Why are Zantac Cancer Lawsuits Being Filed?

Ever since Zantac was proven to be linked to cause cancer, in April 2020, the FDA issued out a statement telling all manufacturers they must withdraw all Zantac prescriptions, including over the counter products from the market immediately. It had been determined that the dangers of using Zantac will increase over a period of time. The statement said that NDMA is a probable human carcinogen (meaning that is causes cancer). Due to the fact that Zantac contains NDMA, this puts patients who have taken Zantac at a high risk for developing cancer. Warnings had been put out against ranitidine by the FDA since 2019.

Zantac and Generic Ranitidine Can Cause Cancer

Ranitidine goes by many different names. While the most commonly known is Zantac, there are many other different generic brands that a person may have taken, including:

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

Prior to the FDA issuing the statement, there had been companies who knew that Zantac had a tie to cancer. They had even put out warnings regarding ranitidine dating back since 2019. Many of these companies had made recalls long before the FDA made their 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

Other serious side effects that the FDA claimed have been reported between 2004-2020 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)
  • Gastric cancer
  • Hepatic cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer (pancreatic carcinoma)

The #1 most common side effect the FDA had reported was Colorectal cancer which was found in over 8,000 patients. Renal cancer was reported in almost 6,000 cases, and bladder cancer was found in around 5,000. The consumers who had taken Zantac took it with good faith, believing that it was a safe drug medication to treat their acid reflux, stomach ulcers, or heartburn. Zantac (Ranitidine) is made as an anti-ulcer medication and is designed to block the production of gastric acid, and is supposed to help in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). However, manufacturers and companies that were selling Zantac failed tot make consumers aware that their products had any potential to cause them cancer. Due to this, there have been lawsuits piling in against them.
