Zantac/Ranitidine Cancer Lawsuits

Since the beginning of 2020, many individuals have been looking at the possibility of filing Zantac claims for cancer. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demanded the eradication all Zantac/ranitidine drugs from the U.S. market in April 2020. (Ranitidine is also the general name used for Zantac items.)

The withdrawal happened after an investigation into the contaminant N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA could cause cancer in people, particularly at the highest levels over time.

The FDA found:

  • There was a high level of NDMA in the Zantac/ranitidine product.
  • NDMA will increase dramatically as time passes when stored at temperatures higher.
  • The more old a product of ranitidine is, the greater the levels of NDMA it may have.
  • In many instances, a product containing ranitidine may have higher levels of NDMA than what is acceptable according to FDA guidelines.

The FDA released their announcement with letters addressed to all manufacturers of ranitidine. It demanded the removal of ranitidine from the sale. The FDA advised those who use Zantac/ranitidine over-the-counter products to stop using them and not purchase them again.

Patients taking prescription drugs such as ranitidine must talk with their doctor about stopping the medication. Doctors can switch patients to other medications that do not carry the same NDMA dangers.
