Former Zantac Users Have Few Options Left Other Than Adopting a Healthy Lifestyle

Zantac cancer victims continue to file lawsuits as alternative heartburn medicines may be just as dangerous

Friday, July 10, 2020 - Heartburn and acid reflux medication Zantac and others have been recalled under the suspicion that the antacid tablets contain above the daily intake level of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a deadly carcinogen. The US Food and Drug Administration has set the level of acceptable NDMA at 96 nanograms (ng) per tablet but online drug testing pharmacy Valisure found levels thousands of times greater. Hundreds of former Zantac users have hired Zantac Cancer Lawyers to file claims alleging that ingesting Zantac regularly over several years led to their cancer. Stomach cancer, bladder, intestinal, prostate, breast, and esophageal cancer are just some of alleged cancer that has been caused by Zantac.

The most recent lawsuit was filed in United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on June 17 by plaintiff Aaron Hayden. According to About Lawsuits, "the plaintiff regularly took Zantac from 2014 until the end of 2017, indicating that the exposure to NDMA from Zantac was the direct cause of his bladder cancer diagnosis." Lawsuits against Sanofi, the manufacturer of Zantac, claim that the company knew or should have known of the risks that carcinogenic levels of NDMA could develop and chose not to inform consumers, and instead pocketed billions of dollars in profits each year from sales of the world's best-selling antacid medicine.

Legal experts think that tens of thousands of cancer-sufferers will come forward in the next several months and hire a Zantac Cancer Lawyer to file a claim against Sanofi and others. In addition to Zantac heartburn and acid reflux medication, certain diabetes drugs called metformin has also been recalled for similar reasons, prompting Valisure CEO David Light to call the drug recalls only the tip of the iceberg. Light feels that consumer confidence could be shaken by the FDA's inability to monitor drug production overseas in countries like China. The FDA fears that so many types of medications could have elevated levels of NDMA that to test and recall more of them could lead to shortages and patients being unable to get their necessary prescription medication.

The Zantac recall has already had an impact on heartburn and acid reflux sufferers who were advised by the FDA to switch to drugs like Prilosec that have not tested positive for high levels of NDMA. Prilosec omeprazole, (Pepcid), cimetidine (Tagamet), esomeprazole (Nexium), lansoprazole (Prevacid), or (Prilosec) are all suspected, however, of increasing one's chance of contracting Covid-19 as these drugs are protein pump inhibitors (PPI). PPIs work by permanently blocking specific enzymes from secreting acid into the stomach. A recent study reported by Time Magazine quoted the study's director Dr. Brennan Spiegel that he was not surprised that there is a connection between PPI drugs and cases of the Coronavirus because, "(PPIs) drugs reduce stomach acid, and acid is one way the body kills off potentially harmful bacteria and viruses." Zantac users left in the lurch without a safe drug to switch to are urged to consider making more healthy lifestyle decisions and giving up drinking caffeine or eating spicy foods.
