History

PPIs have been the subject of multiple safety concerns and warnings issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Warning released byb the AMA for PPI stating an increased risk of hip fracture after long-term in the elderly
A consumer warning was issued by the FDA concerning PPI medications, including Prevacid, regarding the increase in risk of bone fractures
– A high number of adverse events reported to the FDA indicated a possible link to birth defects of the heart when the medication was taken during pregnancy.
Another warning about PPI medications was issued by the FDA, indicating the Prevacid and other PPIs may increase the risk of neurological, muscular and cardiac effects due to low magnesium levels or hypomagnesemia.
One study showed that Prevacid and other PPIs may increase the risk of heart attack by as much as 21 percent, even when patients were otherwise healthy.
Journal of the American Medical Association published results of a study showing that people who were taking Prevacid, may have a risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) that is 20 to 50 percent higher those not taking the medication. The study indicated that taking the medication more than once daily or for longer periods of time, increased the risk.
- A new case study suggests that a skeletal muscle disorder known as rhabdomyolysis may be another potential side effect of proton pump inhibitors.
