Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Heartburn drugs of the proton pump inhibitor class are the ones considered to have a higher risk of kidney damage, according to recent reports.

Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium are some brands that have been mentioned.

There are some other risks too, you can read them here: http://www.empowher.com/heartburn-gerd/content/over-prescribed-heartburn-meds-cause-long-term-side-effects-get-natural-relie
