If you’ve taken Zantac (Ranitidine) and subsequently developed cancer, our assembled team of attorneys can help you get the justice and compensation you rightfully deserve. Our Zantac law firm has handled a growing number of lawsuits involving pharmaceutical toxins. They’ll fight to ensure you receive the maximum money damages possible. It’s time to hold the drug makers accountable for their blatant willingness to put profit before people’s health.
Antacid drugs are among some of the most commonly taken drugs in the USA. One of these drugs, Zantac (Ranitidine in its generic form), which is regularly taken by millions, has been recently identified as having a cancer-causing ingredient nearly 3,000 times more than the FDA’s recommended daily limit.
Growing evidence suggests that pharmaceutical company Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim, manufacturer of Zantac, allegedly concealed Zantac’s cancer link despite knowledge of its potential cancer-causing effects. Meanwhile the company generated sales of over $1 billion in profit.
Past users of Zantac are now filing Zantac lawsuits in order to hold Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim accountable for blatant disregard for the health of their consumers and endangering the lives of countless numbers of people.
On September 13, 2019, the FDA announced that it had been discovered that some Ranitidine medications contained N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The World Health Organization has classified NDMA as a ‘probable human carcinogen’ i.e. a substance that could cause cancer. On November 1, 2019, Novartis (via its generic division, Sandoz) and Apotex announced that they were recalling all generic ranitidine products they sell in the US.
Following the FDA news, on October 1, 2019, CVS and Walgreens announced they would be pulling Zantac and generic versions of ranitidine. The recall includes Zantac 150®, Zantac 150® Cool Mint, and Zantac 75®.
The FDA lists regular Zantac recall updates.
Zantac (Ranitidine), is a very popular medication that has been sold worldwide since the early 1980s. It is part of a group of drugs called histamine-2 blockers and is designed to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach.
It is commonly used to treat a number of common stomach acid-related issues including:
Dosage for Zantac ranges between 75 and 150 mg, while some patients may have taken a once daily Zantac 300 mg dosage. Zantac has been available both by prescription and over the counter (OTC) at lower doses, where it is commonly used as a treatment for heartburn.
Since the 1980’s there have been several studies that put forward the case that Zantac causes cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “NDMA is clearly carcinogenic. There is overwhelming evidence that NDMA is mutagenic and clastogenic.”
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also identified NDMA as belonging to a family of chemicals called N-Nitro-samines, which they describe as “potent carcinogens”.
Carcinogenic effects of NDMA exposure potentially include:
