Never heard of the one but I was on zantac for my pregnancy with no ill effects.   I do not think prilosec causes miscarriages either.

I had bad heartburn for my first and they gave me Prilosec.  No issues except the heartburn came back pretty quickly after I finished the series and I couldn't take it again, so when heartburn came around this time, I didn't take it.  I am so sorry for your loss.

From what I have read (just now, so not a lot), neither of those have been known to cause miscarriage.

I'm so sorry! I've had a stillborn and 4 miscarriages so I do understand the need to find the reason you lost your baby. Unfortunately, with most babies you never find out why. That, I think, is the hardest thing to accept. There are no words that can ease the pain nor can knowing the reason your baby didn't live. I doubt that either of the meds in question caused your stillbirth. Doctors are so careful with pregnant women because of the risk of lawsuits that they just don't prescribe anything that isn't FDA approved for pregnant women. If there were any questions, I am sure they would have advised you at the time they prescribed the drugs. 
I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I could take away your pain but only time can do that. I'm here if you ever want to talk about him, though. ♥Hugs♥

 I'm so very sorry : ( I took Zantac while pregnant for my acid reflux. My mother had a still born at 22 weeks as well. She was sick with the flu when it happened.
