According to the FDA, the popular heartburn and acid reflux medication Zantac may contain a human carcinogen, or a cancer-causing chemical. Several drug manufacturers issued voluntary recalls of products containing ranitidine since the discovery that it contains N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical that can cause cancer.
Ranitidine is found in products that are sold both over the counter and by prescription. Depending on how you obtained Zantac or another ranitidine product, you may be able to get your money back by returning the medication for a full refund.
Major Pharmaceutical Retailers May Issue A Refund For Zantac
Major pharmaceutical retailers have suspended sales of Zantac and other over-the-counter medications that include ranitidine. To get your money back, many major retailers will issue a refund for Zantac or other ranitidine products once you return the item. Different store policies may apply, so be sure to contact the retailer to see what your options are.
Pharmaceutical retailers that may issue a monetary refund for purchasing Zantac include:
- CVS Pharmacy
- Sam’s Club
- Rite Aid
This list may not include all the pharmacies issuing refunds for Zantac purchases. Consult with your pharmacist to determine your options for getting your money back.

Legal Options For Getting Your Money Back From Zantac
Besides getting a refund for the money you spent on Zantac, you also have additional legal options. If you were diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac, you may be able to collect monetary damages for any injury or loss you suffered from taking Zantac, as well as any money you spent on the medication.
If you have cancer and have taken Zantac, you can file different lawsuits that include:
- Zantac personal injury lawsuit
- Zantac wrongful death lawsuit
- Zantac class-action lawsuit
- Zantac multidistrict lawsuit
Zantac Personal Injury Lawsuit
If you file a personal injury lawsuit, you likely suffered some kind of personal injury as a result of taking Zantac. This could include organ damage or contracting some kind of cancer. With a personal injury claim, you’ll seek compensation for perceived damages.
Zantac Wrongful Death Lawsuit
If a loved one passed away from cancer, a wrongful death lawsuit is a type of personal injury claim that holds a party liable for your loved one’s death.
In this case, you could pursue compensation from a Zantac manufacturer if your deceased loved one frequently took the medication. The compensation you receive in a wrongful death lawsuit will be similar to the money you’re awarded in a personal injury lawsuit.
Zantac Class Action Lawsuits
A class action lawsuit allows you to collect the money you spent on Zantac purchases. Class action lawsuits are filed on behalf of anyone who bought Zantac, even if they never developed cancer. If you join a class action lawsuit, you’ll seek to hold the drug manufacturers responsible for profiting from a medication that has the potential to cause cancer.
Zantac Multidistrict Lawsuit
Multidistrict lawsuits combine individual claims to save a court from seeing numerous cases on the same thing. However, individual verdicts are based on each person’s particular damages and injuries related to Zantac or ranitidine. Because of this, you can be further compensated for more than just the money you spent on Zantac.
