Ranitidine, commonly known by its brand name Zantac®, is one of the most frequently used medications of all time. Zantac®, which belongs to the H2 blocker class, can be obtained by prescription or over the counter and is used to treat heartburn.
Unfortunately, independent laboratory testing found that the amount of the cancer-causing chemical, N-Nitrososdimethylamine (NDMA), is 3,171 times greater in Zantac® than the FDA’s daily limit for intake. Despite its mass use, more evidence has begun to show that there is a linkage between the drug and various types of cancer including:
- Kidney Cancer
- Liver Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Stomach Cancer
- Intestinal Cancer
- Testicular Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Uterine Cancer
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer subsequent to taking Zantac®, it is important that you contact a knowledgeable and experienced Pennsylvania Zantac® Lawsuit Attorney right away. Call Freeburn Law for a free consultation at 717-777-7777.
Although it has not been officially recalled as it has in a number of other countries, U.S. pharmacies have started to voluntarily pull Zantac® and its generic counterparts from shelves in an effort to protect Americans from NDMA, what federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (ECPRA) categorized as “extremely hazardous.”
