No More Zantac After Today

The FDA has recommended that all Zantac and other prescription and over the counter drugs containing ranitidine be removed from the market immediately. Apparently they are concerned about the impurity and cancer causing NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine) contaminants in the medication. Zantac is commonly used to treat and also to help prevent heartburn.The FDA originally warned against the drug back in September and is now following through with their decision to remove it completely from the market.
