Why are Zantac Cancer Lawsuits Being Filed?

Due to the fact Zantac has been shown to have a link to cancer, the FDA issued a statement in April 2020 saying that all prescriptions must be immediately removed from market. These also included any over the counter medications. It was discovered by the FDA that Zantac’s dangers would increase in a patient over a period of time. In the statement issued, it had said that NDMA is a probable human carcinogen, which means it causes cancer. Considering NDMA is found in Zantac, this puts everybody who had taken Zantac at a high risk for developing cancer. Since 2019, the FDA had been putting warnings out regarding Ranitidine.

Zantac and Generic Ranitidine Can Cause Cancer

Zantac (Ranitidine) goes by many different names. While most commonly known by Zantac, there are also several different generic brands of Zantac that a patient may have taken. These include, but are not limited to:

  • 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)
  • CVS Health Acid Reducer (ranitidine)
  • Acid Control (ranitidine)
  • Equate Ranitidine Tablets

Long before there was announcement issued by the FDA, there were companies who had known Zantac had ties to cause cancer. There were warnings against Zantac dating back to 2019. A lot of these companies made recalls prior to the FDA announcement. Some of these companies include:

  • 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
  • Sandoz
  • Sanofi

Serious Side Effects of Zantac

Some of the more serious side effects the FDA had received from consumers, from the time period of 2004-2020, include:

  • Colorectal cancer (the #1 most common side effect that was 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 FDA received over 8,000 adverse events of colorectal cancer, which was the #1 most common side effect of Zantac. In around 6,000 cases was renal cancer, and bladder cancer was reported in nearly 5,000 cases. Every consumer who had taken Zantac took the drug in good faith. The people who took Zantac believed that it was a safe medication for them to help their health issues including acid reflux, stomach ulcers, and also heartburn. Zantac (Ranitidine) was designed as an anti-ulcer medicine and to help in blocking production of the gastric acid inside the body, as well as to help in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). However, the fact these companies failed to make their consumers aware that their product had any type of risk for developing cancer, lawsuits have been flooding in.
