    The common heartburn medication Pepcid is in short supply across Canada, and experts say it's a direct result of the recent international recall of Zantac.

    Zantac, or ranitidine, was recalled in the U.S. and Canada in October after a potentially cancer-causing chemical was found at low levels in the drug.

    Now CBC News has learned that Pepcid, also known as famotidine, a possible replacement for Zantac, is facing shortages that could last several months.​

    The article goes on say the shortage will last until March.
