Proton Pump Inhibitors, or PPIs, are commonly used to treat certain stomach and esophageal problems, such as acid reflux. You may know them by brand names such as Prilosec, Prevacid or Nexium, also known as the “Purple Pill.” They are found in medicine cabinets across the nation, in fact, 15 million people in the United States alone are taking these drugs. PPIs are not only part a multi-billion dollar industry, but they also may be the culprit for serious health complications.

Manufacturers have spent billions of dollars marketing these PPIs- the most profitable drug in history. The Ruth Law Team is dedicated to keeping the public informed about the risks associated with using these drugs. For more than 40 years, we have been fighting to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable for the safety of consumers.
