What is Zantac?
Zantac is a popular over the counter (OTC) medication taken to prevent and treat heartburn, or acid reflux. This type of medication is also called an antacid. The generic substitute for Zantac is 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. The American College of Gastroenterology reports that 60 million Americans have heartburn at least once a month. Zantac (ranitidine) is used to treat:
- Heartburn (acid reflux)
- Peptic ulcer disease
- Stress-induced ulcers
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GAR)
- Zollinger-Ellison syndrome
- Hives (off label use)
- Anaphylaxis (secondary treatment)
In October 2019 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning stating Zantac and certain other generic formulations of ranitidine are contaminated with NDMA (N- nitrosodimethylamine) – a dangerous chemical that potentially causes cancer. This warning was followed by the FDA recall of Zantac and other ranitidine-containing medications. In April 2020, the FDA requested that all Zantac and ranitidine manufacturers stop selling the medication.
It is important to note that if you have heartburn or acid reflux there are other medications you can use. These medications do not include ranitidine and may be safer to use. Be sure to talk to your doctor about other medications that are available.
What is NDMA?
NDMA is a semi-volatile organic chemical known to be toxic and cancer-causing to the liver as well as other organs. NDMA is a “probable carcinogen” and exposure to large amounts of NDMA is thought to cause gastric or colorectal cancer, according to the World Health Organization.
The medication sold as Zantac (ranitidine) has been connected to high levels of the cancer-causing impurity NDMA and has been recalled. If you developed cancer following long-term use of this drug, you could have legal options for compensation and a Zantac lawyer can help.
