You may have noticed that your go-to antacid medication is no longer available at your local drugstore. The popular heartburn medication, Zantac, was removed from pharmacy and retail shelves last year after an investigation by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) detected an impurity known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in Zantac medications.
NDMA has been identified as a probable human carcinogen, meaning it is a substance that can cause cancer. After the FDA’s findings were made public and the nation’s largest pharmacy retailers pulled Zantac from their shelves, many people were left wondering what this means for their health.
You may qualify for legal help and should consult with a Zantac attorney to discuss your options if you think you meet certain health criteria related to Zantac use.
Answering yes to both of these questions means you are likely eligible to pursue a Zantac lawsuit. By filing a lawsuit with the help of a Zantac attorney, you may be able to recover damages for the pain and suffering you experienced because of the drug. If you have a loved one who died as a result of cancer caused by Zantac, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
