What are the side effects of Zantac?

The generic antacid for Zantac. What type of side effects or other serious ailments would occur with prolonged use of this product. My husband took this for years and died of gall bladder and liver cancer in 2114. Could this product have contributed to prolonged use of this product?

Hi,

Milder ones include Headache, constipation or diarrhea. Few serious adverse effects are blurred vision, mood changes, easy bleeding/bruising, enlarged breasts, severe tiredness, irregular heartbeat.

But to best of my knowledge, I am not aware that these agents are likely to cause any cancer.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Harish Naik, General & Family Physician
