Zantac And Ranitidine Injury Claims

Zantac – the brand name for ranitidine – is a medication prescribed to treat stomach issues, including acid reflux. The popular drug was recently found to contain a carcinogenic compound linked to cancer.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac or a generic version such as Sanofi, you may be able to obtain financial compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.

At Nicolet Law office, S.C., we will fight aggressively to make things right for you and your family. Call 800-456-6956 today for a free, no-risk, no-obligation consultation.

Why Do Doctors Prescribe Zantac?

Zantac is an oral, over-the-counter medication used to decrease stomach acid, acid reflux and other gastrointestinal issues such as:

  • Stomach ulcers
  • Intestinal ulcers
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Reflux esophagitis
  • Post-operative peptic ulcers

The drug has been used to improve the lives of many, but unfortunately has been exposing them to a compound that is linked to cancer.

Why Is Zantac Linked To Cancer?

The specific offender is N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). Its presence in Zantac was discovered by an online pharmacy in New Hampshire that tests medications before dispensing them to buyers.

What Has Been Done To Rectify It?

The pharmacy that detected NDMA immediately notified the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the high levels they detected in Zantac and generic versions of the drug. Pharmacies including Walmart, CVS and Walgreens have suspended sales of Zantac and generic versions of ranitidine medications.

Despite pharmacies’ efforts to protect consumers from the potential damage Zantac can cause, the FDA and Zantac have failed to order a recall or take other corrective action. If you have been prescribed medication in recent years to treat gastrointestinal issues, it’s a good idea to check your medical records to determine if you were taking Zantac or another drug known to contain NDMA.

We’ll Help You Make Things Right

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac or a generic ranitidine medication, we can help you pursue a personal injury lawsuit to obtain the full financial compensation you’re entitled to.
