What is Zantac?

Zantac (ranitidine) is a prescription and over-the-counter medication used to treat ulcers, acid indigestion, GERD, heartburn, sour stomach, and difficulty swallowing in the human body. It belongs to a class of drugs called H2 blockers.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall after Zantac made with ranitidine was found to contain the carcinogen NDMA. A reformulated Zantac, Zantac 360, is currently available with famotidine replacing ranitidine.

What is Generic Ranitidine?

Ranitidine is available both over the counter (OTC) and by prescription. OTC ranitidine is commonly used to relieve and prevent gastroesophageal reflux disease. Prescription strengths are also used to treat and prevent more serious ulcers in the stomach and intestines.

Multiple companies sell generic versions of both the OTC and prescription products. So far, only Novartis/Sandoz and Apotex have recalled products. Ranitidine distributed by other drug manufacturers remain on store shelves.

Status of Zantac Class Action lawsuit

The class action suit against Zantac drug companies in California is the first to officially schedule a trial date. Superior Court of Alameda Judge Evelio Grillo has set the start date for Zantac Cancer Cases for October 10, 2022.

In October 2021, efforts to stop the personal injury lawsuit multidistrict litigation (MDL) before the court in West Palm Beach, Florida, were rejected. U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg ruled that cases can proceed. More than 800 cases are pending before Judge Rosenberg.

While the California trial is the first to be scheduled, trials in the MDL in Florida, and other cases in states including Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington could be scheduled to begin before the trial in Alameda.

The trial before Judge Grillo is the first in a series of bellwether tests, beginning with a case the personal injury attorney and law firm selected. Next up will be a case the defendants selected scheduled to begin on February 6, 2023. The next two are scheduled for May 1, 2023 (plaintiff selected) and August 7, 2023 (defendant selected).
