Why are Zantac Cancer Lawsuits being filed?

Due to Zantac showing its link to cancer, the FDA issued a statement in April of 2020 stating that manufacturers must withdraw Zantac, and any other prescriptions from the market right away. In the statement, it also included any over the counter prescriptions. The FDA discovered the dangers of Zantac had the possibility to increase in a patient over a certain period of time. Due to the fact NDMA is found in Zantac, this puts patients who took it at a way higher risk for developing cancer. Warnings regarding Zantac had been placed by the FDA dating back to 2019.

Before the statement had been issued by the FDA, a lot of companies had known Zantac had a cancer causing ability for the consumer. Warnings had been placed against Ranitidine that dated back to 2019. Many of these companies had made recalls prior to the FDA issued a statement, including:

  • Apotex Corp.

  • Denton Pharma (dba Northwind Pharmaceuticals)

Other Serious Side Effects of Zantac

Between the years 2004-2020, there had been many other side effects that were reported to the FDA that had to do with Zantac. These included, but were not limited to:

  • Colorectal cancer (was the #1 most common side effect reported to the FDA)
  • Chronic kidney disease (#4)
  • Renal cancer (#5)
  • Bladder cancer (#11)
  • Acute kidney injury (#14)
  • Renal failure (#15)
  • Prostate cancer (#19)
  • Oesophageal carcinoma (#21)
  • Gastric cancer
  • Hepatic cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer (pancreatic carcinoma)

The most commonly reported cancer that had been found in over 8,000 cases was colorectal cancer. In over 6,000 cases was renal cancer, and in over 5,000 cases was bladder cancer. Every patient who had taken Zantac took it with good faith. They believed that the drug was safe for them to help treat their health issues such asa heartburn, acid reflux, and/or stomach ulcers. Zantac (Ranitidine) was created as an anti-ulcer medicine made to block the gastric acid production in a patient. However, all the manufactures and companies who knew Zantac had a possibility of causing a patient cancer never made it known to any of their customers. Because fo this, many lawsuits are being filed agains them.
