Updates on Zantac Class-Action Lawsuits
Hundreds of people have filed Zantac class-action lawsuits against the drug’s manufacturers (GlaxoSmithKline LLC, Sanofi-Aventis, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. or Pfizer Inc.), claiming the companies didn’t warn them about the presence of NDMA in the medication although they were aware of it.
Patients who used the medication experienced symptoms such as dizziness, abdominal cramps, fever, headaches, nausea, jaundice, and vomiting. Some other side effects are arrhythmia and tachycardia, skin rashes, nervous-system disorders, and vitamin-B12 deficiencies.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has demanded the withdrawal of ranitidine (most known for its brand name Zantac). Ranitidine products are no longer available for new prescriptions or over-the-counter use in the U.S.A.
Zantac was a widely distributed drug, which is why today there are thousands of claims against the companies that were producing it. Be sure to talk to your health provider if you ever took this drug and make additional tests so you can be sure about your health state.
To this day, FDA’s testing hasn’t discovered NDMA in drugs used for similar treatments such as cimetidine (Tagamet), esomeprazole (Nexium), famotidine (Pepcid), lansoprazole (Prevacid), or omeprazole (Prilosec).
If you were using this product and were diagnosed with liver cancer, kidney, stomach, prostate, pancreatic, or other digestive tract cancers, you may be entitled to compensation. These Zantac class-action lawsuits are worth billions in compensation.
