If you have been following the news about Zantac recalls and the generic drug ranitidine, you already may know that this medication has been recalled from the market by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the presence of a probable human carcinogen known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). To put it another way, the drug ranitidine, which is often used under the brand name Zantac, may contain a substance called NDMA that could cause cancer.
Over the last year, a variety of drug makers that have manufactured ranitidine products, including the maker of Zantac, have recalled the drugs from the marketplace due to this risk of cancer. In early April, the FDA required all prescription and over-the-counter forms of ranitidine drugs to be withdrawn immediately from consumer markets due to the serious risk of cancer. If you used Zantac or another ranitidine drug, you may be wondering if you should file a Zantac lawsuit.
The following are some questions you should ask yourself as you consider whether it makes sense to file a claim. If you do think you could have a case, I can help you to get started holding these drug makers accountable.
Have You Taken Zantac or Another Ranitidine Product?
The first question you should ask yourself is whether you have taken Zantac or another ranitidine medicine. You could have taken a medication prescribed by your healthcare provider, or you could have purchased an over-the-counter version of Zantac or the generic ranitidine to treat heartburn. In short, if you have ever used one of these products, you could be eligible to file a Zantac lawsuit. I can assess the specific facts of your case and can discuss the options that may be available to you.
Have You Been Diagnosed With Cancer?
In order to be eligible for compensation in a defective drug case, a plaintiff needs to be able to show that she or he has been harmed by the product. In the case of most Zantac or ranitidine lawsuits, the plaintiffs have been diagnosed with cancer, which they link to NDMA contamination.
NDMA can cause many different types of cancer. If you have been diagnosed with any form of cancer after using Zantac, or even if your doctor found precancerous cells, it is important to find out if you are eligible to file a claim.
