Ranitidine – Zantac Lawsuits


Zantac may have just been an over-the-counter heartburn remedy, but a recent FDA study has concluded that consuming the drug causes dangerous levels N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) to enter a person’s system, a chemical that can drastically increase the risk of a number of cancers.


Zantac has been a market leader amongst over-the-counter and prescription drugs in the US since it was introduced in 1981. It’s been widely prescribed for issues such as ulcers, acid reflux and even allergies in some instances.


But since the discovery of the increased risk of cancer resulting from taking Zantac regularly, the drug has been stripped from pharmacy shelves, and what was once one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the US is now unavailable for public consumption.


Ranitidine, the main active ingredient in Zantac and other equivalents, when in contact with water, creates a chemical reaction creating NDMA. Despite claims that the manufacturers had this information available to them during manufacturing, this information was withheld from consumers causing a danger to public health.


N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is a harmful chemical that wreaks havoc on a person’s body. With short term exposure leading to nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramps and long term exposure leading to a whole host of problems from liver failure, hepatitis and cancer. With such a dangerous chemical at play, the manufacturers of Zantac showed a blatant disregard for human life.


Some of the Zantac side effects include:


  • Bladder cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Intestinal cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Uterine cancer


If yourself, or a loved one, regularly took Zantac prior to being diagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to compensation for damages. Contact Pedram Law today to find out what you may be entitled to and how we can help you through this process.


If successful, you could be entitled to damages covering pain and suffering, loss of wages, reduced earning capacity as a result of the cancer, and any medical bills incurred as a result.
