Easiest Way to Claim Your Tagamet Recall

If you've been unfortunate enough to suffer from acidity, then you know how important it is to have an antacid tablet nearby. Tagamet antacid used to be one of the best in the market, providing relief to patients in a matter of minutes. However, the FDA issued a recall over safety concerns. With the drug pulled out of the market, individuals and retailers alike are wondering how to handle the recall. While Tagamet manufacturers have a system in place to handle the recalls, there 's a better, quicker alternative with DoNotPay. We'll walk you through how to within minutes, straight from your browser.

What Happened with the Tagamet Recall?

Tagamet tablets, sold under the brand name Cimetidine tablets, are drugs used to treat acid reflux and other stomach acidity issues in patients. In light of new carcinogen concerns, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a recall notification for Tagamet, along with other heartburn drugs including:

  • Zantac
  • Ranitidine
  • Nizatidine

According to the FDA report, these drugs contain N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a substance classified as a probable human carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO). The toxins are not a result of poor manufacturing practices, rather, the molecular make-up of the drugs.

The compounds in the drugs break down to form NDMA when exposed to heat. While no patients have reported any symptoms, it is believed that long-term use of the drugs may have adverse health effects on patients, in the long run, hence the recall .

Who Is Eligible for a Tagamet Recall?

The Tagamet recall affected both retailers and individuals. As such, all affected parties, from individuals, to hospitals and pharmaceutical retailers are eligible for a recall. If you were a patient using the drug, according to FDA recommends, you stop using it immediately and dispose of the drugs off to a drug takeback site or follow the FDA-safe drug disposal steps. If you were taking the drug under prescription, consult your doctor. An alternative drug will be recommended.

How Do I Make a Claim for the Tagamet Recall?

To make a claim for the Tagamet recall, search the FDA website for the drug you 're taking. The following details will help you determine if the specific drug you purchased has a recall:

  • Product name
  • Brand name of the drug
  • Serial/batch number
  • Place of purchase
  • Price
  • Date of purchase

You can make your Tagamet recall by:

Drugstore refund

Take the recalled drug back to the drug store where you purchased it and attach proof of purchase and proof of recall. If the drug was recalled, chances are, the store received compensation and is obligated to either give you a refund or an alternative drug.
CallingCall the Tagamet manufacturer on (412) 200-4000 and report your issue. A customer care representative will walk you through the process of claiming a recall. Provide your personal information, drug name, purchase date, and serial/batch number. Once your request is processed, you'll receive a refund.
Sending an emailSend an email to the manufacturer at Attach proof of purchase and any other required evidence to support your claim. Once a customer care representative reviews your case, the company will begin the process of getting you a refund.

Do I Immediately Get a Recall if I Report My Product?

Unless a drug has an open recall or the company issues a voluntary recall , you have to report the drug before you can claim a refund. This requires evidence proving the drug's defects. An investigation will be launched to that effect to determine the validity of your claim before you can get a refund. This process is lengthy and complex, but with DoNotPay, we can help you compile evidence and get your case heard by the right people.
