Why Do Doctors Prescribe Zantac?

Zantac is an oral, over-the-counter medication used to decrease stomach acid, acid reflux and other gastrointestinal issues such as:

  • Stomach ulcers
  • Intestinal ulcers
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Reflux esophagitis
  • Post-operative peptic ulcers

The drug has been used to improve the lives of many patients in Wisconsin and around the nation but unfortunately has been exposing them to a compound that is linked to cancer.

Why Is Zantac Linked To Cancer?

The specific offender is N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). Its presence in Zantac was discovered by an online pharmacy in New Hampshire that tests medications before dispensing them to buyers.

What Has Been Done To Rectify It?

The pharmacy that detected NDMA immediately notified the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the high levels they detected in Zantac and generic versions of the drug. Pharmacies, including Walmart, CVS and Walgreens, then suspended sales of Zantac and generic versions of ranitidine medications.

Despite pharmacies’ efforts to protect consumers from the potential damage Zantac can cause, the FDA and Zantac failed to order a recall or take other corrective action until April 1, 2020. If you have been prescribed medication in recent years to treat gastrointestinal issues, it’s a good idea to check your medical records to determine if you were taking Zantac or another drug known to contain NDMA.
