Why are Zantac Cancer Lawsuits Being Filed?

Because of Zantac’s link to cancer, in April 2020 the FDA issued a statement that stated all prescriptions must be taken from the market immediately, including any over the counter medications. The FDA discovered that the dangers Zantac causes would increase in a patient over time. In the FDA statement, it also said that NDMA is a probable human carcinogen (meaning that it causes cancer). Since NDMA is found in Zantac, this puts all the consumers who took Zantac at a very high risk for developing cancer. There had been warnings out regarding Zantac dating all the way back to 2019.

Zantac and Generic Ranitidine Causes Cancer

Zantac, which also is known as Ranitidine, can go by several different names. While the most commonly known is Zantac, there are also many different types of generic brands that a person might have taken. These include:

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

Before the FDA announcement was issued, there had been companies who knew that Zantac had ties to cancer. Warnings against ranitidine were being sent out all the way back to 2019. Many of these companies had made recalls even before there was any type of FDA announcement. 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

The Serious Side Effects of Zantac

Some even more serious side effects that the FDA had received from consumers, from 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)

In over 8,000 cases, colorectal cancer was the most common reported side effect that the FDA received. Renal cancer was reported in around 6,000 cases, while bladder cancer had been reported with nearly 5,000 cases. All the consumers who took Zantac had taken this drug in good faith, believing that the medication would be safe in treating the medical issues they had including stomach ulcers, acid reflux, and heartburn. Zantac (Ranitidine) is designed as an anti-ulcer medicine and is supposed to block production of gastric acid inside of the body, and also to help treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Unfortunately, these companies had failed to make any consumers aware their product had any risks or links to cancer. Because of this, many lawsuits have been flooding in against the manufacturer, Sanofi.
