Zantac Lawyer in San Diego
Zantac and its generic Ranitidine have been known to ease heartburn and stomach ulcers and have been prescribed by doctors nationwide. Zantac can be purchased over the counter as well, in a pharmacy or local drug store near you.
In a recent study, a cancer-causing substance and carcinogenic compound NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine) was located in Zantac by the FDA. This compound is commonly used in gasoline, rocket fuel, as a stabilizer in industrial materials, and as an additive to lubricants.
What is Zantac
According to WebMD, Zantac is “Ranitidine” and is used to prevent and treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines. Zantac is also used to treat stomach and throat (esophagus) problems. I.e., erosive esophagitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease-GERD, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. The purpose of Zantac is to decrease the amount of acid your stomach produces. It relieves symptoms such as a persistent cough, pain in the stomach, heartburn, and difficulty swallowing. Ranitidine is a class of drugs called: H2 blockers.
Why you should stop taking Zantac
The Mitchell Firm genuinely cares about the people they serve. We want you to know that many companies are taking Zantac off the shelves, including Walgreens, CVS, and even the drug manufacturers: Sandoz and Apotex. The FDA has ordered a recall for the drug Zantac aka Ranitidine. It is said to have high levels of NDMA, which is known to cause various types of cancer. Dr. Andrew Gray (MHRA Deputy Director of Inspections) of Enforcement & Standards said: “The recall affects 13 separate ranitidine products. The FDA advised retailers to stop supplying the recalled products immediately and for all remaining stock to be quarantined and returned without delay to the supplier.”
