Zantac® Contains NDMA
Ranitidine medications, including Zantac®, have been found to contain N-Nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, at unsafe levels. When stored at higher temperatures or consumed, ranitidine, the active ingredient in Zantac®, can be converted into NDMA. This chemical is a known carcinogen and could put your health at serious risk when consumed in large quantities.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been conducting ongoing investigations into the safety of Zantac® and recently ordered that all ranitidine manufacturers pull these drugs from the market immediately as a result.
NDMA: A Cancer-Causing Substance
NDMA has been classified as a human carcinogen by health groups across the world, including the World Health Organization and the FDA.
It takes a large quantity of NDMA to be toxic to humans. According to the FDA, you can safely consume about 96 grams of NDMA each day without suffering any negative effects. The levels of NDMA in Zantac® are astronomically higher, ranging from 3,000 to 26,000 times more than the amount determined to be safe.
Symptoms and Complications From Zantac® and NDMA
Taking Zantac® regularly has been linked to an increased risk of developing cancer due to NDMA exposure. In addition to the risk of cancer, overexposure to NDMA can cause:
- Enlarged liver
- Severe headaches
- Severe stomach cramping
Remember to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you’ve experienced any of these symptoms after taking Zantac®.
Drugmakers Failed to Warn About the Dangers
The link between NDMA and cancer has long been established by researchers. However, drugmakers, like Sanofi, never warned consumers or health care professionals about the presence of NDMA and the increased cancer risk, putting the lives of millions in danger. Lawsuits allege that ranitidine makers knew or should have known about the risks and taken appropriate action to warn consumers.
Zantac® and its generic alternatives have been taken by millions of people every year for decades all across the country. Drugmakers have a legal duty to warn people about any potential dangers associated with their products. When they fail to do so and innocent people get hurt, we must hold them accountable.

Has There Been a Zantac® Recall?
The FDA ordered a Zantac® recall as of April 2020. This was done in response to overwhelming evidence of the link between Zantac®, NDMA, and cancer. Several drugmakers, including Sanofi, had already voluntarily recalled their products and numerous pharmacies have also stopped selling Zantac® and its generic equivalents.
Will Filing a Zantac® Lawsuit Help?
Dealing with a cancer diagnosis is incredibly difficult for you and your loved ones. While filing a Zantac® lawsuit won’t undo the immense pain you’ve been forced to endure, it can help ease the financial burden of your medical bills and other expenses caused by this dangerous drug.
Compensation from a lawsuit can help cover the following:
- Medical bills and ongoing treatment expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Death benefits (if a loved one has died from cancer after taking Zantac®)
