Zantac (Ranitidine) Cancer Risks

Zantac (ranitidine) is a widely used medication used to treat heartburn, intestinal ulcers, and other conditions of the stomach. Despite its years of popularity, Zantac has come under scrutiny over concerns that some ranitidine medications may contain N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which has been recognized as a cancer-causing substance by the FDA, EPA, and WHO.

According to the FDA’s ongoing investigation:

  • Levels of NDMA in some ranitidine drugs (including Zantac and generics) can increase over time, andwhen stored at higher-than-average temperatures. Rising NDMA can expose consumers to unacceptable levels of the contaminant.
  • Though people ingest NDMA in low levels naturally though their diet, those levels are considered safe and are not likely to cause cancer. However, sustained exposure to NDMA and exposure to higher levels of NDMA can increase cancer risks.

Ranitidine Cancer Investigation & Timeline

Here’s a brief timeline of events in the FDA’s investigation:

  • On September 13 2019, the FDA issued a statement about the potential risks associated with Zantac and ranitidine drugs, advising consumers to consider safety alternative prescription and OTC treatments.
  • In late September 2019, major pharmacy chains – including CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart – pulled Zantac and other ranitidine drugs from their stores.
  • In October 2019, Sanofi, the manufacturer of Zantac, voluntarily recalled Zantac OTC sold in the U.S. and Canada over “inconsistencies” in preliminary tests.
  • On April 1, 2020, the FDA issued its immediate request to remove Zantac and ranitidine drugs from the market.

According to the FDA, Zantac and all ranitidine medications will no longer be available for new or existing prescriptions, or as over-the-counter drugs. Any consumer using Zantac or ranitidine tablet or liquid medication is advised to immediately stop and dispose of remaining medication.

The FDA has advised consumers to use other drugs which studies have found do not containing NDMA, including Prilosec (omeprazole), Pepcid (famotidine), and Nexium (esomeprazole).

Do I Have a Zantac Lawsuit?

Though every case is different, you may have a potential claim against Sanofi (the maker of Zantac) or another pharmaceutical manufacturer (including Novartis, Apotex Corp., Sandoz, Inc., and GlaxoSmithKline) if:

  • You used an OTC or prescription Zantac or ranitidine medication; and
  • Developed cancer, including bladder, kidney, and stomach cancer.

Power Rogers is closely tracking ongoing investigations, and is actively reviewing potential cases from victims who have been diagnosed with cancer after using Zantac or ranitidine generic drugs, as well as families who believe their loved one’s cancer diagnosis and wrongful death may have been caused by contaminated Zantac or ranitidine medications.
