Do I Have a Case if I Developed Cancer After Taking Zantac?
Zantac, or ranitidine, is a drug used to decrease the amount of acid in the stomach, thereby treating consumers suffering from heartburn. Zantac has been one of the most popular antacid drugs since the 1980s. However, recently it has been found that the manufacturer of this medication covered up a connection between the drug and the potential to develop cancer.
On September 13, 2019, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that they were investigating Zantac cancer risks after finding that the drug contained NDMA levels that are 3,000 times the FDA’s daily recommendation.
After concluding their investigation, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an immediate market withdrawal of Zantac products after determining the high levels of NDMA posed a risk to consumers. Prior to the Zantac recalls, manufacturers took generic versions of this drug off pharmacy shelves after finding high levels of NDMA in these products as well.
