Zantac Patients Are Advised Not To Abuse Their New PPI Drugs

Zantac users have switched to Prilosec, Nexium, and other PPI drugs that may have dangerous side effects also

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - By now, everyone who was taking Zantac for treating heartburn and acid reflux is aware of the drug's recall over fears that patients have developed cancer. Thousands of users have filed lawsuits alleging that the drug has caused cancer of the stomach, bladder, colon, and many others. Storing Zantac in high temperatures may cause NDMA, a deadly carcinogen, to increase to dangerously high levels. The drug's interaction with stomach nitrites could also cause abnormalities. Zantac users are afraid they may have exposed themselves to carcinogenic levels of NDMA by taking the manufacturer's recommended dosage of the product or having exceeded the dosage. Lawsuits claim that records show Sanofi knew for decades that elevated levels of NDMA in Zantac might cause cancer, and the company may have lied to the FDA and failed to warn consumers. Doctors recommended patients switch from the H2 antagonist drug to a different type of heartburn medication called protein pump inhibitors (PPI)s for relief of their painful condition when the FDA recalled Zantac earlier in the year. Heartburn and acid reflux pain is not to be taken lightly as stomach acids that back up into the esophagus can result in irritation leading to cancer. All was thought to be well with switching drugs from H2s to PPIs, however, it looks like PPI drugs may have new and potentially severe health consequences of their own. It looks like PPI drugs Prilosec, Prilosec OTC, Zegerid, Prevacid, Protonix, Aciphex, Nexium, and Dexilantmay may cause brain damage if abused according to a doctor studying the side effects of Zantac alternative drugs.

Naveed Saleh, MD, MS, is warning people that they may have accidentally overdosed on popular over-the-counter heartburn medicines called protein-pump inhibitors (PPI) and are unaware of the severe side effects the drug can have. PPI drugs attach themselves to proteins and block the production of stomach acid for heartburn and acid reflux pain relief. Zantac heartburn medicine cancer lawsuit claims are being accepted for review before filing a lawsuit claim and attorneys handling Zantac cancer lawsuits offer a free no obligation consultation.

Dr. Saleh tells MD that patients have been abusing the dosing recommendations of PPI drugs. Dr. Saleh claims that taking PPI drugs can cause Vitamin B12 deficiency and lead to medical problems. According to a large study recently published in the JAMA Kaiser Permanente. "(the study) found that patients who took PPIs for two or more years were more likely to experience vitamin B12 deficiency, and doses of more than 1.5 pills per day were more strongly linked with the condition than doses of less than 0.75 pills per day. Untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to dementia, neurologic damage, anemia, and other complications."

You may qualify to file a claim against Sanofi and seek reimbursement for medical expenses, lost income, pain, and suffering, or any other related damages if you or a loved one have developed cancer of the stomach, bladder, breast, colon, esophageal, or another form of cancer and have used or abused Zantac for over one year.
