Because it may cause cancer, the Center has taken the well-known antacid salt Ranitidine off the list of critical medications. The list has been updated to remove 26 medications.

Aciloc, Zinetac, and Rantac are just a few of the well-known brand names for ranitidine, which is frequently given for conditions related to acidity and stomachaches.

The new National List of Essential Medicines (NLEM), which includes 384 medications, was announced by the Health Ministry on Tuesday. 26 medications that were removed from the list will no longer be available in the nation.
