What makes Zantac a dangerous drug?

First introduced in 1981, Zantac became the world’s best-selling prescription drug by 1987. Zantac was marketed as an antacid used to treat heartburn and other stomach-related issues, including stomach ulcers. Zantac was then sold over the counter and manufactured by Sanofi, a French-based pharmaceutical company.

Since September 2019, however, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings about Zantac and other ranitidine-based drugs. Initially, the FDA issued an advisory in September 2019 that certain scientific studies had found that Zantac and other ranitidine-based drugs may have elevated levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a carcinogenic substance.

In response to the September 2019 FDA warning, many large stores – including CVS, Walmart and Walgreens – announced that same month they would no longer sell medications containing ranitidine, including Zantac. In October 2019, Sanofi voluntarily recalled Zantac from all stores in the United States and Canada.

Based on additional scientific studies, the FDA issued another warning in April 2020 to Sanofi to stop selling Zantac due to concerns about cancer caused by higher than normal levels of NDMA in certain Zantac users.

What type of cancer does Zantac (ranitidine) cause?

Numerous scientific studies continue to be conducted about the link between Zantac (ranitidine) and cancer. At this time, some of the types of cancer certain Zantac users have been diagnosed with may include:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Throat cancer

If you have been diagnosed with cancer and you have taken Zantac in the past, talk to an attorney. You may be eligible for financial compensation for your cancer treatment and other related expenses.

What are warning signs of health problems caused by Zantac?

Talk to your doctor right away if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Frequent nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Blood in bowel movements
  • Discolored urine
  • Loss of appetite

Make sure you take your symptoms seriously right from the start. Cancer caused by Zantac is a very serious medical and legal matter. Your health should be your top priority. An attorney can handle all the legal aspects of your case while you focus on your medical care and cancer treatment.

How much is my Zantac cancer lawsuit worth?

Every case is different. Some may be worth tens of thousands of dollars. Others may potentially be worth millions. You case could even end up being part of a class-action lawsuit against Sanofi.

The bottom line is all your cancer-related expenses should be considered when determining how much your Zantac cancer lawsuit is worth. These expenses may include:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Chemotherapy
  • Other cancer-related medical treatments
  • Surgical operations
  • Follow-up doctor’s appointments
  • Physical therapy
  • Replacement income during your cancer treatment
  • Lost future income if you cannot return to work
