F.D.A. Warns Zantac Products Should Not Be Sold

Zantac products are known for treating heartburn but it has been found that they can actually cause other long-term health problems. It is especially concerning the findings that Zantac is linked to a potentially cancer-causing contaminant. This can be caused when the drug is stored for a long period of time.

Although progress has been made on removing the drug from shelves there are still other over-the-counter medications associated with Zantac. If you have suffered injuries related to Zantac you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

What The F.D.A. Says

The Food and Drug Administration asked companies to stop selling Zantac and other forms of the drug. Most companies and railers stopped selling the drugs in early 2020 but there may still be products out there. For those who still use the drug over the counter, you should stop use immediately and according to the F.D.A. dispose of any form of the medication you may have. If you are taking the prescription form of the medication you will first need to talk to your doctor before you stop treatment.

One caveat to this is that if you wish to file a personal injury claim you should not throw out the medication as this can be used as evidence to show that you are a victim of Zantac. We advise that you stop using the medication but do not throw out the pills or the packaging. If you still have any receipts or copies of prescriptions keep those as well. Bring all of this with you when you meet your Philadelphia personal injury attorney.

Zantac and Cancer

The alarm was sounded by an Online pharmacy named Valisure. They conducted their own investigation and found that there were high levels of NDMA. These levels were above the recommended daily limit of the F.D.A. which prompted the organization to begin an investigation into the drug.

Valisure found that under specific conditions NDMA was created which is a contaminant that can lead to cancer in some of the most extreme cases. They have continued their research into the long-term effects that the ranitidine molecule has. It is advised that if you had been taking the medicine to stop doing so. You should seek medical treatment and contact a Philadelphia personal injury attorney.
