Ranitidine recalls continue, but don't get the press they need

Along with everyone else in the country, Ohio residents have bigger concerns than what is happening with heartburn medications. However, it is still important to keep up to date on ranitidine recalls, especially for those who are having issues due to stress. Some people may be surprised to learn that testing and the investigation into the presence of N-Nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, continues regardless of what else may be going on right now.

Judge consolidates Zantac claims: What does it mean for victims?

Multiple consumers of Zantac, a popular heartburn relief medication, have filed claims against the drug manufacturers claiming use of the medication led to the development of cancer. In February, The Judicial Panel for Multi District Litigation assigned all of the cases across the country to Judge Rosenberg in the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in Palm Beach.

Zantac recall: Was there a breakdown in the drug review process?

Ohio residents used to trust that the medications prescribed to or purchased by them were safe. The blood pressure and Zantac recall issues over the last couple of years could now cause many people to question the safety of the both over-the-counter and prescribed medications. One question now former Zantac users may have is whether there was a breakdown in the drug review process conducted by the Food and Drug Administration.

Nizatidine added to list of medications recalled for NDMA

Since Sept. 2019, more and more drug recalls have surfaced regarding heartburn medications containing ranitidine, the most popular of which is Zantac. Once the recalls started, they continued to expand to include nearly all brands of this medication.

Is heat during shipping and storing to blame for Zantac recall?

Since the recalls of products containing ranitidine began last year, the Food and Drug Administration, along with consumers here in Ohio and elsewhere, pharmaceutical companies and researchers have been asking why N-nitrosodimethylamine was found in unsafe concentrations in the popular heartburn medication. Now, there could finally be some clues as to why the Zantac debacle occurred. Emery Pharma's initial reports may provide promising answers, which could ultimately reveal how to make the medication safe again.

Storing Zantac in a warm room could increase the health risks

Since last fall, several companies have recalled Zantac and its generic alternative, ranitidine, from stores. This occurred in response to the discovery of unacceptable levels of a chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in some samples of the product.

Did Zantac recall only bolster woman's breast cancer claim?

People are already beginning to come forward to claim that ranitidine caused their cancer. After taking the medications for decades, they are now receiving diagnoses of a variety of cancers. It is possible that the Zantac recall gave many individuals, including some here in Ohio, the connection they were missing regarding why they ended up with cancer.
