Zantac and other ranitidine medications contain NDMA, which is a probable carcinogen. This means that prolonged or extensive exposure to NDMA may lead to cancer. Zantac was prescribed to treat ulcers. Many patients were exposed to large amounts of Zantac on a regular basis and could have inhaled dangerous levels of NDMA. Anyone who regularly used Zantac and a generic ranitidine form for over-the-counter heartburn relief could also have been exposed.
Side effects of Zantac-related NDMA can include:
- Bladder cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Prostate cancer
If you may have developed one of these cancers from Zantac, or the generic version get legal advice immediately. The liable party may be able to pay you compensation. This could cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, as well as other expenses.
