Lawsuits against Zantac are flooding in because the drug itself has been proven to cause much harm to the patients who use it. As of April 1st, 2020, the FDA issued a statement stating that all Zantac manufacturers must withdraw all prescriptions immediately from the market. This also included any over the counter medications. It had been determined that the dangers Zantac were causing patients had also showed to be prone to increase over time. The FDA announcement also had stated that NDMA is a probable human carcinogen.  That means, it has the ability to cause cancer in any patient who may have used it.  Since NDMA is found in Zantac, this puts anyone and everyone who took the drug at a high risk for developing cancer. There have been warnings against Zantac put out by the FDA dating all the way back to 2019.

Prior to the FDA announcement regarding Zantac, many companies had put out multiple warnings regarding Ranitidine because they had known about the ties it had to cancer. Some of these were dated as far back as 2019. The recalls for Zantac had been issued by the following companies:

  • Sanofi
  • American Health Packaging
  • Amneal Pharmaceuticals
  • Aurobindo Pharma USA
  • Apotex Corp.
  • Appco Pharma

Many side effects have been reported to the FDA regarding Zantac, some of which date back to 2004. A few of these adverse effects the FDA have gotten reported were:

  • Colorectal cancer (#1 most common side effect that has been 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 reported side effect to the FDA was colorectal cancer, it had been found in over 6,000 patients. Bladder cancer had been found in close to 5,000 patients, and e

Most commonly reported has been Colorectal cancer which was found in over 6,000 patient cases. Bladder cancer was 2nd and was found in almost 5,000 cases. These patients and consumers who took Zantac took the drug in good faith, believing that it was a safe medication to use to treat their heartburn, acid reflux, or any stomach ulcers. Ranitidine (an anti-ulcer medicine) was designed to help in blocking gastric acid production throughout the body, and to help patients who suffer gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Unfortunately, the companies and manufacturers who make Zantac failed to make their consumers aware of any potential risk that their product had for developing serious injury, or cancer. Because of this, lawsuits have been pouring in against them.
