Even though its sales had fallen off due to increased competition, Zantac (Ranitidine) was once one of the highest-selling drugs in the country. For a time, people associated relief from heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease with taking Zantac even though it is not designed to be used as a fast-acting means of relief.

Now, they can no longer reach for this heartburn remedy as it has been recalled and pulled from the shelves by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Instead of reaping outsize profits from their medication, the makers of Zantac are now facing lawsuits because Zantac has been found to contain a carcinogen.

Much is still being learned about the extent of the contamination, but plaintiffs have come forward with lawsuits claiming that they took Zantac and developed cancer.

Amiodarone (pacerone & nexterone) is a medication formulated to improve heartbeat rhythm. Doctors prescribe the drug to patients with life-threatening ventricle-related heart rhythm disorders to ensure the heart beats normally. The ventricles are the heart’s lower chambers that allow blood flow out from the heart.

The medication Amiodarone (pacerone) is affected for treating ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. The medication was first discovered in 1961 and received final FDA approval in December 1985. The drug has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for any other condition.

Tecfidera (dimethyl fumarate) is a highly effective oral drug brought to the medical marketplace by Biogenic, Inc. to treat MS (multiple sclerosis). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug in March 2013 to prevent the relapse of MS. However, one reported case has been noted on the updated FDA drug label (December 2014) linking Tecfidera (dimethyl fumarate) taken for multiple sclerosis with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), life-threatening brain infection.

This is the fourth case reported to the FDA, which resulted in an increased warning of the dangerous life-threatening side effects when taking medications to treat MS. The initial three cases of PML are apparently associated with the oral medication fingolimod among patients who had suffered severe low lymphocyte count (lymphopenia). However, the fourth case happened with “a patient with only moderate lymphopenia” that has raised concerning questions about Tecfidera’s effectiveness versus its safety.
