reflux, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a more severe form of acid reflux where food or liquid moves from the stomach to the esophagus. PPIs work by reducing stomach acid production, targeting the enzymes in the stomach lining responsible for producing acid. They are available both over the counter and by prescription, providing relief from the discomfort and potential damage caused by acid reflux and related conditions. In recent studies, however, there’s growing concern about the long-term use of PPIs. New research has unveiled a potential link between the prolonged use of these medications and an increased risk of dementia.
