Ranitidine, known under the brand name of Zantac, is a heartburn medication that, for years, was sold both over the counter and as a prescription.  GSK developed Zantac in 1977 and was approved by the FDA in 1983. In 2004, Pfizer developed an over-the-counter version, then sold it to Boehringer Ingelheim in 2006.  Later, Sanofi-AS purchased OTC Zantac in 2017. To date, there are more than 20 different generic manufacturers of ranitidine. However, recent studies have shown Zantac may contain unsafe amounts of the carcinogen NDMA, a known probable carcinogen.

If you or your loved one was diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac, we may be able to help.  Call (888) 783-8378 for your free case evaluation.
