zantac adverse events

If you are a resident of Florida, and have been recently diagnosed with cancer after taking the drug Zantac, you are not alone. Zantac (ranitidine) has shown to have a link to causing cancer.

Because of the danger Zantac has been proven to show, the FDA issued a statement on April 1,2020 saying that all manufacturers of Zantac were to withdraw all prescriptions, as well as any over the counter Zantac products from the market immediately. It was determined that dangers involved with using Zantac were shown to increase over a period of time. In the announcement, it was also stated that NDMA is a probable human carcinogen, meaning it has the ability to cause cancer in those who use it. Since NDMA is one of the ingredients of Zantac, this puts those who have used it at a high risk for developing cancer. Since 2019, the FDA had been putting warnings out against Zantac.


While Ranitidine can go by many different names, the most commonly known is Zantac. However, there are alot of  other generic brands out there that a person might have taken, including:

  • Zantac 75 Tablets
  • Zantac 150 Tablets
  • Zantac 150 Maximum Strength
  • Zantac 150 Maximum Strength Cool Mint
  • Wal-Zan 75
  • Wal-Zan 150
  • Equate Ranitidine Tablets
  • Acid Control (ranitidine)
  • CVS Health Acid Reducer (ranitidine)
  • Heartburn Relieve (ranitidine)

Before the FDA had even issued their announcement regarding Zantac, companies had known the risks of Zantac being tied to cancer. Many warnings regarding Ranitidine had been put out there as far back as 2019. Prior to the FDA announcement in 2020, there had been recalls made by several companies, including:

  • American Health Packaging
  • Amneal Pharmaceuticals
  • Aurobindo Pharma USA
  • Apotex Corp.
  • Appco Pharma
  • Denton Pharma (dba Northwind Pharmaceuticals)
  • Sanofi
  • Sandoz
  • Golden State Medical Supply
  • Reddy’s Laboratories
  • GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)
  • Glenmark Pharmaceuticals
  • Precision Dose
  • Novitium Pharma
  • Lannett Company
  • Perrigo Company


Dating as far back as 2004, adverse events have been reported to the FDA regarding Zantac. Some of these side effects that may have been caused by taking Zantac include, but are not limited to:

  • Colorectal cancer (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)
  • Pancreatic cancer (pancreatic carcinoma)
  • Hepatic cancer
  • Gastric cancer

The most common side effect reported to the FDA, with over 8,000 cases was colorectal cancer. Bladder cancer has been reported in almost 5,000 cases, and renal cancer was reported in nearly 6,000 cases. Consumers of Zantac had taken the drug in good faith, thinking that it was a safe medication to help in treating their acid reflux, heartburn, or stomach ulcers. Ranitidine is an anti-ulcer medication that is designed to block the gastric acid production, and to help treat patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Unfortunately, the companies and manufacturers who were selling Zantac, did not make their consumers aware that their product had any cancer-causing potential, which has resulted in many lawsuits being filed against them.
