Minnesota Zantac And Ranitidine Injury Claims

Ranitidine – better known by the brand name Zantac – has been prescribed to many people in Minnesota for the treatment of stomach disorders such as acid reflux. Unfortunately, it turns out the relief it provided to many people with stomach issues may have been too good to be true. The popular drug contains a carcinogenic compound that has been linked to cancer.

If you or a loved one in Minnesota has been diagnosed with cancer after taking ranitidine in Zantac or a generic such as Sanofi, you have the right to seek financial compensation for damages, including medical costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings and other damages. At Nicolet Law Office, we will be the strong advocate you need to make things right.

Why Is Zantac Prescribed?

Zantac is not prescribed; it is an over-the-counter medication primarily used by people who are experiencing stomach acid-based gastrointestinal issues, including:

  • Acid reflux
  • Reflux esophagitis
  • Excess stomach acid
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Intestinal ulcers
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease

The Link Between Zantac And Cancer

The carcinogenic compound that links ranitidine to cancer is N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The link was discovered by an online pharmacy that operates out of New Hampshire and conducts tests on medications before dispensing them to consumers. The FDA was immediately notified about the high levels of NDMA detected in Zantac and its generic counterparts. Since the discovery was made public, pharmacies such as Walgreens, CVS and Walmart have suspended the sale of Zantac and its generic versions in an effort to protect consumers.

Unfortunately, the FDA itself and the makers of Zantac failed to step up to the plate with a recall or other action until April 1, 2020. This failure could have allowed other unsuspecting Minnesotans to expose themselves to the carcinogen due to nothing more than a desire to alleviate stomach pains and other gastrointestinal distress.
