The Purple Pill
Since its inception, Nexium has continued to help patients living with erosive esophagitis disorders live a relatively normal lifestyle. Erosive esophagitis is a condition characterized by frequent severe heartburns that persist for prolonged periods of time.
Patients suffering from this condition are usually very uncomfortable especially after eating some types of foods. This condition is caused by the hydrochloric acid in the stomach flowing up the esophagus and therefore eating the cells lining it. The acid is used to digest food and therefore it is very useful inside the human body despite causing this disorder. Nexium in combination with antibiotics can be used to reduce the risk of getting duodenal ulcer recurrence.
Before subscribing to this drug you might want to think about it for a second time due to the serious side effects associated with Nexium use. These side effects have been so frequent and severe to patients that authorities have started looking for ways to control the drug usage.
Some of the side effects associated with the use of Nexium include frequent headaches, stomach pains, dry mouth, nausea, constipation and even deficiency of vitamin B 12 when the drug is used for prolonged periods of time. Some of the patients using Nexium have had to be hospitalized as a result of these severe side effects. This has caused them to spend extra cash and therefore incurring large losses on top of the money already spent on buying the drugs.
Why you need a lawyer
The massive costs incurred in treating the side effects of using this drug has made the patients of erosive esophagitis disorders consider the option of filling a Nexium lawsuit in order to seek for compensation from the manufacturers of these drug, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. This is especially necessary when there is sufficient evidence to link the drugs to the side effects experienced by the patients.
In order to ensure that the case will proceed to full trial and that AstraZeneca pharmaceuticals compensate the patient, it is imperative that they find a very experienced and charismatic lawyer who is will conversed to matters pertaining to the rights of drug users and the responsibilities of the manufacturers.
Such a lawyer will have to represent you in a court of law and prove to the judges why you need to be compensated as a result of Nexium’s side effects. In case the court grants your wishes, you stand to benefit a lot and therefore you need not worry about the costs incurred in filing such a case. A lawyer with good negotiating skills will also come in handy in helping you get the best deals in case the manufacturer of the drug agrees to settle the matter out of court.
Getting the best lawyer is not a 100% guarantee that the court will grant you he compensation you are seeking. Therefore, to maximize on the chances of being compensated there is a role that you also have to play. This includes giving the lawyer a good account of the events that led to you developing the symptoms and also accurate data on the dates that you started using and feeling the side effects.
