What you need to know about the FDA safety warning about Zantac (ranitidine)

The federal government has taken decisive action in recent months to protect the public against the potential dangers posed by medications which contain ranitidine, an active ingredient in the drug Zantac.

On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to the public about all ranitidine-based drugs. Specifically, the FDA asked all pharmaceutical companies to stop selling drugs which contain ranitidine due to health concerns about these drugs.

In particular, recent scientific studies have found that certain ranitidine-based drugs contained elevated levels of certain carcinogenic substances. A carcinogenic substance is something which causes cancer.

N-nitrosodimethylamine in Zantac (ranitidine) is a dangerous substance

Scientific studies cited by the FDA in its April 2020 advisory concerned increased levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in certain Zantac users. N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is an industrial chemical known to cause cancer.

The April 2020 FDA warning is the second warning issued by the FDA within the past year. In September 2019, the FDA issued a public health advisory in response to the scientific studies linking Zantac use to increased NDMA levels.

Walmart, Walgreens and CVS stop selling Zantac

Many nationwide stores took immediate action after the FDA issued its first warning in September 2019. That same month, CVS, Walgreens and Walmart immediately stopped selling Zantac and other medications which contain ranitidine.

In October 2019, Sanofi announced it was voluntarily recalling Zantac in the United States and Canada. The multinational drug company said it was taking these actions “due to inconsistencies in preliminary test results,” according to its announcement on Oct. 18, 2019.
