Did You Take Zantac?

You may be entitled to compensation.

In April 2020, the FDA requested all manufacturers of ranitidine and brand-name equivalents (i.e., Zantac) pull their products from the shelves. This resulted in pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Kroger, Publix, and Walmart dropping the heartburn medication.

Why? Because the FDA and organizations found high concentrations of NDMA (nitrosodimethylamine). NDMA is a known carcinogenic and has been the cause of other drug recalls in recent history. Studies have demonstrated a link between NDMA and cancer since the 1980s.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac or other ranitidine products designed to treat heartburn, you may qualify for compensation.

Our Zantac lawsuit attorneys have won billions of dollars for our clients, and we have successfully investigated other pharmaceutical companies for serious breaches of public health and safety.

  • What Kind of Cancer Is Associated with Zantac Usage?

    The link between Zantac use and cancer has existed for decades. As such, there is a wide variety of cancers tied to ranitidine. However, some cancers have a longer history and a stronger correlation.

    If you’ve been diagnosed with any of the following cancers, speak with our team as soon as possible:

    Even if your cancer appeared in a different area than the above list, speak with us. There’s no way to know if you have a potential case until you take our short quiz.

  • How Long Has Zantac Had NDMA in It?

    Per the FDA, there are no ways of testing how long Zantac has been contaminated for. Because of that, we may never know how many people ingested NDMA unknowingly. People have been taking Zantac for nearly 40 years. Since 1981, Zantac and its generic variants have been some of the most widely used and prescribed medications in the world. In 1987, it was the single most common prescription. Until recently, more than 16 million people were taking Zantac to treat GERD, heartburn, and other acid reflux conditions. Because there’s no knowing how long anyone has been exposed to cancer-causing chemicals in Zantac, any cancer diagnoses following the use of Zantac ought to be investigated.

  • How Much Does It Cost to Hire You?

    As personal injury lawyers, we work on a contingency fee basis. Our clients don’t pay us anything upfront to hire us. Instead, our clients agree to pay a portion of the final verdict or settlement at the end of the case. That means our clients pay nothing if they hire us—we only get paid if we win. Contingency fees mean our firm invests as much time and resources in your case as it takes to win. There’s no billing, no invoices, and no tracking hours or phone calls. If you have a question, we’re always available to talk. 

    In the end, we want the same thing you do: for Zantac manufacturers to compensate you for the harm they caused.
