Recall of stomach acid inhibitor Ranitidine in Curacao

WILLEMSTAD - The ranitidine drug may contain traces of NDMA. Budgetpharm BV announced this. The medicine against stomach acid was largely recalled earlier in the Netherlands.

This is also the case in Curacao. There may be a contamination with NDMA. Ranitidine is a medicine that is both prescribed and freely available. NDMA is probably carcinogenic.

Anyone taking ranitidine is advised to go to the pharmacy to check if this medication falls into the risk group.
