Antacid Cancer Lawsuit Information for South Carolina Residents
Residents of South Carolina 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 South Carolina 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 South Carolina drug stores including CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and Rite Aid. Countless people have unknowingly been subjected to a risk for antacid cancer in South Carolina 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 South Carolina and beyond of drug side effects. In the case of Zantac, ranitidine, Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium, manufacturers failed to warn federal regulators or South Carolina 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 South Carolina 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 South Carolina against the manufacturers. Filing an antacid lawsuit is the only means for a South Carolina resident to obtain compensation for suffering, damage, medical expenses and loss related to cancer caused by acid reflux medicine in South Carolina. In addition, filing a heartburn medicine lawsuit claim in South Carolina is the best method for South Carolina consumers to hold multinational pharmaceutical giants accountable for widespread unethical business practices.
