Tulsa Zantac Lawyers

Warriors and Friends in Your Fight Against Negligent Drug Manufacturers

In September of 2019, an independent online pharmacy discovered a disturbing truth about Zantac. According to the Valisure Citizen Petition on Ranitidine, Zantac and its generic versions (ranitidine) contain “extremely high levels of N-Nitrososdimethylamine (NDMA).”

For context, NDMA is a probable human carcinogen, which means it is a substance that can cause cancer in human beings. Exposure to NDMA through Zantac and other ranitidine products has already led consumers to develop a variety of digestive tract cancers.

If you have taken Zantac for an extended period of time, your risk for cancer may be heightened. If you have already been diagnosed, please contact Richardson Richardson Boudreaux, PLLC immediately.

About Zantac

Zantac is a brand-named drug produced by Sanofi. It relies on the active ingredient, ranitidine, to relieve and prevent heartburn. Ranitidine is an H2 (histamine-2) blocker and prescription-level doses can also treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines.

Introduced in 1986, Zantac quickly garnered popularity and became one of the best-selling drugs in history. By 1988, it had become the first medication to surpass $1 billion in annual sales. Consumers and prescribers alike chose Zantac because they assumed it was safe.

Unfortunately, recent guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proves this is not the case. On April 1, 2020, the FDA asked Sanofi and all ranitidine manufacturers to withdraw their products from the market immediately and encouraged consumers to stop taking pills, tablets, and liquids.

If you have Zantac or other ranitidine medications at home, follow FDA instructions to safely dispose of them and do not buy more.

What Is NDMA?

N-Nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA is an environmental contaminant found in our water, grilled meats, dairy, vegetables, and other food products. In small doses, it is relatively harmless, but daily exposure exceeding 0.096 micrograms or 0.32 parts per million (ppm) can lead to an increased risk of cancer.

FDA testing revealed that some ranitidine products contained up to 0.86 micrograms of NDMA per tablet or oral dose and up to 2.85 ppm.

One or two doses every once in a while is unlikely to cause harm, but if you have taken Zantac regularly for 1 year or more or weekly for at least 6 months, please contact our Tulsa Zantac attorneys ASAP.

Filing a Lawsuit

Zantac cancer lawsuits are already underway in Oklahoma and other states. On January 3, 2020, a New Jersey woman filed a complaint alleging once a day Zantac use led to her esophageal cancer. In Florida, another woman sued drugmakers Sanofi, Pfizer, Boehringer Ingelheim, and GlaxoSmithKline because their ranitidine products allegedly caused her colon cancer.

Lawsuits are popping up all over the United States for related ailments, such as:

  • Rectal cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • And other diseases

Due to the growing number of suits filed in federal court, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation is considering a class action to consolidate claims.

If you are interested in joining a class-action lawsuit in Oklahoma, our firm can help.
