Scary thought. We rely on our doctors to recommend the right medication for our ailments. We rely on the FDA to ensure the safety of our medication. However, new evidence suggests that drugs can change and produce N-nitrosodimethylamine, NDMA, a probable carcinogen despite safety measures. Drugs previously thought safe are now being linked to cancer. Zantac, as an example, has been a commonly used over-the-counter medicine for decades. Recently, the FDA issued a recall when it was linked to cancer.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer due to a prescription or over-the-counter medication, you need a personal injury attorney in Miami, Florida.

NDMA Increases in out Drugs

According to C. Michael White, Pharm. D., and professor, new studies show NDMA is increasing on the shelves in our medicine cabinets and even in our bodies. The FDA allows for 96 nanograms of NDMA in each pill. However, over the years, they have found excessive amounts.

  • One study found 18 nanograms of NDMA after manufacturing. When it was stored at 158 degrees for 12 days, NDMA rose above 14 ng.
  • Another study simulated the environment of the stomach, which increased NDMA to over 10,000 ng.
  • A clinical study tested 10 adults before and after taking ranitidine (the active ingredient in Zantac). The dose of NDMA rose from 100 ng to 40,000 ng over a day

Higher temperatures, like a humid factory floor, your medicine cabinet, a hot car, all contribute to higher NDMA doses.
