Zantac is a heartburn treatment medication that was once one of the most popular drugs used to manage the condition. Ranitidine is the generic form or Zantac. The medication was once available in prescription and over-the-counter forms. Zantac has since been recalled and is no longer available at Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS, and other major retailers. The nationwide recall was prompted by the discovery of a potential relationship between Zantac use and cancer diagnoses.
Does Zantac Cause Cancer?
There is evidence that supports a link between the use of Zantac and the development of cancer. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted tests on Zantac, as well as other ranitidine drugs, and discovered traces of cancer-causing chemicals in the medication. In particular, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) was detected in Zantac. NDMA is known as a “probable” carcinogen.
What Should I Do if I Use Zantac?
As a Zantac user, you are likely feeling concerned about what you should do to prevent injury and continue treating your heartburn. While your concern is understandable, you should never stop using any medication without the guidance of your doctor. You should continue using the medication until you are able to consult with your doctor and develop a new treatment plan.
It may also be helpful to express your concerns about the recall with your doctor so they can evaluate the risks of using Zantac and other ranitidine drugs. It is important to keep in mind that every person is different, and that you should only make decisions about your health based on your own doctor’s advice.
