Zantac® issues and how we can help
Zantac® is an anti-acid drug available over the counter and with a prescription. In its OTC form, it treats heartburn and acid indigestion. In prescription strength, it treats ulcers, GERD and erosive esophagitis. It starts to work in as little as 30 minutes and can last up to 12 hours. Potential drug interactions include warfarin, ketoconazole and atazanavir.
Unfortunately, Zantac® also causes cancer.
In April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requested manufacturers of Zantac® and its generic forms withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter versions of the drugs immediately over concerns of contamination with N-Nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, a chemical impurity that could cause cancer.
