Uncommon Reactions to Zantac

Rare Side Effects of Zantac

Rare Zantac side effects occur in only a few patients taking the drug. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by Zantac or something else.
Some of these rare but possible side effects include, but are not limited to:
  • Dizziness or a spinning sensation (vertigo)
  • Drowsiness or sleeping difficulty (insomnia)
  • Muscle pain or joint pain
  • Hair loss (see Zantac and Hair Loss)
  • Increased risk of pneumonia
  • Blurred vision.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the Zantac side effects explained in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects during treatment. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider should be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
