Health Ministry Halts Importation of Zantac
The Ministry of Health has announced that further importation of the popular heartburn drug Ranitidine into the island will cease with immediate effect.
Ranitidine, sold under the trade name Zantac, among others, reduces stomach acid production.
The drug has been coming off store shelves across the globe in recent times due to potential cancer risks following a warning by the US Food and Drug Administration.
The ministry said it became aware of the issue via reports by the US Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada and the European Directorate for Quality of Medicines.
