  • Updated April 8

On April 1, the Food and Drug Administration requested manufacturers withdraw all ranitidine products (commonly known by the brand name Zantac) from the market because of consumer exposure to unacceptable levels of impurities. VDP removed all ranitidine products (over-the-counter, prescription, and injectables) from the Medicaid and CHIP formularies on April 2. Formulary alternatives available include famotidine (10 mg, 20 mg and 40 mg), cimetidine (200 mg, 300 mg, 400 mg, and 800 mg), and nizatidine (150 mg and 300 mg). A list of the removed drugs is below. Contact vdp-formulary@hhsc.state.tx.us with questions or for more information.
