Zantac Lawsuit Update and Deadline – File Your Claim Here
Conditions such as GERD and heartburn are on the rise, thought to be worsened by our highly refined and fatty food diet that seems to be the mainstay in most developed countries. These conditions, left unchecked, can cause the erosion of the stomach wall as well as esophagus due to the overproduction of stomach acid, which in turn leads to ulcers over time. Ulcers are not only painful, but they can also cause cellular changes in the tissue affected, priming these tissues for the development of various gastric cancers. a pill known as ranitidine has been in use for quite some time now which makes it possible to get relief from heartburn and GERD. Commonly known as Zantac, this pill works by blocking the release of histamine in receptors found in the gut, which in turn prevents the production of acid. When this is successfully done, the ulcers that were beginning to form finally have a chance to heal, thereby reversing the damage already done as well as preventing further damage. While this pill sounds like something miraculous, it has its drawbacks, with one of them being that it has been shown to potentially lead to stomach cancer. If you took Zantac for many years and then went on to be diagnosed with stomach cancer, you may be eligible for compensation which will go a long way in helping you recover money damages, and we’re here to help with that.

Zantac and NDMA Exposure
Since the 1980s, Zantac has been shown to have something called NDMA, which is short for N-Nitrosodiumethylamine, an organic chemical that is both tasteless and odorless. This compound or chemical was surprisingly used as a component of rocket fuel in the past. NDMA is also found in negligible amounts in cured meats, tobacco, pesticides, shampoos and cleansers. NDMA has in several studies been shown to cause the growth of malignant tumors in numerous studies involving different animal species. In addition, there was a dose-dependent connection between the development of these cancers and their severity, meaning that the more NDMA a person had in their bodies, the more aggressive the cancer they developed.
Zantac Cancer Risk EXPOSED
A company known as Valisure back in 2019 found astonishingly high levels of NDMA in Zantac, something that was replicated by Emery Pharma. This led to the two Pharma testing companies to alert the FDA and other regulatory agencies regarding the fact that Zantac was shown to be carcinogenic to the order of 1,700 times with regard to exposure risk.
If you didn’t know about the Zantac cancer risk and are just finding out about it now, there’s no need to panic as medical consultation is the first thing you should do. Due to the chronic nature of GERD, it is vital that you speak with your doctor about Zantac alternatives.
The FDA recommends the use of the following over Zantac:
The following Zantac variations have been shown to have high levels of NDMA:
- Zantac 150 tablets
- Zantac Maximum Strength Cool Mint
- Zantac 150 Maximum Strength
- Zantac 75 tablets
- Wal-Zan 75
- Wal-Zan 150
NDMA exposure may cause the following symptoms
- Enlarged liver
- Diminished kidney, liver and lung functioning
- Abdominal cramping
NDMA and Liver Toxicity
It has also been shown that NDMA is very toxic to the liver, meaning that it may cause scarring of the liver or fibrosis which may be irreversible and limit the normal functioning of this important organ.
As of December 2021, the Zantac lawsuits that have been brought forward seem to be on the fast-track to litigation due to the fact that the Judge overseeing the class action lawsuit asking that 200 cases be consolidated, chosen randomly in order to determine their viability. The Judge will look at eight different types of cancers that are being alleged to have been caused by Zantac.
