What is Zantac?
Zantac and its generic versions belong to a group of drugs called histamine-2 blockers. The drug works by reducing the amount of acid your stomach produces.
Zantac and ranitidine products have been used by prescription and over-the-counter to treat and prevent peptic ulcers in the stomach and intestines. The drug was also used to treat conditions in which the stomach produces too much acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
Zantac was also used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions in which acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus, causing acid reflux.

How Can Our Virginia Zantac Attorney Help You?
Our Virginia Zantac Attorneys are now conducting thorough investigations of individual lawsuits involving cancer and wrongful death.
Several questions remained unanswered in these cases, including whether Sanofi and other manufacturers and sellers of ranitidine knew about cancer risks associated with a probable human carcinogen but failed to warn consumers about those risks.
Consumers who have developed cancer after taking this drug have taken different approaches to pursuing just compensation, including filing and participating in class-action lawsuits and filing individual claims in state and federal courts.
Recently, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered all Zantac federal court lawsuits alleging similar claims to be consolidated for litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (MDL No. 2924).
