Why are Zantac Cancer Lawsuits Being Filed?

Since Zantac has been proven to have a link to cancer, the FDA issued a statement in April 2020 stating that all manufacturers must withdraw all of their prescriptions and over the counter Zantac products immediately from the market. The FDA determined that over a period of time, the dangers of Zantac usage will increase. They had stated that NDMA is a probable human carcinogen (which means that it causes cancer). Since Zantac contains NDMA, this automatically puts anybody who took Zantac at a very high risk for developing cancer. There had been warnings put out against Zantac by the FDA dating back to 2019.

Zantac and Generic Ranitidine Can Cause Cancer in Patients

Ranitidine can be known by many different names. While the most common is Zantac, there are many other generic brands that somebody might have taken, including:

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

Even prior the the announcement issued by the FDA, companies had known Zantac had cancer ties. They had even put warnings regarding ranitidine out since 2019. Many of these companies made recalls before the FDA had issued that announcement, including:

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

The Serious Side Effects Caused by Zantac

Some of the other serious side effects that have been reported to the FDA, between the years 2004-2020 include:

  • Colorectal cancer (#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)

Colorectal cancer was reported as the #1 most common side effect to the FDA. It had been listed in over 8,000 adverse events. Renal cancer was reported in almost 6,000 patient cases, while bladder cancer had been found in almost 5,000 cases. Consumers took Zantac with good faith. They believed that it was a safe medication for them to treat their heartburn, acid reflux, or stomach ulcers. Ranitidine is made to be an anti-ulcer medication designed to block production of gastric acid and to help in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Unfortunately, the manufacturers and companies who were selling Zantac failed to make their consumers aware that their product had any potential to cause cancer. Because of this, lawsuits are flooding in against them.
