Zantac was used by millions of people to treat acid reflux. It was prescribed and recommended by doctors and sold over-the-counter for decades.  Zantac 150mg and Zantac 300mg, also called ranitidine, decreases stomach acid by blocking histamine receptors in the stomach. It is sometimes referred to as an H2 blocker.  It was used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other related conditions that caused heartburn.

Lab testing revealed that ranitidine contained high levels of known cancer causing chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), levels that can increase with prolonged use over time. According to the FDA, the maximum safe level of daily NDMA exposure is 96 ng. However, one Zantac pill can contain thousands of times the maximum recommended daily limit of NDMA.

In April 2020, the Food and Drug Administration recommended that all stores immediately pull Zantac/ranitidine from the shelves. It also recommends that consumers stop taking Zantac and ranitidine, and turn to antacids that do not contain NDMA.  Zantac was marketed as Zantac, Zantac 75, Zantac Efferdose, Zantac injection, and Zantac Syrup.

If you or a loved one have taken Zantac and developed cancer, you should consult an attorney to understand your legal options.  The Buchanan Law Firm can help and provides free consultations for Zantac injuries.  Call 505-900-3559.
