Zantac is a very popular anti-acid medication that has been on the market since the early 1980s. Zantac is an over the counter drug and is also given by prescription. Consumers commonly use Zantac for acid reflux, heartburn and a host of other stomach, throat and gastrointestinal issues.
Some people use Zantac for allergies to supplement their treatment programs.
Since the 1980s numerous studies had demonstrated a link between NDMA in Zantac and cancer. Mounting evidence also allegedly shows that SANOFI and BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM, the big pharmaceutical companies that manufacture Zantac (ranitidine Hydrochloride), concealed the Zantac cancer link from millions of people who took the drug for heartburn, gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), sour stomach, Barrett's esophagus, acid reflux, and other issues.
On April 1, 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration announced that it is requesting manufacturers to withdraw all Zantac and generic Zantac OTC ranitidine drugs from the market effective immediately. The FDA determined that in N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in some ranitidine medication increases over time when stored at a higher than room temperature and may result in consumer exposure to unacceptable risk.
The FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the World Health Organization (WHO) all classified NDMA as a cancer-causing substance.
