Antacid Cancer Lawsuit Information for Maine Residents
Residents of Maine are becoming incresingly aware that heartburn and acid reflux medicines such as Prilosec, Zantac, Prevacid, Nexium and generic Zantac have been found to cause cancer. Available by prescription and over-the-counter in Maine and nationwide, antacids are used daily by millions of Americans. Cancer from heartburn medicines is the subject of ongoing FDA investigation, and many of these products are now subject to acid reflux drug recalls or have been pulled off the shelf in major Maine drug stores including CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and Rite Aid. Countless people have unknowingly been subjected to a risk for antacid cancer in Maine at no fault of their own.
Among the most popular drugs in the world, Prilosec, Zantac, ranitidine or generic Zantac, Nexium and Prevacid have yielded billions in revenue for multinational pharmaceutical corporations including Astra-Zeneca, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Procter & Gamble, Sanofi / Boerhringer Ingelheim, Sandoz / Novartis, and others. Pharmaceutical companies are responsible for conducting long-term safety studies and warning the public in Maine and beyond of drug side effects. In the case of Zantac, ranitidine, Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium, manufacturers failed to warn federal regulators or Maine consumers of the antacid cancer risk.
Now drugmakers face serious questions regarding their knowledge of the link between cancer and acid reflux medicine. Persons and the family members of persons in Maine who were diagnosed with stomach cancer, bladder cancer, or another similar type of cancer after taking these medications are filing heartburn medicine cancer lawsuits in Maine against the manufacturers. Filing an antacid lawsuit is the only means for a Maine resident to obtain compensation for suffering, damage, medical expenses and loss related to cancer caused by acid reflux medicine in Maine. In addition, filing a heartburn medicine lawsuit claim in Maine is the best method for Maine consumers to hold multinational pharmaceutical giants accountable for widespread unethical business practices.
