What is Zantac?
Before we continue, it is useful, at this juncture, to look at a specific definition of the medication, Zantac, and its uses.
According to The National Law Review website, “Zantac is the brand name of a common heartburn medication known as Ranitidine.” Its purpose is to reduce stomach acid by preventing the histamine receptors in the stomach from being active. Finally, it is a frontline treatment for stomach ulcers, reflux, and their associated ailments. Consequently, it’s essential to note it is critical to base the successful treatment of your stomach ulcers on a holistic approach that includes treatment of the underlying causes ergo, stress, anxiety, and depression.
The Zantac class-action lawsuit
Unfortunately, based on research by an independent laboratory, and a petition submitted to the FDA, experts believe that Zantac contains high levels of a cancer-causing carcinogen, NDMA, Nitrosodimethylamine.
Additional studies are starting to provide evidence that the unstable molecules in Zantac break down easily in the digestive tract, which, in turn, results in large concentrations of NDMA. Furthermore, when the Zantac molecules mix with naturally-occurring nitrates in our digestive tract, the result is dangerous NDMA levels.
Finally, scientists are starting to link primary cancers like colorectal, stomach, liver, Oesophageal, and small intestine to these dangerously high NDMA volumes in the human digestive tract.
Therefore, the question that should be asked and answered is: What do you do if you are taking Zantac and believe you have been harmed by this medication?
The simple answer is to determine whether you qualify to file a Zantac lawsuit by providing evidence that you were prescribed the drug, took it based on the doctor’s prescription and that the Zantac caused damage such as the primary cancers mentioned above.
It is best to approach a personal injury lawyer who has experience in filing class-action lawsuits. This statement is based on the fundamental premise that it is not a simple matter to successfully submit the class action lawsuit as the legal definition of a class-action lawsuit is that a group of people with a similar complaint band together to select a single representor. In this case, the person that represents this group of people is an attorney.
