Zantac And Its Generics Have Been Recalled By The FDA

You assume that the drug has been thoroughly vetted before you buy it over-the-counter. It is unlikely that it will cause cancer. More of these drugs are being called carcinogenic. Zantac (ranitidine) is one of the latest drugs under scrutiny.

Zantac and the generic versions were initially labeled as dangerous by Food and Drug Administration. They were then recalled in March 2020. The drug, which was available in both over-the-counter and stronger prescription-only versions, can be contaminated with N-nitrosodimethylamine (commonly called NDMA).

NDMA is a probable cause of cancer:

Zantac was often recommended to people with heartburn. Doctors also prescribe it to treat stomach ulcers and prevent them from developing. Zantac can be contaminated with NDMA. This compound was created to make rocket fuel. A study found that NDMA is extremely toxic and causes cancer in nearly all animals. Experts do not believe the drug is a health risk to humans. There are not many human studies. The agency continues to investigate the health risks, and there are worrying trends.

Zantac has been associated with a variety of cancers, including:

  • Colorectal
  • Bladder
  • Esophageal
  • Kidney
  • Intestinal
  • Liver
  • Pancreatic
  • Ovarian
  • Stomach
  • Uterine
  • Testicular
