Antacid drugs are among some of the most commonly taken drugs in the USA. One of these drugs, Zantac (Ranitidine in its generic form), which is regularly taken by millions, has been recently identified as having a cancer-causing ingredient nearly 3,000 times more than the FDA’s recommended daily limit.

Growing evidence suggests that pharmaceutical companies Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim, manufacturer of Zantac, allegedly concealed Zantac’s cancer link despite knowledge of its potential cancer-causing effects. Meanwhile, the company generated sales of over $1 billion in profit.

Past users of Zantac are now filing Zantac lawsuits in order to hold Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim accountable for blatant disregard for the health of their consumers and for endangering the lives of countless numbers of people.
