Zantac was recently removed from the market (along with other ranitidine products) based on the drug’s association with NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine) – a probable carcinogen. This association is so concerning that some manufacturers of generic equivalents had already pulled their versions, and several large drugstore chains had already dropped the medications months earlier. Pancreatic cancer is one of the cancers that’s closely associated with NDMA.
Pancreatic cancer is a rare form of cancer that forms in the pancreas and that is difficult to detect in its early stages. Once advanced, the disease becomes much more difficult to treat. Prevailing scientific evidence points to a connection between NDMA and pancreatic cancer.
The symptoms associated with more advanced stages of pancreatic cancer as advanced by the Mayo Clinic include:
Zantac is a very popular and profitable medication that has been on the market for decades and that continued to be widely used until the recent market withdrawals. Had consumers been forewarned, they could have at least made better-informed decisions regarding the drug’s side effects.
If you’ve been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer after being a regular user of Zantac, discuss your concerns and the possible connection with a formidable drug injury lawyer today.
2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
