What is Zantac?
Zantac is one of the most popular over-the-counter (OTC) medicines for preventing and treating heartburn, sometimes called acid reflux. These medications are sometimes called antacids. The generic substitute for Zantac is called ranitidine.
Zantac and other antacids work by reducing the production of acid in the stomach.
Heartburn, or acid reflux, is one of the most common medical conditions in the United States. According to the American College of Gastroenterology, 60 million Americans report having heartburn at least once per month.
Zantac (ranitidine) is frequently used to treat conditions and diseases such as:
- Heartburn (acid reflux)
- Peptic ulcer disease
- Stress-induced ulcers
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Zollinger-Ellison syndrome
- Hives (off-label usage)
- Anaphylaxis (secondary treatment)
Ranitidine (the generic equivalent of Zantac) has been listed on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, and as of 2016 was the 50th most prescribed medication in the United States.
Zantac is available over-the-counter (without a prescription) in pharmacies across the United States. Zantac lawsuits may apply to generic ranitidine prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well.
Does Zantac Cause Cancer?
In October 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning that Zantac and certain generic formulations of ranitidine are contaminated with NDMA — a dangerous chemical that can potentially cause cancer.
The warning was followed by an FDA recall of Zantac and other ranitidine-containing medications.
NDMA stands for N-nitrosodimethylamine. NDMA is a semi-volatile organic chemical that is known to be toxic to the liver, among other organs. It is also believed to be cancer-causing in humans. In fact, NDMA is used to create cancer in rats in lab testing.
According to the FDA:
“NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer) based on results from laboratory tests.”

“I’m Taking Zantac. What Should I Do?”
The FDA has issued an urgent warning and recall for Zantac and other ranitidine-containing medications. It has also ordered Zantac and ranitidine manufacturers to immediately stop selling the drug.
Patients are advised that Zantac and generic ranitidine medications may be contaminated with NDMA, which can potentially cause cancer.
Those taking prescription Zantac are encouraged to consult with their doctor and consider Zantac alternatives.
The FDA also advises patients who are taking over-the-counter Zantac to immediately stop taking the medication and seek alternatives, as well.
Walgreens and CVS pharmacies are also offering concerned patients a full refund for returning their Zantac medication.
