Ranitidine Products Removed from Formulary April 4, 2020

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. FirstCare removed all ranitidine products from the Medicaid and CHIP formularies on April 4, 2020. Formulary alternatives available include famotidine (10mg, 20mg and 40mg), cimetidine (200mg, 300mg, 400mg, and 800mg), and nizatidine (150mg and 300mg). For more information click here.
