What is Zantac (Ranitidine)?
Ranitidine is the generic name for a drug most commonly known by the brand name Zantac. Zantac was created in the 1980s and was used for over 30 years to treat heartburn in patients worldwide. During its heyday, Zantac was the most prescribed drug in the world.
The Risks of Zantac Use
In September of 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published data that suggested significant amounts of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a known carcinogen, could be found in some Zantac products. The compound was particularly prevalent in Zantac products that had either been on the shelves for an extended period of time or had been exposed to above average temperatures. A few months later, in early 2020, all Zantac products were recalled.
