Zantac Lawsuits – Find Out Here What Your Case Is Worth
Zantac belongs to a class of medications called histamine blockers, used to treat heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. This is a condition with a number of causes, and if left untreated, can cause gastric and throat cancer. It is believed that a high fat diet with insufficient amounts of fiber and vegetables play a role in the development of GERD, and that medications such as Zantac help in limiting the amount of stomach acid produced, thereby alleviating it. However, the makers of this drug have recently come under fire for not disclosing the fact that Zantac was shown in studies to potentially cause certain cancers.

Zantac Lawsuits History
Zantac has been used for more than 40 years, and it is prescribed by doctors for hard-to-treat stomach conditions such as ulcers. In addition, it was first developed by GlaxoSmithKline’s European branch, and got approval to be prescribed in the U.S. in 1983. After an extensive marketing campaign in our country, notoriously known for its lax laws around medical marketing and drug approval, it went on to be one of the top most successful medications prescribed in the history of the country. The marketing pitches that led to its success were the insistence by the company that the drug was harmless and safe, which were later found out to be false.
Zantac and Cancer
The safety of Zantac was called to question when it was discovered that the drug had considerable amounts of a toxic chemical called NDMA, which has been shown to be a potential carcinogen, capable of causing stomach and bladder cancer, kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, intestinal cancer and lymphoma.
Zantac Cancer Lawsuit
In April of 2020, the FDA issued a Zantac recall in light of the NDMA findings, and said that the levels of this chemical were found to be unacceptably high. Zantac lawsuits are currently in the making, and can encompass claims such as wrongful death, defective drug injury claims, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and so much more. Typical Zantac lawsuit payouts are tiered, with the highest being 500,000 dependent on the extent of the injury.
