Zantac Users Should Hold On To or Mail Back Unused Portions Instead Of Physically Returning The Drug

During the COVID19 pandemic, the US Food and Drug Administration Recommends that Zantac patients do not physically return unused portions of the drug unless deemed safe to do so by state officials

Monday, April 20, 2020 - Individuals that are using Zantac and others over the counter and have unused portions are urged to continue to follow the directions of their state and local health authorities and not physically take the drug back to the retailer. Instead, follow the instructions on the website and the product's packaging. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, "The FDA recommends patients and consumers not take their medicines to a drug take-back location but follow the specific disposal instructions in the medication guide or package insert or follow the agency's recommended steps, which include ways to safely dispose of these medications at home," according to federal government health officials. Zantac antacid cancer lawsuit attorneys offer a no obligation free consultation and represent Americans nationwide.

The US Food and Drug Administration has requested that Sanofi immediately recall all over the counter and prescription packages of anti-heartburn and acid reflux medication under the brand name of Zantac and to halt manufacturing or selling the drug. According to the FDA, "All ranitidine products, including the oral liquid/syrup, will be withdrawn by their manufacturers and will not be available on the U.S. market. This action differs from past actions because this is the first time the FDA is requesting market withdrawal of all ranitidine products." The US drug watchdog agency has found excessively high levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a naturally occurring carcinogen given to laboratory test animals to induce cancer tumors for research, some as high as 30,000 nanograms per tablet due to NDMA increase over time and in higher temperature environments and that the drug presents a cancer risk to consumers. Men and women that have taken Zantac for decades and have developed stomach, bladder, esophageal, prostate and other cancers have consulted with Zantac cancer lawyers and have filed suit seeking real monetary damages.

In the wake of the FDA recall of Zantac and other heartburn and acid reflux drugs that may cause cancer, there are a host of other antacids that have not tested positive for the carcinogen and that the FDA currently considered safe. As of the time of this writing, the FDA has not found NDMA in famotidine (Pepcid), cimetidine (Tagamet), esomeprazole (Nexium), lansoprazole (Prevacid) or omeprazole (Prilosec). One should ask their physician for a recommendation based on their medical condition and history. In addition to Zantac, the FDA has recalled all ranitidine products from the U.S. market. Zantac patients should stop taking the drug and dispose of any unused portions of the product. Patients with severe heartburn or acid reflux may continue taking the medication provided they immediately consult their physician for other treatment recommendations. Improving one's diet is always a good idea as is exercising regularly to reduce stress. Heartburn generally occurs when "acid escape from the stomach into the esophagus. Common heartburn triggers are certain types of foods, the time you eat, and how fast you eat," according to
