This report appeared in the news yesterday, so I wanted to pass it on to my patients and others who may read this blog.

The article indicates that it doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to stop taking Zantac but, since there are other alternatives for persons who may be on it, I see no reason why you shouldn’t stop it, in an abundance of caution.

If you have GI issues, take Zantac and want a recommendation about an alternative, please let me know.
